Earlier yesterday, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” traveled to Smithville, Texas to surprise a family with the door knock that can change lives. “EM:HE” host Ty Pennington and the team of designers surprised the Zdroj family. When the largest wild fire in Texas history hit the area, many homes, including the Zdroj family’s, went up in flames.
It was fitting that the Zdroj family settled on a property next to The Heart of Pines Volunteer Fire Department. Mizzy Zdroj had long dreamed of being a firefighter just like her hero, her grandfather. The family practically lived off of the land, growing their own food and trying to live a “green” lifestyle. Mizzy kept a small art studio in a camper on the property. She made money by selling the dolls she crafted by hand.
