On this week’s episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Ty Pennington and his team travel to Kirkland, Washington to renovate the home and backyard pool of the Chapin family. The Chapin family consists of single mother Connie Chapin and her two daughters, Molly and Anna.
Connie Chapin runs her own swim instruction company using her backyard pool. Connie has taught over 200 kids how to swim, including some who suffer from various disabilities like autism and cerebral palsy. Connie and her daughters are also active in several community charities, their church and local awareness groups.
Unfortunately, city inspectors determined in 2005 that backyard pool facility was not up to code in certain areas. Connie was given a list of required improvements to make, and she has been getting extensions as she attempts to make the improvements. In addition, Connie’s home was inspected, and she learned that it had been poorly constructed and was on the brink of collapse.
The design team for this episode of will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Michael Moloney, Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis and John Littlefield. Extreme Makeover Home Edition airs on Sunday, December 16 from 8PM to 9PM ET on ABC.
