The Extreme Makeover Home Edition team travels to Richland Center, Wisconsin to help the Anders-Beatty family. The Anders-Beatty family home is crumbling apart. It suffers from water damage, peeling roof and nesting critters.
For the past twenty-nine years, Rochelle Anders has been employed as a first-grade teacher. In 2005, Rochelle received the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year Award from Richland Center.
Rochelle Anders has four children, who range in age from twelve to twenty. The roud children are named Tess, Reid, Drew and Tyler. The children’s father passed away suddenly from a heart attack.
Even though Rochelle has tried to repair her home, she has not had much success. The roof is peeling, the wood siding is crumbling, and animals are nesting in the walls. There are also holes in the ceiling and water damage on the walls. The only method of heating the home is through a wood-burning furnace.
Ty Pennington, his design team, local builder Veridian Homes, and hundreds of volunteers will work together to rebuild the Anders-Beatty family home. The design team consists of Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Eduardo Xol and John Littlefield. Extreme Makeover Home Edition airs on Sunday, October 12 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET on ABC.
