John Tugwell, a former Vietnam veteran who presently works for the U.S. Postal Service, and his wife, Susan -- a fourth grade school teacher and avid reader who loves design and architecture from the grand style of the Italian Renaissance -- have been married for 28 years. They currently live in Long Beach, California. One night, as their daughter, Abbey, 25, was preparing to put her 11-week-old daughter Jamie to bed, she looked out the window and saw an SUV speeding toward the front of her parents' house, where she was living. She jumped from the room into the hallway, just as the drunk driver's speeding vehicle came crashing into the front door! Fortunately the baby wasn't harmed, but the impact left pieces of the house all through the now uninhabitable home. The Tugwell family became displaced, but Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to the rescue and now this family has been reunited in a newly transformed home.
