Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover crew are in Gainesville demolishing and then rebuilding a new house for a worthy family – in just 106 hours!

Crews have been working around the clock since Ty surprised the family by knocking on their door on Monday. The family was sent to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to vacation while construction is taking place and will be back in Gainesville to see their new house next Monday. The crowd will be yelling “Move that bus!”, and the finished project will be revealed.

It’s quite an undertaking, but there is an army of local sponsors and volunteers to help with donations of labor, equipment and building materials. A canned food and blood drive are also occuring in conjunction with this event.

Grandiflora is donating a large number of plants for the landscaping, including all the annual color. Ellen and Alan will be down there planting on Sunday morning, starting at 6 a.m. Hopefully, they will see Ty and perhaps get his autograph.
