Okay, not quite yet....but, the Extreme Makeover crew with Ty Pennington is in town to build a house for a well deserving family and my wife and I took the opportunity to serve together on the project. We were actually the very first volunteer group. There were 20-25 of us, and it was all very secretive and hush hush so they could surprise the family. We were told to check our email at a certain time and be ready to spring into action. And we were. The weather was great and we had a lot of fun.
Behind us is where they are digging the basement for the house. The recipient is Carl Hall, a former WSU baseball player who was paralyzed from the neck down last summer in a car accident. He has a wife and 4 kids and from what I hear he's a great guy. Our work was mostly prep work for all the other volunteers. We set up the barricade fencing for the spectators, built flooring in the catering, volunteer, and VIP tents, and basically did whatever set up was needed. They expect to have the house finished next weekend. We are going to try to volunteer again and be there for the "reveal day."
