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>

I love this show!
25 January 2005 | by dancegurl_canadaSee all my reviews

I watch this show for three reasons.

1) All the crew loves the families and really want to help them. Which is totally cool, because I believe all the families deserve it.

2) I love watching the house transform and I love seeing the families faces when they come home to a brand new house.

3) Ty takes off his shirt in a lot of episodes. How could you not want to see Ty without a shirt on? (unless your a guy of course) Also, if you like this show you should watch the new one called "Extreme Makeover Home Edition: How'd They Do That?" they show a lot of stuff that the original one didn't. It's really cool!
