Ty and his fabulous designer friends are in town this week to build a home, along with hundreds of blue-shirted volunteers, for a family that lost their home in Hurricane Ike in 2008.
My shadow and I were a tad disappointed that Ty and his fabulous designer buddies were not out and about the site at 11:45ish Monday morning. No worries though, there was PLENTY of work going on without them.
My shadow and I just might have to make a return visit so we can say hi to Ty. And of course, scream, "Bus driver...move that bus!!" with the masses.
The word on the street is that this is going to be the biggest home EHM has ever built*. The family has 13 children, many of whom have special needs.
It was interesting to watch all the hard hats scurry around, the large trucks hauling this and that hither and tither and the imposing crane lift large sections of the wall or roof.
Here I am in front of the action. Please pardon my pack mule-esque-ness with my purse, camera bag and coat draped across ever so delicately.
Along with the shuttle service, they set up a nice spectator area, complete with free water and cookies and port-o-potties (the fancy kind with a sink). (Yes, I am easily impressed.)
*The episode is supposed to air in March and it's for the Beach family who lives in Kemah.
Do you watch Extreme Home Makeover? (Or at least the beginning and the reveal like we do?)
