HAMPTON ROADS -- We will know Sunday just who the lucky family is that will get a  brand new home courtesy Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. 

On Thursday, 13News paid a visit to one of the contractors who will build the heating and air conditioning systems.  Atlantic Air Corp. is located on Newtown Rd near Virginia Beach Blvd.

"One of our suppliers, Lyon Conklin, provided us with an American Standard Gas Pack for downstairs, a heat pump for upstairs.  And we're going to have a Mitsubishi mini split in one of the rooms," said company owner Jeff Morris.

Entercomm Radio has partnered to promote the build.  Stations like 2WD and 94.9 The Point will be broadcasting live from the site next week.

"You know the personal fulfillment for all these men and women who own these businesses who are donating their employees, their cash, their services, their goods... I mean they're just doing it because it's the right thing to do," said Jenna Kehoe.

On 13News Sunday at 6:00 p.m. 13 News will be able to tell you who the family is and just where they live.

"Sometime Sunday, the chosen family will be notified and by 6 p.m. you will be able to tell Hampton Roads the name and the location of the family," said Duane Cotton, project manager.
