The Knock!

At about 9:00 a.m., ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team arrived on the doorstep of Carol Crawford-Smith's house. Carol and her two sons heard those now-famous words - "Good Morning Crawford-Smith family!!! Carol, Hunter and Garland - get out here!!!" And when she opened the door, there was team leader Ty Pennington with his infamous bullhorn and the rest of the extreme makeover: design team! Carol, who is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, took a short while to come to the door. And when she came out, she said "I'm coming, I'm coming - I just don't move very fast." Seeing Carol struggling with her disability made it very clear how critical and immediate the need for the extreme makeover actually is!

Carol spent the rest of the day with Ty touring her house and pointing out the problems. Surrounding the home, crews prepped the immediate proximity using all intersecting streets, the yards on both sides and across the street, and borrowing bathrooms from much-appreciated neighbors! Monday is expected to be the beginning of demolition. However, local weathermen are predicting 8-10 inches of snow, so that will definitely make the day even more extreme! In the meantime, the Crawford-Smith's will head to California for a much-deserved vacation.
