Before Oprah's Wildest Dreams Bus came along, Bernadette's family was crammed in a tiny three-bedroom apartment with one bathroom. They slept three or four to a bed and dealt with the dangers of living in an unsafe neighborhood.

But not anymore! Nate's mission? To transform the house Bernadette chose for her family into a real dream home.

"This is one of my favorite kinds of makeovers because there's nothing," Nate said before beginning renovations. "All I have to do is add everything that's beautiful…this will not be recognizable when I'm done."

Despite some architectural challenges, Nate vowed to find enough space for each family member to have his or her own bed. Nate also planned a total overhaul of the outdated kitchen, a backyard makeover and many more amazing additions.

Finally, after six long months, 30 custom Pella windows, 3,000 feet of Armstrong flooring, 300 perennial flowers, 35 fixtures from Circa Lighting, eight high-tech appliances, three stories of stairs, two top-of-the-line bathrooms and one new roof and a new porch, Bernadette's bungalow was finally ready for the family!

Hundreds of new friends and neighbors lined the streets as the Robinson's limo arrived for the big reveal. Her lifelong dream that was a year in the making finally became a reality!
