Raising five kids in a small home is a tough feat, but Brian and Ansara Fifita did it with effortless ease. But, it was their time for a change now. The 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' team gave them a swanky new abode that will be an experience for them and an unforgettable one for sure. 

In a chat with MEA Worldwide, the members of the Fifita family recollected the best moments from their time on the show and beyond. "From the casting process to the day we found out to the reveal day it totally blew us away.  Every moment was monumental an experience we are forever grateful for & will cherish in our hearts," they expressed.

The family is happy to have a house, in which they can all hang out together and be a unit, in every sense of the word. Earlier, that wasn't possible because of the shortage of space. But now, they can cook meals and be together all the time. 

Even amid all the rush of emotions they were feeling for their new home, which they fondly call "heaven on Earth," the family never forgot to count their blessings.  "The first thing we did in our new home was got on our knees & prayed as a family giving thanks for the beautiful home we were blessed with and then we cooked in our new kitchen & ate as a family," they further shared.

What really made their life easy was how much open area they had to spare. It was a far cry in their previous house. "Still a house full of love but even more love because we have more space to just spread out and not feel like we’re on top of each other," they added.

The family spends most of their time in the kitchen, cooking and eating meals together and that has been a staple for them for a while now. This not only binds them firmly as a family but allows enough and more interaction with one another.

Apart from the kitchen, the Fifita family is totally taken by the bunk room because "it feels good now having all of us under the same roof instead of the boys being in the garage and us in the front house."

Clearly, the new home has given the family a new direction, a horde of activities they can indulge themselves in and also, a fresh start.
