IN HASTINGS, FLORIDA, THE MAKEOVER OF A TERMITE-RIDDEN FORMER ARMY BARRACKS HOME THAT'S REPLACED WITH A BRAND NEW HOUSE IS THE SUBJECT OF "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION -- HOW'D THEY DO THAT?"
"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition -- How'd They Do That? Harvey Family" - On Sunday,
April 24, viewers will witness how the design team from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" transformed an 1100-square-foot home of the much loved and hard-working Harvey family from Hastings, Florida (near the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area) into 4300 square-feet of magnificent living space in just seven days. The rebuilding of their home will be the subject of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," on MONDAY, APRIL 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
When Willie Harvey was diagnosed with epilepsy, his work as a mechanic and heavy equipment operator -- as well as the repairs he'd been making to the family's 1930s Army barracks home -- came to an abrupt halt. Employers wouldn't hire him for fear of possible seizures, and as a result Willie was forced into unemployment. His wife, Alecia, was working two full-time jobs and putting herself through nursing school to better provide for her husband and their children -- Derrick, 21, Arlayceea, 15, Willie, Jr., 9, Jasmine, 7 -- and Alecia's aunt, Mary McCloud.
Still, Willie and Alecia were barely able to make ends meet. Meanwhile, their home was falling down on them! Built in the 1930s as part of an Army barracks, the Harveys' two-bedroom house was also home to several thousand troops of termites.
As with all of the intense remodeling projects that "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" undertakes, there is a great deal that goes on that does not make it into the final broadcast. Now viewers can see all of that and more.
