The Extreme Team is off to visit Beverly Hill--the woman, not the town. Beverly and her hubby, Fred Burdette, live in Virginia Beach, Virginia with six adopted kids. In addition to changing the lives of her six children, Beverly also cooks meals for the homeless. It's time for this giving family to get something back in the form of a brand new home. Know anyone who might be able to help? We do!

Ty and the team surprise Beverly and her family during a church assembly. Can you say "Halleluiah?!" The Hill-Burdette home is pretty darn small. Beverly and Fred are basically sleeping in a garage so that the girls can have bedrooms. They make about 75 meals for the homeless in a teeny-tiny kitchen. They store the food in the laundry room. Johnny, Ed, Xzibit and Paige get the lowdown on the kids and their stories. Everyone's tale is about to take a drastic turn for the better.

Builder Duane Cotton leads his Trademark Construction team of volunteers up to the old home. Now with a name like Beverly Hill, Ty can only think of one place to send this lady and her family: Philadelphia! Of course, we're kidding. The entire family is off to Rodeo Drive while a convoy of big-rig trucks rolls into Virginia Beach to take down the old house. Woo-woo!

Ty wants the design team to give Beverly a real nail salon. Paige takes the lead on this particular project by jetting off to Beverly Hills to do some research. While there, she treats the family to a spa day. Even Fred gets a fancy pedicure that will surely be the talk of all his trucker buddies next time he hits the road.

Fred has had to share a bathroom with seven women, so Ty wants him to have a commode of his own. As for Paige, she returns from Beverly Hills with a couple of lions. Actually, they are heavy lion statutes that John Littlefield wants to uses as bookends for shelves to hold all the nail polish. That'll work!

Johnny, Ed and Xzibit team with Old Dominion University for a massive food drive. About 8,000 students help relay a video message to the family that they've collected 406,000 pounds of food. That works out to 313,000 meals for needy individuals. CVS also donated $50,000 to be given to local food banks in Beverly's name. The family returns from their vacation. You know what that means. Time to MOVE THAT BUS!

Here's a breakdown of the new digs:
• The multilevel exterior gives Beverly an overwhelming sense of warmth.
• The interior is beyond spacious. Beverly used to cook 75 meals in the old kitchen. It looks like she could fit 75 people in the new one. There's a brand new six-burner stove that she will put to good use.
• Café Kenisha is a bedroom with gobs of cooking-themed décor that's perfect for a future chef.
• Samantha and Shea's room features a long desk with two chairs between the beds. The walk-in closet is huge. Shea can't believe that Ed, who happens to be a man, did such a good job on a girl's room.
• Shannell's room is a high-tech dream. There's binary code on the walls and schematics on the ceiling and floor.
• Xzibit created a little dance studio in Kayla and Chy'na's room. Time to wake the neighbors!
• Ty went to town on the master bedroom. The honeycomb design of the headboard is such a sweet sight. It matches the honeycomb picture frames featuring photos of all the girls.
• We won't go into details about Fred's new bathroom. Let's just say it's all for him. He also likes the reclining chair in there so he can enjoy his new big screen TV.
• Beverly's new Beverly Hills Nail Salon features those lion statues holding up a glass shelf. Beverly knows this is symbolic of the strong, powerful person she is inside. Roar on, Beverly!
• CVS Pharmacy provided the ultimate pantry filled with everything the family needs to continue to provide clothes, blankets, shoes and sleeping bags for the homeless.

Beverly is overwhelmed by all the love that went into the house. It's a well-deserved reward for these selfless folks who do so much for others. Welcome home, Hill-Burdette family. Welcome home.
