Extreme Makeover in New York

No it’s not for me! How I wish wish wish that it was! But some other Upstate New York family has been blessed with a brand-new home. I’ve never seen the TV show, “Extreme Makeover,” (no TV), but I would if I could. It sounds great! They build these houses, using local workers, in a week! Wowee!

This time it was a family in Geneva, NY. The Hill family went on vacation for a week, and when they returned, they had a new house! My local news outlet has the story and video here. When I read the Hill’s description of their old house, I empathized entirely:

“It was an old farmhouse, [it] had a barn in the back with a stall for a horse,” says Michelle Hill, referring to her old home, where her family lived for about 10 years.

“The roof was leaking, the basement would flood, and if we didn’t hear the sump pumps turn on, we’d have to go down there with buckets and boots,” she says.

There must be a lot of these leaky old houses around…

Mr. Hill is a great guy, too. He’s dedicated his life to helping kids from dysfunctional and troublesome homes, even adopting one of them. What a guy! I wish him and his family all the best!!!
