Ozarks Extreme Makeover Day 8: The Reveal

Jeremy Elwood, SBJ ReporterThe wait is over.

The Hampton family has returned from their weeklong vacation in Walt Disney World in Florida and got to see their new home Tuesday evening.

It was an intimate affair – just Chris and Niki Hampton, their six kids, and the TV crew … and the media … and the thousands of people who showed up to help “move that bus” … and “High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale …

But the mob scene in Ash Grove must surely have been worth it for the family that has been through so much change in recent weeks, from the adoption of four nieces and nephews to their selection as ABC’s next deserving family for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

The family and leaders of the team that built the home – Sam and Michelle Clifton of Millstone Custom Homes, Meek’s-The Builder’s Choice, which provided building materials, and all the other business and individual supporters who donated time, money, materials and effort – will get a chance to describe the experience during a news conference this afternoon. Stay tuned for more from that event.

SBJ took video of the build throughout the week. Here’s a time-lapsed compilation of the footage and a look at the finished home:

Note: To answer a question from a reader earlier in the week, it looks like the Hamptons’ episode of “Extreme Makeover” will likely run in mid-October.
