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>

Truly Amazing Show and Fantastic Team
6 October 2005 | by rj-99See all my reviews

My Wife and I watch Extreme makeover in the UK all the time. Our hearts go out to all the families who have been helped.

The story of one family in particular who unfortunately lost their home in a fire touched us very deeply.

Ty and the Team are a great bunch of people. Their help to humanity and those who are in need goes far beyond anything you could imagine. The producers of the show and everyone who helps in the making are miracle workers.

We wish you all good health and long life and may you all live as long as you want and never want as long as you live. You all truly deserve it.

G-D Bless You All.

Kindest and Warmest Wishes,

The Raymond Family.
