Ten years ago we were chosen to build a home for a local hero for the TV Show Extreme Makeover Home Edition. The show is returning for 10 episodes on HGTV. We were chosen again to help another local family to build the home for the first episode of the new season. There are a few finalist remaining and the chosen family will be selected on door knock day, July 27th! We will build an entire home in 4 to 7 days start to finish with hundreds of trade partners and thousands of volunteers. All labor and material for the home construction is 100% donated.

Now the fun begins... signing up sponsors, volunteers, and trade partners. Many of you stepped up with donations in the past to help the last family... hoping some will also help with this family. The show should air in January of 2020.

Cool!!! what a great way to give back. We were also involved in doing the HVAC for the Ginyard family in 2005. Until you have experienced the chaos first hand you would never believe it.

I did the same thing back in 2005. I'm a demolition contractor and we demolished a single family home in Martinez California for a family with a very sick child who had an immune deficiency disease so they needed a new home that was germ free. 20 minutes after we started demo, the house was gone and the next contractor was building the new house pad. Very rewarding. Great that your giving back for a second time.
