- LAST FRIDAY WE MET THE STEVENSON FAMILY

FROM OUTSIDE OF WASHINGTON, D.C.

ALEX IS A LIEUTENANT COLONEL IN THE ARMY

AND A PURPLE HEART RECIPIENT.

HE AND HIS WIFE HEATHER HAVE THREE KIDS,

AND THEIR DREAM HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO FIX UP THEIR HOME,

AND WE WANTED TO HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

HI, JEANNIE, JOHN, ANTHONY, HI.

- HI, ELLEN.

- HEY, HOW ARE YOU? - HEY, ELLEN.

- WE GOT A FEW PEOPLE HERE WITH US, ELLEN.

[people cheering]

- I SEE THAT.

AND I'VE ACTUALLY--

LOOK AT THAT HOUSE,

IT LOOKS AMAZING.

THIS IS GONNA MEAN SO MUCH TO THE FAMILY.

[people cheering]

- THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE'RE SO PROUD TO BE A PART OF IT, ELLEN.

YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE THING TO DO THESE HOUSES

WITH YOU ALL THE TIME,

AND IT'S ONE THING TO DO THEM ON "COUSINS UNDERCOVER,"

BUT WHEN YOU'RE GIVING BACK

TO SOMEBODY WHO'S PROTECTED THIS COUNTRY

TIME AND TIME AGAIN,

IT'S JUST A HUMBLING, HUMBLING EXPERIENCE.

- YEAH, AND ELLEN, WE HAVE HAD--

ALL THE VOLUNTEERS HERE HAVE BEEN WITH US SNOW,

RAIN, AND THEY'RE STILL HERE WITH US

READY FOR THE STEVENSONS.

THEY'RE COMING HOME!

- LET'S SEE WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE.

'CAUSE THEY'RE RIGHT AROUND THE BLOCK, RIGHT?

THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE BEFOREHAND.

- YEAH.

- AND LET'S SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW.

LOOK AT THAT.

[cheers and applause]

AND THAT'S IN, LIKE, A WEEK.

ONE WEEK.

THEY'RE GONNA BE BLOWN AWAY.

[people cheering]

- COME ON OUT, YOU GUYS!

- THEY'VE BEEN IN A HOTEL,

SO THEY HAVE NO IDEA.

- WHAT DO YOU THINK? - HI, HEATHER.

- OH, MY GOSH.

- HI, ALEX.

- HI, ELLEN.

- HI. - HI.

- LOOK AT--

DON'T LOOK AT ME. LOOK AT THE HOUSE.

[people cheering]

- HEY, GUYS. HOW ARE YOU?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- THIS IS AWESOME. OH, MY GOD.

- I COULD NEVER EVEN IMAGINE IT COULD LOOK LIKE THIS.

- TELL THEM WHAT YOU DID INSIDE, ANTHONY AND JOHN.

- SO WE OBVIOUSLY DID THE EXTERIOR.

- RIGHT.

- BUT WE DID THE ENTIRE INTERIOR OF THE HOUSE AS WELL.

WE HAD TO GET RID OF THAT BIG BLUE TENT FOR YOU.

WE GOT A NICE CAR PORT.

- YES!

- WE WENT REALLY MODERN, CONTEMPORARY OUT HERE.

- BEAUTIFUL. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

- IT LOOKS GREAT.

WAIT TILL YOU SEE INSIDE.

WE'RE GONNA TAKE A BREAK.

WHEN WE COME BACK,

WE'RE GONNA REVEAL WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE INSIDE.

WE ARE BACK WITH THE COUSINS AND JEANNIE

AND THE STEVENSON FAMILY.

LET'S GO INSIDE AND TAKE A LOOK.

THIS IS SO-- FIRST GO TO THE KITCHEN

BECAUSE--

- OKAY, HERE WE GO, GUYS.

- LET'S LOOK AT WHAT THE KITCHEN LOOKED LIKE BEFORE

AS THEY'RE WALKING IN.

WE'LL LOOK AT A BEFORE PICTURE.

- ALL RIGHT, GUYS, SO YOU CAN SEE

YOUR BRAND-NEW KITCHEN.

FIRST THING'S FIRST,

THAT HUGE ISLAND THAT TOOK UP SO MUCH SPACE,

IT'S GONE.

YOU HAVE ALL-NEW CABINETS,

WHITE CARRARA MARBLE COUNTERTOPS.

BUILT-IN BENCH FOR YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY.

- THAT'S REALLY NICE.

WE HAVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR EVERYBODY TO SIT NOW.

- THAT WAS THE BIGGEST THING.

WE WANTED MORE ROOM HERE.

AND NOW WE GOT TO SHOW YOU, ELLEN--

LET'S SEE THAT LIVING ROOM.

- LET'S LOOK AT THE LIVING ROOM BEFOREHAND.

- OH, WOW.

- I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS MY HOUSE.

- LOOK AT IT.

- OH. - AW!

- WAS THE TV TRYING TO GET AWAY?

WHY WAS IT--

ALL RIGHT, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT NOW.

- ALL RIGHT, GUYS.

SO NOW...

- LOOK AT THAT.

[applause]

BEAUTIFUL.

- WE WANTED YOU GUYS TO HAVE ENOUGH SPACE

FOR THE KIDS, RELAX.

YOU GUYS HAD THAT BIG WOOD FIREPLACE THAT PROJECTED OUT.

- IT WAS--OH, YOU GUYS, IT'S PRETTY.

- NOW YOU HAVE BRAND-NEW GAS FIREPLACE,

PLENTY OF ROOM.

- YES.

- SO NOW YOU, GUYS--

YEAH, IT GOES ALL THE WAY UP TO THE CEILING.

- THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE THAT.

- CHANDELIERS.

LOOK AT ALL THE CHANDELIERS ABOVE US.

- THAT'S WHAT THIS NEEDED,

WAS LIGHT, YOU GUYS.

- AND NOW-- AND ELLEN,

I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS.

ELLEN, LOOK AT THESE DOORS THAT WE MADE FOR THEM.

- I KNOW. THAT'S VERY COOL.

I NOTICED THOSE EARLIER.

- BEAUTIFUL WOOD DOORS THAT LEAD INTO THE MASTER SUITE.

- ALL RIGHT, LET'S SEE WHAT THE BEDROOM LOOKED LIKE BEFORE.

- WE DID MOVE THE DOOR FOR YOU.

ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

SO THERE NO LONGER IS THE ENTRANCE

TO YOUR BEDROOM OVER AT THE ENTRY OF THE HOUSE.

WE DID A CUSTOM HEADBOARD

AND A RECLAIMED WOOD JUST LIKE THE DOORS.

- LOOK AT THAT.

- AND THEN WE BUILT YOU A CUSTOM BED.

AND THEN WE WENT IN

AND WE DID A CUSTOM BATH,

EXTRA SPRAYERS.

WE DID FULL SHOWER. WE DID A VANITY.

- [squealing]

- YES, WE DID.

- THIS IS SO PRETTY.

- YOU GUYS DID SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOB.

- I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID ALL THIS

IN SO LITTLE OF A TIME.

- I KNOW, I'M GONNA TALK TO MY CONTRACTORS AFTER THIS.

THIS IS REALLY IMPRESSIVE.

HEATHER, ALEX, LET'S BRING THE KIDS IN.

- WELL, LISTEN, WE DO WANT YOU TO KNOW

BEFORE WE GO--OH, YEAH, LET'S GRAB THE KIDS.

- OH, YEAH, LET'S GO GRAB THE KIDDOS.

LET'S GO SHOW THEM THE NEW HOUSE.

- THEY'RE STILL IN THE CAR, PROBABLY.

- COME HERE.

YEAH, IT'S TOO COLD.

LET'S GRAB THE KIDS OUT HERE.

- WHILE WE'RE WAITING FOR THE KIDS,

WE WANT YOU GUYS TO KNOW

YOU GUYS HAVE SUCH A STRONG COMMUNITY HERE,

IT WAS JUST INCREDIBLE TO SEE EVERYBODY WHO CAME OUT.

- GUYS, GO SEE MOM AND DAD!

YAY!

WOWEE!

- WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS IT PRETTY?

- YEAH.

- YOU GUYS, SAY HI TO ELLEN.

- SAY HI TO ELLEN ON THE CAMERA.

- HI, KIDS.

THAT'S YOUR NEW HOME.

THAT'S SO EXCITED.

WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH, ANTHONY AND JOHN.

THAT ANTHONY AND JOHN DID FOR THE STEVENSON FAMILY.
