Big New House For Little Hailey on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (VIDEO)

'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' - 'The Korpai Family'This week, Ty Pennington and the 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC) took on a task very close to the heart for Amy and Matt Roloff ('Little People Big World'). The Korpai family have a five-year old daughter, Hailey, with dwarfism, but their house is hardly suitable for her needs.

The Roloffs undertook a similar renovation on their farm to make the kitchen and other areas of the house more user-friendly for little people. So the design team stopped by Roloff farms for some inspiration, and invited Matt back to help with the build. Bill Klein and Jen Arnold ('The Little Couple') got involved as well, as this was more than just a rebuild of a house.

Parents Jimmy and Darlene are so committed to the cause that they run the New York chapter of Little People of America from their home. Considering it was barely suitable for Hailey, it certainly wasn't suited for many of the other people who came through, some with limited mobility.

So the build created two separate spaces. Hailey and her family have a home that's multi-functional for both little people and people of average height, while they have a new separate building for their work with the LPA.

wonderful features in new home. It seems too big house which some families can not afford to pay home bills.
If that family can afford paying house expenses and bill, it is fantastic and open home!
