Word has been received that ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is coming back to Houston.
After previous builds in East Bernard and Kemah, this is the first time the team will build a home for a deserving family in Houston city proper. The location will be announced to the general public soon after the morning “Door Knock” announces it to the winning family.
HHN Homes is the builder, and a whole host of sponsors and partners are involved. There is a call for volunteers, and there will be a pep rally at Houston’s First Baptist Church, Monday, July 19th at 7:00PM.
Hopefully time will permit me to make it to the site (I can’t take the heat nor afford the time off work, so I’ll be on the sidelines) and get some pictures once the build gets underway.
Based on previous experience, the site will have an observation area for the general public to view the progress (as well as the obligitory souvenirs vendor). Due to traffic issues getting into and out of the site, off-site parking and shuttle buses should be provided.
If you’re interested in volunteering or donating to the effort, or would like more information, HHN Homes has set up an informational website, that will likely be updated throughout the build.
You never know, you may just end up on TV.
