  • Very fine show!

    This again is why I watch the show

    And that it is a good show for the whole entire family

    Uplifting and heartful as well as cheerful stories

    About a man who only asked for nothing in return

    As he went or tried to defend his county

    To make sure that the world was safe

    Only to come home handicapped

    That this family needed a new home

    Thanks again to the EHME that dream came true

    It was very good to see the home finally being built the way it should be built

    The reason it was torn down is because they needed to start from scratch

    If you know what I mean!moreless
  • I was very moved by the emotion behind the episode and the people involved in helping out.

    This is the first time I've really watched the show and I found myself glued to the tv. I'm a Canadian and have a new respect for the men in the United States fighting for their country. The show not only respected the feelings of the family but the cast went out of their way to make their home like a dream come true.
  • Is there a sight that shows the type of paint used and names of the colors, etc.

    It was a very good show except that the original house was better than what I and most people I know live in. They should have given it to a homeless family and re-built. This was not a remodeling or makeover in any way. My question... Is there a sight that shows the type of paint used and names of the colors, etc.
  • I really didn't see the point in them demolishing this family's home as it was a great home...

    They could have used their previous home for a needy family that needed a place to live and then built them a new home in the neighborhood.

    They demolished a perfectly fine home to build a new one that was handicap accesible. I don't like that they had this as the season premiere as it doesn't seem to fit in well with giving homes to needy families. Yes, they did need help with the handicap accessible features but their home was in the best shape out of all of the homes that have been featured on this showmoreless
