"EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" GIVES A MODERN DAY "BRADY BUNCH"
WHO KEEP KIDS OFF THE STREET AND HELP THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED
IN THEIR COMMUNITY THE HOME THEY TRULY DESERVE
"Turner Family" -- The Turner family of Fairmont, West Virginia learned the thrilling news that Ty and the designers of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will be remodeling their home to create enough space for their blended family of seven to enjoy, on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," SUNDAY, MARCH 9 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Editors note: This episode was originally scheduled to air on March 2.
When they married in 2003, Angie and Richard Turner transformed their family into a modern day "Brady Bunch." Angie, her daughter Theresa, and sons Tyron and Desmond welcomed Richard, his daughter Layton and cousin Michael into their home after the marriage. In addition to dedicating their lives to their children, the Turners serve as positive role models for local youth, as they strive to keep children off the streets by coaching football, basketball and cheerleading, fundraising and mentoring.
While keeping the local kids on track, the Turners are also care takers for mentally challenged adults. They hope to open up their own business to help the mentally challenged someday. But the Turner's rotting home, which measures less than 600 square feet, is too small for this caring family of seven. The flooring is unstable, the kitchen cabinets are falling off and there isn't even enough sleeping space for the whole family. Teresa and Layton share a bed, while Desmond, Aldric and Michael sleep on the floor. There is simply not enough room for the family to function or even eat dinner together at the dining room table. Now it's time for Ty and his crew to return the kindness and generosity that this big-hearted family has shown to the community.
While Ty and the designers, local builder Huffman Corporation and the hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Turner family will go on vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Tanya McQueen, Didiayer, Ed Sanders and Eduardo Xol.
