The big-hearted Hill-Burdette family of Virginia Beach, Virginia have fostered children for over 18 years. Faulty construction was threatening their current home, so Extreme Makeover Home Edition turned up to build a new one! Keep reading for a sneak peek at the project…
According to ABC, Beverly Hill has a platinum heart to match her big ticket name. She has opened her home up to more than 35 foster children over an 18 year span, as well as starting an initiative to help feed and clothe the homeless. Additionally, after raising her two biological children, Beverly adopted six girls in the age range of 9 to 18.
Unfortunately, the home of Beverly and her husband, Fred Burdette, who believe that every child deserves a happy childhood and a loving home, is began to have issues due to faulty construction, which put the ‘giving back’ they like to do in jeopardy. Extreme Makeover Home Edition came to their rescue.
Led by a deafening big rig demolition, Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team started building a new home while the Hill-Burdettes went on vacation.
During the week-long project, design team members John Littlefield and Xzibit organized a food drive in the community to help build up the family’s pantry.
Fittingly, the family vacationed in Beverly Hills, California, where Paige Hemmis joined them to demonstrate how to kick up their heels in style.
The Hill-Burdette family episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition will air on Sunday April 24 on ABC.
