We get a glimpse inside Melissa Gorga’s home each week on Real Housewives of New Jersey, but E! News has given us an exclusive look into the Gorga family’s recently renovated house.

Melissa explained that husband, Joe, built the house from the ground up. They’d been looking to move to the Franklin Lakes neighborhood for a while and Joe eventually surprised Melissa with his plans to build the home.

“He surprised me on Christmas eve, he had the plans and he had bought the lot without me knowing,” Melissa explained.

The Gorgas have just finished their new, amazing backyard pool! It took nearly a year to complete, but was finished just in time for Antonia’s 11th birthday celebration.

Although the interior of the house was originally very warm with gold and dark colored accents, the Gorgas did a renovation to brighten things up. Now, the home has been brightened up with primarily white décor.
