For the Mother’s Day edition of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Ty Pennington and the design team are headed to Middleburg, Florida to surprise the Prewitt-Brewer family. Carrie Prewitt is a high school volleyball teacher who was not able to have children of her own. She mothers all of her players, and ultimately took in Ashley Brewer and her two sisters, Gina and Taylor after their parents died of drug overdoses and they wound up in foster care. Unfortunately, Carrie’s home is crumbling around them, and has insufficient space to accommodate the four of them. Keep reading for all of the highlights from their home makeover…
Ty and the Extreme Makeover Home Edition design team show up at the high school library to surprise the Brewer girls. They take them to find Carrie in the gym. Ty shouts, “Happy Mother’s Day!” Carrie hugs her sobbing girls. They travel to the family home, where Carrie takes Ty on a tour. She shows off a necklace with three heart charms on it that the girls gave her. Jillian and Tracy chat with Gina and Taylor about their room. Michael checks out the lot. Ashley, Gina, and Taylor talk to Ty about their terrible experiences with their drug addicted parents.
Carrie and the girls meet the team from Ark Builders and see all the volunteers before heading to vacation in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Ty really wants to get in touch with the power of moms this week. He says Tracy is already a mom, and brings out Jillian and Michael’s moms to help! Ty contacts the Prewitt-Brewer family to watch the ‘volleyball’ demolition of their old home. Balls are spiked through windows, and they shoot volleyballs into the siding like cannonballs. from a pumpkin blaster!
The new house is up by day three, and Michael shows off a hanging bed for a ‘resort’ feel in Ashley’s room. Jillian is doing a Great Barrier Reef theme for Gina’s room. Michael goes to the high school and thrills Carrie’s volleyball team by introducing their substitute coach – Misty May Treaynor, two-time gold medalist.
Back at the site, Taylor is getting a Hawaiian room thanks to Tracy. Misty May comes over to help design a beach volleyball court. Ty works on a keepsake using the heart charm theme. He is doing Carrie’s master bedroom. When the sand arrives for the court, Michael is scolded by his mom for playing in it.
Ty visits the high school gym, which is full of screaming students. He contacts Carrie to hear their messages of thanks, and what she means to them. Tracy says they created a scholarship fund in her name to honor the work she’s done there. Ty tells Carrie that her three girls will get ‘full ride’ scholarships from North Florida.
Carrie and the girls go back to their vacation, but soon get another call from Ty. They turn to see Carrie’s mom arriving on a jet ski! Back at the house, the volleyball court is finished, and the furniture is brought inside.
Finally, the Prewitt-Brewers arrive in their limo. The crowd shouts to ‘move that bus’, and the new house is revealed! Carrie and her girls hug and cry. They thank the builders and head inside. They are awed by the spaciousness and resort-style decor. A flat screen TV brings up a feed of Carrie’s brother and his family.
They are shown their spa room, and then Gina gets to check out her Great Barrier Reef room – TVs in the floor show the reef itself. Taylor loves her tiki hut room which is complete with hanging lanterns on the bed. Ashley’s room is full of rich colors and features the hanging bed.
Carrie’s master bedroom and bath resembles a soothing spa. She admires the keepsake box made for her by Ty. Next, it’s time to check out the new backyard. The entire volleyball team is waiting on the court, and Misty May drives up in their new Ford Explorer. Ty welcomes them home.
