One Day 'til "Extreme"

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in Southern Oregon.

Tomorrow (Friday) our 30-minutes special and the two-hour ABC program will air.
Very exciting for a lot reasons.

Yesterday, I posted a link to all of the reports we had covering the "Extreme" build. Today, I'll post a couple of my favorites.

Quick recap of what happens. A lucky and deserving family is nominated and selected to recieve a beautiful, new home. Local companies and builders volunteer time and supplies to do it all in 130 hours. The family is whisked away to a lovely vacation where they have no idea about what's going on. The cameras get in place, Ty Pennington talks with the family, The Bus pulls away and the family sees their home for the first time.
We cut into our normal programming to carry The Reveal live on the air. I was the lucky one who was able to be live on scene, narrating the moment for everyone at home.

A look at the work about two days into the five and a half day build.

It was a stellar experience for a lot of reasons. More on that tomorrow.
Set you DVRs: ABC, Friday, 8-10p. You won't regret it.
