Navajo family celebrates 'Makeover' home
A Navajo family from Arizona was shown their new home, courtesy of the ABC television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

The show built the home for Garrett Yazzie and his family. Garrett, a high school senior, caught the eye of producers for building a solar power heater for the run-down trailer home the Yazzies were living in.

The home consists of two hogans connected by a living room area. Garrett and his mother and siblings will live in one hogan and his sister's family will live in the other.

The episode featuring the Yazzies will air sometime this fall.
