Extreme Makeover Home Edition Comes to Town!

Blu Shields Construction has been invited to join “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to build a home for one deserving family in the Bay Area of Houston, TX.
The home was completed in 106 hours by a team of vendors and volunteers lead by Blu Shields Construction, and was designed to fit the needs of the Beach family.

The Family

In 23 years of marriage, Larry, 40 and Melissa, 40; have fostered over 85 children that other adoption agencies were not able to place. They have four biological children and nine adopted children. They include Chris (23,), Michael (21), Jose (20), Mikala (18), Paul (14), Faith (13), Hope (9), Justin (8), Jacob (4), Grace (4), Jeremiah (23 months), Mercy (22 months) and Cody (19) currently serving in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan. During the last 12 years, they have fostered approximately 85 children, but decided to start adopting after seeing that so many were not being placed in homes.

Due to water damage from Hurricane Ike, the Beach family home is unlivable and they are residing in a travel trailer on their property. Therefore, they have been unable to adopt additional children. But all that changed one week ago today when they were surprised with an Extreme Makeover!!

Their New Home

All 6,300 square feet of it!!

The largest home Extreme Home has ever built & still in only ONE week... Amazing!!

The episode is scheduled to air either March 21st or March 28th and will be a
2-hour special!

I cannot think of a more deserving family... May God continue to bless The Beach Family and the lives that they've touched!!

Tiphany-- do you remember Crystal McCahon? Her and her husband own and operate All About Plumbing and they provided the plumbing on this house. What a small world! :)
