Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rescues an award-winning teacher of the year and her family from their crumbling home

Posted:

RICHLAND CENTER (WKOW) -- From ABC:

On July 24, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will be visiting Richland Center, Wisconsin, to rescue the Anders-Beatty family from their crumbling home.  The water damage, peeling roof and nesting critters lend to this home's dreadful appearance and dangerous disrepair.  Ty and his designers will completely restore their home in only seven days, giving the Anders Family the quality of life they deserve.

Rochelle Anders is an excellent first-grade teacher for the past 29 years who received the 2005 Wal-Mart "Teacher of the Year" award from Richland Center.  She has four children, Tess, Reid, Drew, and Tyler, who range from ages 12 to 20.  When their father suddenly died from a heart attack, Rochelle tried to repair their dilapidated home.  Despite her attempts, the roof is peeling apart, the wood siding and ceilings are crumbling, and squirrels, birds, and mice are nesting in the walls.  Inside the house, holes are evident in the ceilings and water damage has stained the walls.  With only a wood furnace to heat the home, the children had to live with relatives this past winter.  It is now up to Ty and his designers to step in and keep the family together, by keeping the house together as well.

While Ty and the designers, local builder Veridian Homes and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Anders-Beatty family will go on vacation to Canada.

The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Eduardo Xol and John Littlefield.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It's executive-produced by Anthony Dominici. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be posted closer to airdate.
