K’NEX Brands, the only US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love™, was pleased to donate 400 Lincoln Logs to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Fayetteville project with Blue Ridge Log Cabins to assist the crew, along with special guest Michelle Obama, in a recent renovation project. The renovation, which took place from July 14–20, 2011 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, aimed to help improve The Steps-N-Stages Jubilee House that Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy Veteran, established with her own money to offer shelter, support, and mentoring to homeless female veterans. However, more space and services were needed to continue their work with the women in order to get them back on their feet. Barbara also wanted a better place for her son, who is developmentally delayed, to live and grow up.
To figure out the layout of the new house the crew creatively used the Lincoln Logs to build a model. At the end of the 7 days, they had managed to successfully pull-off the build, and revealed a beautiful house to Barbara so that she can continue to help homeless women veterans. The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition episode that featured this renovation aired on Sunday, September 25th at 7/6c on ABC and is now available online at:
