LAKEVIEW, CATOOSA COUNTY, GA. (WRCB)-- After week of anticipation, the Sharrock family is in their new home!
Patrick and his parents arrived in a stretch limo to hundreds, maybe thousands, of spectators here on-site to welcome them home.
Patrick was of course a fan favorite and could pep-up the crowd on command!
After a few minutes, the "move that bus" chant began and off it went to reveal the beautiful 3,000 square-foot home.
It was an emotional scene for everyone on-site. Some were crying, and some were cheering on the family.
Following the reveal, Patrick walked up to doorway and the family got their first glimpse of the inside, which is where they are now.
Before the family arrived home, the announcement was made that enough money was raised to pay off the Sharrock's mortgage, cover a UTC scholarship, and still have some leftover for the family.

LAKEVIEW, CATOOSA COUNTY, GA. (WRCB)-- The big day is finally here! In a few hours the Sharrock family will arrive to a new home!
Construction of the home is in the "home-stretch" as volunteers and build crews add the final touches.
Spectators began arriving to the site at around 6:00 am and continue to file in. The Executive Producer of the show tells Channel 3 the reveal is now pushed back to around 3:30 p.m.
Police will be setting up barricades along McBrien/Page Road to close a portion of it in preparation for a heavy turnout. The Lake Winnie parking lot is full.
Spectators are asked to not bring chairs due to space.
