The families, the houses and the Designed Exterior

In the days that followed Sunday, May 22, 2011 residents of Joplin immediately cried out for help and who better to reach out to than Ty Pennington and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EM:HE).

Thankfully, the show responded and in a way that no one might have expected – it wouldn’t just be one family, one house in one week. Instead, it would be seven families, seven houses in seven days.

From a materials perspective, Ply Gem, as a manufacturer of nearly everything that “dresses” the outside of a house, was identified as an ideal supplier. And, because of the Designed Exterior by Ply Gem we were able to help make a neighborhood of seven custom houses a reality. Together with the EM:HE team we carefully made plans to create seven unique home exteriors that would reflect the personalities of the families.
