Extreme Makeover Home Addition in Michigan

A star is born- well almost.
More on that later.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition came to Michigan last week and they built a fabulous house.

This deserving family lost their father and husband to the dreadful Hep-C virus. He unfortunately contracted it while working as a nurse at a local hospital.

My husband's company was one of the contractors on the job and to my daughter's surprise he set it up so she could help build the interior stone wall. Imagine her excitement as she did her hair and picked just the right outfit for her debut. Dani sue had visions of meeting the man- Ty Pennington. Well he was no where to be seen on that day- off on another assignment.

She decided that it was okay that she didn't see Ty when Micheal asked her to be his assistant for the unveiling of the T.V. He told her to hide behind a half wall and pop up when he said the T.V. will appear out of nowhere. She quickly jumped behind the wall and fixed her hair but at the last minute the producer gave her a piece of cardboard to push up instead of her face. She didn't find it very funny as they all laughed at her question-How are they going to see me?

Micheal was sweet and signed her shirt. Then he called her his little T.V. bitch (in an endearing way) and told her to put on her resume that she was his assistant.

Although she didn't become a star or get to meet Ty, she had a good time and it was a very worthy cause.

Sorry Dani Sue but I had to share this- it was just too good to keep to myself :)

  8. Hi Mya, What a great post. I love watching Extreme Makeover. It is nice to watch some feel-good reality shows for a change.

  9. Very cool. They also redid a house in MD. Our builders worked on it. My daughter has a huge crush on Ty.

  10. Instead of purchasing or building a new home, when seeking more living space, many people choose to add-on to their existing homes. Whether you have an expanding family, or just feel like you’ve outgrown your current home, but don’t want to part with it, a home addition may be the solution.
