The renovations of the home in Etters, PA, chosen for Extreme Makeover Home Edition are just about done so it is time for an update!
Here is the house Before:
And here is the After (almost):
This picture was taken on Saturday before the house was completely finished. The big reveal was Sunday with “MOVE THAT BUS” but as of today (Monday) they are actually still working on the house and yard. So I’ll post another photo next Saturday when it is REALLY done! The family isn’t back in the house yet because the inside isn’t done yet. They will film the walk-through with the family on Tuesday.
Funny story–when Dave delivered the mail on Saturday there was a large crowd of people around the house. Someone shouted, “There’s the mailman” and the cast of thousands began cheering and clapping for Dave. I think they must have been in a silly/rowdy mood.
Then a security guard approached him and asked him if on Monday he could pick up some priority mail he had. So Dave returned today (he wasn’t scheduled to) and picked up the guard’s letters. In thanks the guard gave him a T-shirt that was reserved for the workers!
Some other random info (gossip?) 🙂
— So, you know the part where the limo pulls up with the family? Well they had to do retakes on that because the limo came zooming in too fast.
–The young man is actually a quadraplegic (I said para in my last post) and has no use of his hands. His wheelchair is voice-activated. So the new house is loaded with voice-activated technology, including the fridge.
–They built two structures. The main house isn’t too much larger than the original, but then they built a second “apartment” behind the house for the adult son to live. There are two pools– a therapy pool inside the back house and one in the backyard.
–The family loves to camp but cannot because of the son’s disability so they installed an Airstream permanently in the backyard to get that feeling of camping.
–The show will air
Sunday, September 25. And will be a two-hour special. (UPDATE: The date has been changed to a later time.)
