TV Show Reveals New Home To Petal Couple

Posted: Updated:

PETAL, Miss. -Today marks exactly two months since the Feb. 10 tornado and one Petal family who lost everything from the destructive twister is getting a fresh start.

The HGTV network show, Catastrophe Inc., started rebuilding the house of Jeff and Ashley West on last Thursday. The crew planned to finish the home in five days.

The Petal couple was able to step foot in their new house today for the very first time.

Jeff said there's one word to describe his initial reaction.

"Blown away," he said. "We are completely undeserving of any of this,"

The TV crew said say they've been  working  non-stop, 24/7 to finish within a week. 

"It's a three bedroom house, we redid the kitchen living dining room and the master bedroom," said Breana Leader, producer of Catastrophe Inc.

"We are back home for sure," said Ashlie West.

Local contractor, Brad Baggett said this was the first time he worked on a project like this.

"I had a crew that came in and worked from 7 a.m. until 3 and then another crew that came in after that and worked into the morning," he said. "It's been a world wind."

The couple said they will enjoy every inch of their 1250 square foot home.

"It's colorful its fun, its like it should be on TV,"  said Ashlie. "I just feel so blessed it's everything we could have dreamed and more."

The episode will show details from inside the home when it airs this July on  HGTV.
