Local family to get new home on reality show

HOUSTON A local family has been chosen to receive a free dream home on the ABC hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." The reality TV series is coming to the Houston bay area next month.

Construction on the still unidentified family's home will start next Thursday. Texas City-based builder BluShields Construction is providing services for free, but they need more volunteers and supplies.

Volunteers to help out are needed. If you're skilled in a trade, organizers want to hear from you. They're particularly short in siding installers, framers, drywall hangers, painters, window and exterior door installers and wallpaper hangers.

It will all begin on January 7, so if you're interested and can help, click here to volunteer.
