How hard is to integrate Orchard into existing MVC app?

I have an MVC app that needs a few basic CMS features - adding a page with text, changing page text and maybe blog. It is the opposite of writing Orchard module, I need to bolt CMS into the app in order not develop my own, which I know will be primitive.  I would much rather use Orchard code as it is rather than forking it or pulling pieces out of it. Would creating an Orchard area in my app would be a way to do it?

In general, how much work is required for such kind of this integration?

You can't, sorry. Orchard has not been designed for that scenario. You can integrate your existing code as a module, but not ther reverse.
