Tonight's 'Home Makeover' features Fayetteville house for vets, Obama visit

Bookmark and Share

Tonight's two-hour season premiere of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" tells the story of  Barbara Marshall of Fayetteville, a 15-year Navy veteran who runs the Steps N Stages Jubilee House as a shelter for female veterans.

The home was built in July, and First Lady Michelle Obama even popped in one day to lend a hand. On tonight's show, host Ty Pennington also goes to the White House to meet with Mrs. Obama.

The photos here of Ty at the White House and Ty with Barbara Marshall are courtesy of ABC. Other photos below were provided by Glenn Godfrey of Godfrey Group in Durham. Godfrey Group worked with producers and volunteers to help build the home. They contributed creative design, millwork, graphics, theme props and labor. Godfrey described the experience as, "controlled chaos, much like images of a beehive where workers rush through the hive and often bump into each other before moving on." He said it was an honor to be involved with the cause.

Raleigh company Point Concepts designed an interactive children's room in the home, and donated the labor and materials for the project.

The show airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
