Day 4 Extreme Makeover Home edition and we have a house!

Last night when I left there was only this...

Literally 12 hours later and this is what I arrived to see this morning! Amazing hardly scratches the surface.

Do you see who that is perched on the very top of that roof?  Paige.  In high heels.  And- she was running in them all over the roof, filming for the show.

And Paulie?  Was picked up by the FBI.  Yes really.  You see there is another "secret mission" he is on that has to do with something for Garrett.  And Ty? Is in Cleveland till Friday and then due back here.  I have to admit, the builders are very good about getting info. out to the spectators.

The call was going out for roofers with shingle experience to come finish the roof when I left.  And the pool, is going INSIDE the house for Garrett to use for therapy.  The elevator, is still just a rumor, but it would be a pretty wise rumor considering the two stories on the house.  

Stay tuned...

  2. Vicky, I just HAD to pop in here even though Grizzly is in the background yelling "GET OUTTA THAT CHAIR!!" (If you knew the night and day I just put him through you'd understand.)

    I LOVE that you're part of this worthwhile show. Best thing on tv. We try not to miss it and always have a good cry.

    Hey, I think we should nominate Sara. Wouldn't it be FANTASTIC if they could build her an inside/outside house? In other words, a house with all kinds of beautiful views and gardens to look at so the outside felt more in? And a huge skylight so she could look up and see the stars and the clouds? And just think of the physical assistance they could put in and the entertainment that would fully enrich her young life. And with her beautiful voice, maybe they could build her a studio!

    I was just thinking that while you have their ear, maybe you could mention all this to them. It's such a different and unusual situation that maybe they would take it on. SHE SO DESERVES IT!

    LOVE AND MISS YOU! XOXOXOXOXOX

  3. I haven't had a chance to comment on your Extreme Home Makeover posts yet but I have really been enjoying them. Last year some really close friends of mine were on the show: http://abc.go.com/shows/extreme-makeover-home-edition/episode-detail/montgomery-family/315505 But living 8 hours away I didn't get to be a part of it. Thank you for sharing all of the photos and details of the process. It has been awesome to see all of the behind the scenes stuff that I missed out on with my friends' build. :)

  4. I came to leave a silly comment, and Robynn just left me in TEARS. I know other people need things so much more than me, but wow what a fun dream.

  6. I still have not been up close and personal. Can a person just walk over an take a peek? The way it looks over there I though you had to be an FBI agent to get access. I might have to try tonight. It really is cool that this is in our community!!
