This is a list of season 2 episodes of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition series.
When Brian Wofford’s wife passed away four years ago, he dedicated himself to making it possible for his children to pursue their dreams. Today the kids are involved in lots of activities, including playing basketball and volunteering with their church. But playing the role of dad/basketball coach/chauffeur has left Brian little time to run his chiropractic practice. He has had to scale back his work hours to be available to his kids, and now struggles to make ends meet. The house repairs went unattended and, although he may be a master with his hands clinically, he admits that he is “all thumbs” when it comes to making home improvements. With the girls sharing a room where their beds are stacked on top of each other and the boys living in the partially converted garage/laundry room, adding more space to the house was a priority for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team.
While the design team, contractors and over 150 workers transformed the Wofford house into a dream home in just seven days, Brian and his family -- Peter, 17, Rebekah, 16, 14-year-old twins Lizzie and Luke, Anna, 12, Aaron, 10, Esther, eight, and Elijah, six -- went on vacation to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, staying at the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort and Spa.
The finished house was built by a commercial builder who goes to church with the Woffords. He had never built a residence before, only commercial buildings.
In addition to the thousands of well-wishers who welcomed the Woffords to their new home, U.S. Marines from nearby Camp Pendleton came by to give a helping hand.
