The largest house that ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition has ever built is now finished and the girls from Boys Hope Girls Hope moved in this week.
Last Sunday the now famous words were screamed by Ty Pennington, "Move that Bus!" and the hard work and dedication were rewarded. Nobody thought the house could be completed on time because of two days of heavy rain but the girls from Girls Hope now have a new home.
The girls were estatic and couldn't believe they were actually going to live in this 11,000 sq ft home with its National Aquarium inspired roof.
The home was built in the Excel factory in PA and donated to the girls. Hundreds of volunteers and many home builders from the Maryland HBA joined together to finish it after the house was set by cranes about a week earlier. 11,000 sq ft of modular home! Now that's something every modular factory and modular builder in the US can brag about.
This was the second modular home Extreme Makeover has used. Last season a modular home built by Nationwide Homes broke new ground for the show.
We've come a long way to proving that we aren't your father's mobile home!
Here's a heads up! Harris Woodward, owner of FinishWerks, a green modular home builder from Savage, MD, and one of the volunteers on the Extreme house is going to be a contributor to this blog writing articles about Green building methods and myths.
