It was hard to miss the bright orange sweatshirts in the crowd on the build site Thursday. In bold black lettering four shirts read “Extreme Sister of Adair” and one pint-sized shirt on an adorable little girl read “Extreme Cousin of Peighton and Garrett.” The sisters are alumni of Moorhead High School and proudly sported the official Spuds orange as they promoted their connection to ABC’s current “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” family.
As they waited for their 6 o’clock LIVE shot with WDAY, they watched the progress on their sister’s home. Crews finished installing the 58 energy efficient windows, secured the shingles and moved on to adding the siding. Arlene Roeglin, one of Adair’s sisters, says the design, the coloring and the details are just what her sister and brother-in-law would want in their dream home.
“It’s picture perfect,” says Arlene Roeglin, one of Adair’s sisters. “It’s almost as if they’re in their minds.”
It’s been difficult for the sisters this week, knowing they can’t just pick up the phone and call Adair. They usually stay in contact weekly or daily, and with so much to share about the construction progress, it’s tough to be cut off from communication and tough to be surrounded by so much joy and not be able to share it until Sunday.
The sisters have all heard rumors about what may be in the home and they’ve heard about different special projects. They are anxious to see it all come together.
Most of all they look forward to the dust settling, when Bill and Adair will have time to assess what has changed, especially for Hope Inc.
“That will be the best time for Hope Inc. and the children of hope to reap the benefits,” Roeglin says.
“It’s overwhelming – we’ve been saying that since Sunday. We are very proud of our sister,” says Yvette Krzyzaniak, one of Adair’s sisters.
