Clancy Moving Systems and dozens of other local businesses recently participated in the TV show, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” which remodels a home for a deserving family in just 7 days through donations and teamwork.
It is an “Extreme” transformation viewers watching the show Sundays at 8/7 central time on ABC get to see. By the time the show host Ty Pennington shouts, “Move that bus!!!!” to reveal the home’s new look to the family, you may just be in tears too.
In the past season 8, a new home was brought to a man, his wife and four children after a car accident left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. Later in the same season, an episode featured the creation of a safe haven for a 9 year old boy with brittle bone disease.
The episode our team participated in was for the Korpai family in Orange County, NY. Hailey Korpai is the reason the home was built. She is 5 years old and has a form of dwarfism. This new home is designed to help her with everyday tasks. Our role was providing some muscle to help move the family quickly as well as provide temporary storage with our trailers.
That’s all we can say until the show airs! The season premier was Sunday, September 25 at 7|6c. The show our team participated in will air Sunday, October 16!
The Record-Online wrote a short article about the show during the build and the in the latest news post-build, the Korpai family gave thanks to all for their new home. Those are the only other, “inside” details you may see published until air date. The ABC EMHE staff has a tight watch on what is revealed prior to the show reaches TV…no spoilers allowed.
Until then… all the best to Miss Hailey and the Korpai family! We hope you enjoy your new home while we wait to see the full transformation on TV!
