"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" Albuquerque, New Mexico Day Four Summary: "There's a House!"

Share Article

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has completed their fourth day on site in Albuquerque, NM. The Martinez family was chosen to be on ABC's hit reality show in an upcoming episode. Filming began on site in the Trumbull section of Albuquerque on 1/16/2008 and the entire project: demolition, clean up, construction, decorating and all will be completed by 1/22/2008 when the family returns from the vacation "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" sent them on to Disneyworld.

Ty Pennington and his team of designers are taking full advantage of the many corporate and community volunteers that have decided to aid them in their attempt to provide the Martinez family with the home of their dreams. The history of the show indicates that they won't be disappointed and the progress on site guarantees that while the Atreus Homes & Communities' resources will be stretched to the limit to accommodate the "extreme" deadlines, the home will be completed on schedule and according to plan.

Day Five of the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" project in Albuquerque, New Mexico is remembered most for the relief felt by all as the flurry of activity in recent days resulted in what is recognizably becoming a house the Martinez family will be able to make into a very comfortable home.
