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>

The Best Show on TV...
5 December 2004 | by Two1980See all my reviews

If you do not like this show, you do not like TV. What a wonderful, wonderful show.

I've watched it since it started and it keeps on getting better.

There are two things i love about this show.

Number one, everybody is there for one purpose, and that's the family. Ty Pennington to just about everyone, wants the best for the family that they are doing.

Number two, the Sears commercial they do that says, "Welcome Home". What a wonderful 30 seconds or so.

Nice going ABC and Sears. Watch it, your gonna get hooked.
