Storyline

A family that has faced hardship has their dilapidated house completely rebuilt while they are away on vacation for a week. While early episodes renovated houses, the usual approach is to tear down the house on the first day and build a brand new, usually much larger, one, fully furnished. The houses are customized to the families, with rooms reflecting the interests of, especially, the children, and special technology for any unusual medical conditions. Host Ty Pennington usually has a "secret" project which is only revealed when the family sees it. The construction is accomplished with the help of a large army of blue-shirted volunteers and a wide array of sponsor-donated products and services. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Extreme Makeover Home Edition
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow! What an amazing show. I never knew a show where everyone had such great hearts! This show not only has amazing families every week but the design team and crew just keep on working no matter what conditions there under. I also must admit that I really like their spin off series as well to give viewers a behind the scenes look at what they didn't see the night before it's on this show where you can also see the kindness of everyone on it. Way to go ABC you've really hit a Home Run with this show keep it up you're doing a great job so far! I hope that you guys keep it around for a while and I'm sure that in the future they'll still be watching this Wonderful show!
