The Lutz family's new home was completed in just 96 hours after the demolition of their crumbling old house. With the leadership of Alure Home Improvements of East Meadow, donating their time for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, a crew of over 1,000 workers and volunteers built a dream house for the Lutz family.

The brand new house features a bedroom for each sibling instead of the cramped quarters of their old home. There's a light-filled atrium in the house and a pool in the backyard.
