'Extreme Makeover' coming to Buffalo next month
By Stephen T. Watson
ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" reality TV series is coming to Buffalo next month for the first time.
The show has selected David Homes to design and build an environmentally friendly home for a deserving family somewhere in the City of Buffalo, David Stapleton, the president of David Homes, announced today.
The identity of the lucky family will be revealed Nov. 7, the same day that David Homes will begin construction on the home.
David Homes is donating its employees' labor as well as some building materials and other resources.
David Homes and Western New York AmeriCorps will coordinate the subcontractors and other small businesses, skilled laborers and members of the public who are expected to volunteer their services for the construction project.
Work on the house will take one week and will be featured on a later episode of "Home Edition."
