Extreme Makeover Home Edition: Jillian Harris On Beaufort Build

January 30, 2011 03:00 PM by Candace Young

Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team member, Jillian Harris, recently spoke to the media while on a build for the show in Beaufort County in South Carolina. Jillian was helping out with a new home for the Dickinson family at the time. Read on to find out what Jillian had to say about the location, and her favorite part of the project!

Jillian Harris, formerly of The Bachelorette, joined the Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team this season, and recently spent some time working on a build for the Dickinson family of Beaufort County, South Carolina.

According to Examiner.com, while on-site, Jillian told media that she was loving everything about the location – including the cold weather. She spoke about the warm reception she received, saying, “Everybody is so kind.  It feels like home.”

The design team was in Beaufort to work with Hilton Head’s H2 Builders, and thousands of volunteers, on building a new home for Marine Staff Sergeant Bill Dickinson, his wife India, and their five children, Grant, Brianna, Bailey, Isabella, and Sophia.  Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, and Xzibit were the other design team members on the project.  The family had been enduring living in a home with mold, while Bill, who has served the military for 17 years, is deployed in Afghanistan.

What does Jillian enjoy most on a build? She told media, “I always have fun doing the girl’s rooms.”  She added that the sky is the limit and, “Whatever you can dream you can usually build.”

India Dickinson and the kids went to Disneyland while the new home was built. Bill remained in Afghanistan, and watched the reveal from there. The episode will air sometime in coming weeks.
