As most of you know, Joe volunteered through his company to work on the plumbing for an Extreme Makeover house that was built here in Louisville a few weeks ago. I’ve written posts detailing his experience and the progress of the home, with exception to the last day when the family came home.
Sorry I’m so behind in posting this. We weren’t able to make it to the reveal, so I was waiting for pictures to be posted by the homebuilder. Even though we weren’t able to see it in person, watching the footage on the news of the family seeing the home, and seeing the house itself completely finished, was wonderful for me and I want to give those of you following along that same “closure”.
If you missed the posts or want to look back at the process, here are some links:
On Thursday (Day 6) the Lampe family was due to arrive home. The reveal was scheduled between 2-5pm. I believe it was closer to 5 that they finally were able to come home and see what had been going on the last week that they were gone.
Here are some pictures from the Elite Homes extreme makeover website of the finishing touches being put on the house…
If you are living somewhere that an Extreme Makeover house is being built, I highly encourage you to volunteer. It is a one-of-a-kind experience. If they ever come back here (and there is already talk of that!), I am planning on going out and getting my own hands dirty this time!
I can’t wait to see this episode! I will definitely let you all know when it is going to air as soon as we find out.
Could you spare two clicks and vote for Dirt and Lace? I'd love you forever!
