After the Extreme Makeover Build in Gainesville, Florida I begin hearing rumors about the show that trouble me. After doing some investigation I have been able to confirm one of the rumors. It seems that some recipients of the homes have lost their home because they cannot afford the mortgage, increased taxes and/or increased utilities bills.
Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover Home Edition crew are known for building outrageous dream homes for deserving families. The concept of the show is great but it is time for some downsizing. It is still possible to provide nice affordable housing that will meet the needs of the families without causing future problems.
