VIRGINIA BEACH – With a little more than a day left, the crew and volunteers at the Extreme Makeover site in Va. Beach are working to beat the deadline.

Friday morning at 6:15 a.m., crews were putting in the driveway and landscaping at the new home.

The Hill-Burdette family is due home on Saturday afternoon. It's going to be quite a different house home from the one they left a week ago.

Joshua Macias with JEB Development is on the team that’s installing something unique to the family’s needs.

“We helped to work on the whoe salon. There’s actually a nail salon right behind the garage. It’s pretty amazing. There’s going to be custom tile all throughout, electrical, plumbing, a nail bath. It’s pretty cool to see the design that was put into it as well as a powder room, the bathrooms downstairs,” he said.

The show is putting out the call for help in the final hours to make sure the home is complete.

"We are putting the finishing touches on the construction of the house and are getting ready to hand the keys over to the design team later on this afternoon," said marketing coordinator Sarah Strid.

If you can donate your time and talent, bring your tools and check in at the Home Makeover tent at Lynnhaven Mall.

The areas of need are:
Jack-of-all trades
Tile
Trim
Cabinet installers
Painters
Electricians
Plumbers
