Extreme Makeover Home Edition comes to town!

UPDATE: Click here for date to be aired information:    Update


What a surprise when Dave realized that the home chosen for Extreme Makeover Home Edition is on his mail delivery route on Dubbers Road in Etters, PA! Here is the house:

This would be the *Before* picture.

Dave has been watching the activity going on for a few days now.  The house is located in a tiny clu-de-sac so the neighbor had a whole line of trees removed, probably to fit the big equipment in. (Look at the straw on the ground above). I suspect there will be some pretty landscaping there when the project is done.

Since the area is tight and tiny, a staging area has been set up half a mile away at Redland High School. Possibly workers will park here and get shuttled to the house.

About 1/4 mile away the equipment is being stored on a vacant lot of a golf course.

What Dave heard about the family is that a son is a paraplegic from an accident at a gymnastics class. Dave says the family members are very friendly and wave to him as he delivers their mail.

All the neighbors were offered vouchers to go to hotels for a week since the work goes on 24/7 with bright lights and loud noise! It seems like this is a difficult secret to keep in a small community.

There is still time to sign up to help on a shift:  www.joinextreme.com

The family gets “awakened” Sunday (tomorrow) and construction starts! The final day is Sunday, June 26.

Tune in next week for the final photos after they “Move That Bus!” (Though we have no clue how they are going to even get the bus down this lane and circle, much less dramatically move it!)
