The Sedrakyan family home is in the middle phase of its renovation. Hanreta Sedrakyan, her husband, and their children are expanding the house to accommodate a growing multi-generational family. The upper floor is a new addition, though only the broad strokes have been applied thus far: the floors and walls which will encircle a new balcony and at least one new bedroom are still bare stone and concrete. On the ground floor, Mr. Sedrakyan has built a new washroom (complete with a large bathtub) and a new water closet.
The involvement of Habitat for Humanity, from which the family obtained a loan for their home expansion project, was much needed and appreciated, Hanreta said. The extra space will shelter this family for many years to come.
