The excitement began yesterday in Middleburg, Florida, where Extreme Makeover Home Edition surprised the Prewitt Brewer family with the news that they would be the latest recipients of a home makeover courtesy of Ty Pennington, the design team, and ABC. Read on for a sneak peek…
Beginning Wednesday, January 26, the Extreme Makeover Home Edition team stepped in to build a new, structurally-sound home in just seven days for a volleyball coach and her younger sisters in Middleburg, Florida.
Carrie Prewitt has spent the last 25 years being more than just a high school volleyball coach – she has also given back to her community by serving as a mentor, counselor, confidante, and sometimes as a ‘mom’ stand-in for her students. But Carrie began playing the ‘mom’ role quite literally two years when she took in student Ashley Brewer and her two sisters, Gina and Taylor.
Unfortunately, Carrie’s house is crumbling and has inadequate space to accommodate all four of them. In spite of the challenges, the ‘Brewitts’, as they jokingly refer to themselves, have made an effort to make their home fun to live in.
Carrie acted immediately upon hearing that Ashley, Taylor, and Gina’s parents had passed away – she became their permanent guardian and provided them with a home life in the wake of their loss. Carrie continues to coach the high school volleyball team, several school club teams, and runs volleyball camps for girls. She treats all of her players like daughters, and even runs a weekly league with proceeds going to help those who can’t afford supplies or camps.
The Prewitt Brewer family were sent on vacation to the Virgin Islands while their new home is built. Ty Pennington will be joined by Tracy Hutson, Jillian Harris, Michael Moloney, local builders Ark Remodeling and Construction, J.A. Long Design Builders, and of course eager community volunteers on the project.
