Extreme Makeover Edition Joplin.


I am very happy and proud and honored to announce that after submitting an application for participation in the Extreme Makeover Home Edition Joplin we have been selected.

I got a call a while back from the project division saying we were selected.,we will be providing 2 roofing crews,2 siding crews and a seamless gutter crew for the build.,


I have known this for a while now as I have posted it on another site.


I like everyone here at Diy and thought it would be cool to share.Our date and time allocations were sent to me today confirming our date and time.


On the 24th it will be roof,siding and gutters in 4 hours.


40 sq. in 4 hours as well as siding and gutters.


Extreme Makeover is building 7 houses in 7 days for Joplin residents directly affected by the May F-5 that slammed Joplin Missouri.We started doing work in Joplin about 3 years prior to the tornado.


Just for a little while if anyone is interested I have about 200+ pix I took while working in Joplin everyday since the storm.I will be posting them in an album on my profile page here on Diy.

I will begin loading them tommorow in my album.

I have a friend who did the electrical work for one of their shows. Said it was a little ridiculous what they wanted done, but was kinda neat.

Myself, I hate the show. They call it home makeover, but all they do is tear down a house and put up a new one that the homeowner can't even afford the taxes and insurance on. Being the location, it probably was half down when they started. Now they can come and "save" another family.

Congrats though.

40 sq. of roof, siding and gutters in 4 hrs, that will be fun to watch.

I usually don’t watch those shows but I won’t miss this one. Be sure to post the air date.

That’s got to be a lot of lanyards, don’t let the crew get tied up in one big knot.

Good luck.

Well it is now underway.,.,A bit nervous.We will also be renovating a historical shelter in one of Joplin's parks.

I received a letter from ABC Television Networks explain that when we start our build we cannot under circumstance talk about the story line or which family was selected until the show airs.

I have never been so pleased and so proud of my crews as I am today.We met our deadline and even took on another very demanding project for the Extreme team which helps the entire town of Joplin. I am so happy we could contribute to Extreme Makeover.I had 1 person taking pix and rolling video.We have 500 plus pix and about 2 hours of video.My guys and gals stepped up.I owe it all to them.What a great team.
