Extreme Makeover: Moorehead Edition
The Bill and Adair Grommesh family was surprised last week with news their Moorehead home would be replaced as part of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." On Sunday, they set eyes on their brand new house.
The Grommeshes have two children with special needs. Their 10-year-old son, Garrett, was born with spina bifida and must use a wheelchair. 11-year-old daughter Peighton has a pancreatic enzyme deficiency known as Axenfeld-Reiger's syndrome. While they vacationed in the Bahamas, their former house was relocated and a new handicapped-accessible home was built in its place within the span of just 106 hours.
The 5,200-square-foot residence includes three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a two-car garage, an elevator and an indoor pool with a lift for Garrett. Additional details of just what is inside the Grommeshes' new home is a mystery to all but the family, the production crews, and the volunteers. Their old home passed on to another deserving family.
The episode featuring the Grommesh family is expected to air sometime between mid-November and mid-December. "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airs at 7 p.m. on Sundays.
