Episode 16The Harris Family
When Diamond Harris was pregnant, she was put on bed-rest and had to leave her nursing job. Husband Chris’s salary as a third-grade teacher wasn’t sufficient to cover their expenses, and soon they found their home in foreclosure. Fortunately their wonderful neighbors rallied around them and raised enough money to stop the bank proceedings. But the 2000-sq. ft., three-bedroom house was in desperate need of repair, and matters were made worse when Hurricane Ivan sent a tree crashing through the living room, which had become the children’s playroom.
Because there were so many children in the family, design team leader Ty Pennington thought some “child experts” should be brought in to help. The Muppets themselves heeded his call, along with Florence Henderson – "Mrs. Brady" herself!
