First lady Michelle Obama is expected to be in Fayetteville, NC, the home of Fort Bragg and Pope AFB, on Thursday to be part of the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" episode.

The ABC reality series has been in Fayetteville since last week filming the construction of a home for Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who is working to end homelessness among female veterans. Marshall created The Steps-N-Stages Jubilee House which provides homeless female veterans with housing and support services.  The home is a modular log home built by Blue Ridge Log CabinsThis is a real modular log home unlike other factories that build a standard modular home and cover it with split lag siding.  It will be awesome!

Obama's visit will be closed to the media, according to a news release. The episode featuring Marshall and the First Lady will air in October.

Construction workers and volunteers have been working around the clock since July 14 to build a second-story home for Marshall and the women she helps at the Jubilee House.

The president has done nothing for our industry due to the fact that there are no union guys he can pay off.
He and his wife make me want to puke

AMEN ANONYMOUS. That's all we need - the President, via his wife, making PR on the backs of the homebuilding industry for whom he has turned his back. Who needs him, his wife on another 4 years of him being President.
