Makeover family from Minot visits the Grommesh home

Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - There is light at the end of the tunnel for the crews on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build in south Moorhead. It is night 5 of the 7 day project and there is no let up on the Grommesh's new home.

There was a special visit to the Grommesh home tonight. The Blivens, another Makeover family, came from Minot. Bill, Michelle, and their 18-year old son Aaron arrived to the site around 5:15 tonight. 4-years ago, they had a home built for them. Aaron has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair.

Heritage Homes helped with that build, so the Blivens wanted to show their support, be part of the excitement, and help with this makeover.

“Their life will never be the same. It's an incredible experience and I can tell you that our lives are so much easier now trying to get Aaron around and it's incredible. It's a dream. You just can't describe it. The only thing I can say to the family is remember all this. It happens so fast that you look back and wish I would have taken pictures of that, wish I would have taken pictures of that.”

The Blivens hope to finally meet the Grommeshes and see the big reveal Sunday.
