How cool is this!? Extreme Makeover Home Edition is coming to my town!

By
Mortgage and Lending with Bank of Oregon a division of Willamette Valley Bank

Just heard a news report that the Extreme Home Makeover show is coming to Jackson County, Oregon.  Apparently, there are five families that are being reviewed currently, and in September, one lucky family will be chosen for the show and to get a new home.

Ark Built Construction will be the lead contractor for this project, Extreme Home Makeover's 200th edition!  It's reported that the winning family will be notified on September 7th and the home will be completed on the 13th. 

We're not that big of a town so this is pretty exciting news!

Hi Kathy!  Yes, this is pretty cool stuff!  We're actually having dinner with my folks next week, along with an area contractor that heads up Habitat for Humanity (my dad does volunteer work for Habitat).  Would be so cool if my dad got to be involved with the project.  I'll keep you posted as more news comes out on this.  :)

One of my favorite shows Karen. I expect you to be at the front lines of the crowd of onlookers so I can see you on TV!

Actually, John, I may do some research as to the possibilities of volunteering!  How fun would that be!?

Hi John @SaraMana.....I'm not sure what the selection criteria is.  My mom was on the selection committee for Habitat for Humanity which I know targets lower incomes, but I don't think Extreme necessarilly "focusses" on just low incomes as I've seen where they have helped average folks, with maybe some physical limitations.  Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

Thanks, Andrea!  I'll be sure to update y'all as to the excitement.  Funny...my mom just called moments ago.  We're heading down to their place for some vino on the patio.  I'm hoping my dad will have some info to share.  :)  Stay tuned!
