SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Thursday is the big day for the Simpson family. They will get to see their new home for the first time.

The Extreme Makeover crew and hundreds of volunteers were hard at work all week long to finish the house in time.

On Thursday morning, construction crews were still on site putting the final touches to the exterior of the home. Volunteers were painting the patio, laying grass in the yard and prepping the pool.

Inside, designers were selecting the perfect furniture and decoration to match each room.They still have a to do, but volunteers say they will get it done just in time for the big reveal.

Some people camped out overnight to get a front row spot to see the families reaction to the big reveal.

They expect the reveal to happen sometime between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday. Those who would like to be a part of excitement should park at the Coastal Empire Fairgrounds and take the shuttle to the site.
