Hanreta Sedrakyan's family

This property was passed down to two brothers, whom now are grandfathers. The brothers got married and started their family in this house, and now both of the brother’s sons are having kids of their own. Last year, the house was split into two, and to make it suitable for the three-generation family, the homes will expand.

Mr. Sedrakyan did the renovation of the home, “I am the constructor, designer, and architect of this house!” he said proudly, and righteously so, the repair is alluring!

The family owns a small piece of land and cultivates it for food and income. The men in the family are migrant workers, whom will most likely spend the next few months in Armenia to finish the refurnishing of their home. “If we don’t finish at least one of the bedroom before November, this will be a very difficult winter for my mother, wife, and grandchildren.

In winter, Armenia is radiant with snow, the air is crisp, and the sun is vivid. Due to the lack of proper heating, a lot of Armenians fear this marvelous season. I hope through Habitat’s assistant, this season will soon be embraced. Until next time, keep thinking sweet thoughts!
