In 2006 The Duggars constructed a large house for the whole family to live in. Most part of furniture and appliances was donated by Discovery Networks and numerous sponsors.


Josh Duggar became a center of the scandal that provoked an urgent wrap up of 19 Kids and Counting on the channel. The viewers expect that Jill and Jessa: Counting On will share new info on the scandal provoked by Josh.
