Episode Recap

With the majority if the house completed, all that remains are the finishing touches. Kitchen cabinets go in, lighting fixtures go up, walls are painted, etc. Even with time as short as it is, Mike obsesses over details and finish.

Dozens of volunteers arrive to plant flowers, shrubs and cacti in the yard. Damon and Mike Jr carry the appliances into the house. Rusty goes to her truck - and makes a discovery that brings tears of joy. For all of her hard work and for volunteering her time to this project, the crew rewarded her by letting her keep a significant collection of DeWalt power tools which she would never be able to afford to buy herself.

Gloria and her grandkids pull up. Mike shows them their house as the team looks on. This is what it's been about all along. Welcome back home, Gloria. As Hurricane Gustav's winds pick up, Mike and his team drive away. Gustav, a major storm, will blow through, leaving Gloria's home undamaged.

Later, Mike returns to admire his team's work, the Make It Right Foundation's first house. They step down the porch, and walk down a street that is showing signs of becoming a neighborhood again.
