We know that Snooki, her fiance Jionni LaValle, and baby Lorenzo are all very comfy and cozy living in his parents’ basement in northern New Jersey right now. But we aren’t the only ones wondering how much longer that living situation can realistically last.

Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the meatball mama at a Jersey Shore press conference recently, and Snooks revealed what she and her family are planning next.

“We just bought land in Jersey,” she said. “It’s like 10 minutes away from [Jionni’s] mother’s house. It’s probably going to take a year and a half to build.”

So, basically, the LaValle famiglia will be building their own Jersey dream house from scratch. We think that sounds kind of romantic! As long as they don’t use bricks designed to look like massive animal prints for the exterior, we approve.
