Ply Gem Supplies Seven Exteriors for Extreme Makeover Finale
Seven homes were built in seven days when ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover: Home Edition headed to Joplin, Mo., to help rebuild the tornado stricken town in the largest project in the show’s history. The build, which marks the show’s 200th episode and its series finale, will air on Friday, January 13 at 8 pm EST.
Ply Gem supplied complete exteriors for each of the seven homes through application of its Designed Exterior by Ply Gem packages, which consist of windows, doors, siding and other exterior building products that are mixed and matched to create a variety of home styles. Each of the seven home styles on the show–Cabin, Beach, Eco, Chic, Modern, Craftsman and Bohemian–was personalized for each family.
The seven families featured in the show were all affected by the tornado that tore through Joplin in May 2011, killing approximately 160 people and destroying nearly 8,000 homes. Some of the Joplin families lost friends, some lost children, and all lost their homes.
