I have been watching your show for the last few weeks and that includes the reruns. I enjoy the shows where you help the military families the most. The average American has no ideal what these service members go through, while serviing and when they leave the service. What you do for those family is great. From a veteran (retired U.S. Navy) I thank you so much. Have you ever thought of going back to some of those families to see how they are doing since you have help them? I wish you and all those involed with the show a long and happy life.
my only problem is why does paige have to wear that
tool belt everywhere she goes if shes working on the house no problem but when she goes to sears or some fund raiser or when the house is done and she exits the house get rid of it ...... really just wear when needed and not when it makes you look cute seriously think about it nobody wears a tool belt to sears or a fund raiser just lose the belt great show good people keep it up
I have watched your show for a long time now and not once have I seen you guys use a product called Warm Floors. Warm Floor is a carbon infused plastic that can go under most flooring methods and runs on a 12 volt system. it can be glued, stapled or even nailed through. There is Zero maintenance and I believe it it guaranteed for the life of the house. This is NOT a water heated under floor system so there is no chance of leakage.
The company even has application for out door use so that if there was need of an ice free area say for disabled persons then Warm Floor can be easily used.
I hope to see this product in use for future projects as something that is good for the environment and good for the families.
I am from South Africa and I am aware that we are most probebly many episodes behind but i have watched many episodes of your program and i believe that what you and your team do for all of the families is absoltely amazing.
I originally started watching the program only because i wanted to see the types of ideas i could get to redo my flat but when i saw all the emotions and hard work and care that goes into giving these deserving families homes that accommodate their lifestyles i started becoming emotionally engulfed in the program and in the hearts of the family.
i couldnt help but cry out my eyes out every episode that i watched because it is absoulutely amazing to see how every person is so appreciative of everythig that was done for them. You guys do a great job and i really would love to continue watching your program and you changing and improving others lives.
Too often, the parents room is designed around the family instead of around them. In other words, the bedroom for the parents ought to be a place of solitude. A place for them to get away from the day. This doesn't mean a place to become detached. It is a space for romance, intimacy, and reconnection. To do this, the bedroom needs to have the ambiance and vibe the creates the mood for intimacy and passion. Use of proper colors, decorations, and appropriate pictures. Rarely does this include pictures of their children, which so often is the case in the shows. As a prominent sex and relationship therapist, I can personally tell you that this is a no no. For exmample, the parent's room should be elegant, yet simple (not busy), with use of appropriate colors and lighting. The crew has amazing insight into the design of the entire home...this is just the next level. Dr. Christy Wise
Dear Ty, my name is Sergeant Freddie Peterson of Grambling State University Police Department. Because of what you and your team have done for many families. It has change my life in what I do as a Police Officer. Thank You Ty and the team
I believe that Ty and his team are a blessing from heaven. Ty has changes many pepoles lives for the better. I truly wish that I could take time away from my job to help the team with somebody home. but because of my job I am unable to help, but with my prays to ty and the team Im sure that they will continue to bring smiles to families in need. Because every time i watch the show at the end I feel joy and happinest. Ty and the team thank you from the bottom of my heart, GOD BLESS YOU.
I have watched this show for over two years on various channels. I love how people get help from Ty and his cohorts. I almost applied to travel with the last year. But health and personal reasons prohibited the desire then. I am an emotional kind of guy (lost son to a drunk driver nearly 3 years ago). Episodes that deal with folks in wheelchairs are dear to my heart. The amount of love that goes in to every home by the crew and all the helpers is phenomenal.
So perhaps this year again they'll look for travel companions. So you guys can expect my application if you decide to look for more help.
One of the best episodes was of the Female Police Officer who had been shot and paralyzed. Then of course the Marine who is raising his children as a single Dad.
"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is one of my favorite, if not, top favorite home improvement shows on all of television. Plus, they do it to help people in need who are having hard times paying their bills and putting food on the table. Whether these people may of lost a part of their family, or maybe they just live in a house that's not going to make it much longer, the 'famous' Extreme Makeover bus makes stops to plenty of people that need help. (they've helped over 160 families over the years) The show has a great cast of teammates, led by Ty Pennington, with the help of Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis, Ed Sanders, and Michael Maloney. But of course five people can't do it all. In every episode, they have a supporting cast of hundreds of more workers, including one or two celebrities that appear somewhere along the way in every episode, to help rebuild the families' homes. With all this help, these wonderful houses are built in one week. I agree with some people who say they might go a little too far when it comes to spending money and making houses as fancy as possible, but I think it's to give these less-fortunate families an opportunity to feel like royalty. And thanks to the great fellows from Extreme Makeover, it's pretty easy.
Ty is very nice to help ill and ingured people by building them amazing and wonderful houses and mansions. Half the episode i remember well. I do wish i had the houses sometimes, But i'm happier those people get them. I can't believe they even do it when the people are not ill or ingured, Just when their helpful! A very heart-warming show to know people have ways to help people a little by building nice homes for the people who need them, And trips away when the people are working on the houses is also very nice. I love watching this and i watch it everyday! The idea show for people who love helping others and their family and friends.

Well I and my kids have been going through a extremely hard time since last november and are still going through a very hard time and need help really bad. we just recently got out of 2 womens shelters because of my childrens dad abusing them and trying to kill them and myself, since we got out we have been living from place to place for the past 4 or 5 months its been very hard on us. my son who is 9 has been in 2 phychiatric hospitals also. I recently lost my car too so we are on foot anywhere we have to go now. I have been searching for a job everywhere but so far no luck at all. i have seen your show and know that ya'll are very good about helping family's out and we need help in our lives right now. I can't even get my kids any christmas this year and that breaks my heart too. all we want for christmas is our life back. please please help me and my kids. my e-mail is email@example.com. If anyone out there can help us it would be very much appreciated. thank you Karen Bell
I just want to say how much we appiciate what Ty and his crew have done for all the families they have rebuilt lives for. Some of those families would have never been able to do any of the things that Ty and them have done. So thanks.
Ty and his crew are the most supportive people in most commuities. They help people that have no way of doing things themselves. I just want to give thanks to Ty and all that work with him on every show becuase you don't realize how much you all help people. I have watched almost every episode and everytime I watch it I just want to reach out and help to. I know that there are alot of families out there that struggle with the everyday things and at least some people is looking out for them. Me and my family struggle but not in disable way more financal ways. Some Families Can not even afford to put a good roof over their childs head and that is so sad, becuase they spend all their money taking care of the medical problems.
Ty Pennington, along with his crew of house-fixers, work like God and His angels as they go around, looking for families that need loads of help, one way or another. From making houses larger and safer for kids with disabilities to helping hard-working and poor families sit in castles, these guys host the only television show that makes me cry every episode.
This is one of the only television shows actually out there trying to help OTHER PEOPLE, instead of a show searching for ratings and fans. They don't care how much money they're spending; they're spending the exact right amount to help families in need, and I think that makes this show the most beautiful one I have ever seen.
i have a friend that lives in this house and there is many problems with his moms house. the houses front window leakes,and the walls have bugs flying coming out of them.they have fly trap's and they have to be changed every 3rd day.
can you help

I have seen some of your show's and think they are wonderful, i think you are tremodesley amazoin on what you do for families and they look so pleased with the result's. I truel hope you can do right by at least going to look into this lady and her four childern ,please please please i heard this family's hardship from my nephew who hange's with him.only some of the things metioned in this letter above are wrong with this home. Thank's for your time in this matter. sincerly Deena De Costa
Just finished watching the Extreme makeover for the Vardon family. I need to take a nap now from sobbing happy tears for two hours. What a wonderful family. They paralell our own lives in many ways. we have an autistic son who is 26 and two wonderful, wonderful children who are now in college maxing out on student loans though. We purchased an industrial swing set, against homeowner's association rules, when our son was 14 so he could swing also. The sensory wall and the sensory room is something we wished for. God bless Ty and his crew. You are the antidote to the nightly news.
The show is great. I watch the show every sunday night and i never missed an episode. Ty is so funny with his megaphone and he can ve really crazy at times. the demolitions are very creative. also it is amazing that they build they house in a week. it is way better than renavate my family. I hope the shows lasts more than 10 seasons. they should try to do homes in other countries too. i would like to see if they can do a school in a week. so watch the show on your abc station every suday night.
I really like this show. It reminds me of another really great show called "Monster House" which used to be on Discover Channel. The only diference is that Ty doesn't create houses with themes; he creates really nice homes for people down on their luck or living in squallor. My favorite episode was the one where Ty called in a psychic because the house was haunted. Very cool, Ty is a great and funny character, especially for a guy like me who imitates his fave TV characters. The work is always impressive, and the families are always emotional. It's a really great show with a few unanswered questions. Like, what does Ty's crew do with basements? Do they fill them in? And two, how many of his older homes are still standing or owned by the same people? I would like to see a revisit to any house sold after a divorce or lost by a natural disaster.
I volunteered with the Swenson Lee Family's makeover and it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. They really do care, all of them. I met Ty and he's got to be the most amazing human being I've ever heard of. He really seems to understand the value of a minute. If you've seen what other stuff he's done, you'll understand what I mean. These families are truly deserving as well. All these people talking all this crap about the show, they're either total jerks or they just don't have anything better to do. But that's life. The world's full of jerks, so you just got to live with it. When it comes to helping others in the world; it's not a contest. It doesn't matter how much money you dump into it or if it's more that you think they really need. One person's work isn't more important than another's. Again, it's not a contest- it's reality.
...though I must admit, I don't watch it as religiously as I did when it first began airing. I still believe in the premise and its inspiring to see this kind of show conceived in the midst of all the other drivel "they" pass off as entertainment.
It has recently begun to bother me that suppliers are getting their "plugs" in, surreptitiously at first, and now much more blatantly. I appreciated their efforts more when true altruism was the name of the game, but what can you do...
I also wonder sometimes what happens to property taxes that the homeowners are now responsible for, and logistical details like that, but in no way does it detract from the true intent of the show and its gratifying to see real people get the break they deserve.
We are totally enjoying the new Heroes series that is currently being aired. It is so nice to see these people that have been great role models in their community get something nice. Ty Pennington does a great job keeping the series interesting and funny. I hope somewhere along the line you can explain how you select the builders for these projects? How are you able to get all the permits and building inspections done so quickly? As well as other tips for building or remodeling a home. We have already purchased season one on DVD and look forward to the opportunity to be able to purchase seasons two through six.

Hy. my name is Szekely Katalin, i`m writing from Romania. I watch your show sometime, and i have a quastion. If someone have problems in Romania did you help them?

Thanks for the help. Best regards
The backyards look like resorts. The interiors are made for mega-celebrities. Most of the time the homes look rediculous on the street in which they reside. They could help 10+ families for the money they spend on one. Oftentimes the home could be remodeled instead of being torn down. Instead they do the whole bulldozer thing. It's distasteful and wasteful, particulary in this economy. The time is over for wasteful overindulgence. The blowhorns are childish. Ty Pennington and his tearful eyes look phoney baloney. Stop being a showcase for interior designers and builders and make dreams come true for more people.
I feel so bad for the family after there devasting loose of there father brother and husband, my only hope for theme is they can carry on with there lives.
They now have a beautiful Castle to live in, and live in a great community. I'm proud to be an American and living in a Great Country were people still care about there next door nieghbors. The family can find a litttle comfort in knowing they are still together and have a great future to look foward to.
This is 1 for the book, my wife and I were totally in tears all the way through.
We watch this show faithfully every week. This is one of the best ones yet.
becuase she has done so much for us ( her four children) and the community (as far as helping people and animals) she needs a new place she is 51, handicapped and has Detearior retna disorder. which basically means that she could lose her vcision at anytime. so please ABC help our mom for us my brother is in the process of doing the application. she really needs help. Thank you so much. I think that Ty and the rest of the crew does a amazing job with helping out all families in need, you are a god sent gift.

I am Trying to enter my family in your contest to get a home makover, but I can't seem to find an email so i can do so. so I thought this would be the next best thing. My brother and his fiance have two children together and she has two children from a previous marriage and she also adopted her niece. They have been together for almost seven years and have been planing to get married for some time now, but it always seems that everything that can go wrong happens to them. They Bought A house five years ago in Port Sanilac MI., but before they bought the house it sat empty for five years. Kelly stays at home with my niece Penelope, she is three, and she has been trying to open her own daycare center, but they can't get their basement to stop flooding. A daycare would be nice in this area because the next closest one is fifteen to twenty minuts away. Now there is mold is the basesment and in the "master" bathroom, and it is really bad. My Brother Jason, has to have a white van for work and he had to buy what he could aford, so it is always breaking down on him and that makes him miss work, which means no money for the house, the kids or their wedding.The house isn't big enough for their children along, but she couldn;t watch her neice go into a home. It took them over a year just to build her room, Carly is fifteen and really needs her own room, but because the basement keeps flooding, they now have to take the money put aside for their wedding and redo her room. My nephews steven (12) and Jason (5) have to share a room and my neices Ashley (11) and Penelope (3) share a room. Jason and Kelly are so big heared that they would love to take in foster children but they don't have the room to, and that breaks their hearts. These are just a few things that have set them back in more ways than one. I'm not just doing this because they ae family but because they are good people and deserve this, and they struggle so hard and they deserve a new start. thank you for your time!! -Laura- firstname.lastname@example.org
I was totally blown away by this 2 hour episode show over 2 days where i live....Part 1, showing how this family lost their dad, who their dad was, and where they lived now, really hooked me in to watch part 2.
I was totally blown away by this 2 hour episode show over 2 days where i live....Part 1, showing how this family lost their dad, who their dad was, and where they lived now, really hooked me in to watch part 2. I had no idea how much the next episode was going to touch me...I pretty much cried through the whole show, the love that was so obvious from all the people whose lives had been touched by this family....I was so blown away that people could live with so much love in giving to others and I think what really hit me the most, was facing my own loss of my father when i was a baby. Because they kept going on about how losing your dad meant losing the provider and protector, I realised right then and there, just what my family lost too and I felt a new understanding towards my own mother and how much we as a family, all my siblings and mum had lost in losing our father too. I really want to keep this episode so i can show others, so Im looking to download it....this will touch everybody's heart. I now love this show and I am going to download and watch every episode when my uni semester is over.
I really enjoy this show also. I really want to register for my Aunt, she has 14 kids and they are all living in a double wide trailer. Her and her husbands are great people, but they are going threw tuff times. How do I register for them?

This is something they really need, especially with 14 children. If somebody could please get back to me or give me some information on how I could try to get this for them that would be great. They had to move out of there old house because they could not afford it and now there all in a double wide trailer. My uncle works two jobs just to pay bills. They are the most loving and caring people, and would do anything to help others I just think they deserve some help to them. I know it sounds crazy, but they really have 14 children. Thank you so much..
I love this show. It is inspiring. Showing that people can make a difference and help out those in need. Nearly every episode has brought me to tears. To see the joy they bring to families is moving. We could learn so much from them. The communities come together and change lives. They get the job done in record time with many of the team members staying up all night. That is dedication. To be able to see how much people put into the job and see the end product is amazing. The families joy can be seen when they finally get to see their house.
