Extreme Makeover-Home Edition Comes to Kansas

This is from our local ABC news station, KAKE-TV:

The hit ABC show Extreme Makeover-Home Edition has converged on Southern Kansas.

The Nutsch family lost their home this summer in a big explosion.

Ty Pennington and his crew, complete with bullhorn, surprised the family Sunday.

Construction work begins Tuesday. The public is invited to watch the project from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The construction site is 14487 SW 220th Street near Douglass.

Stay tuned to KAKE News this week for the behind the scenes stories as tragedy turns into a dream come true.

The family had been on vacation and came back to find that their propane tank had exploded and they had lost everything they owned, including a family pet. Most of the family has been living in their grandfather's basement, while the father has been living in a school bus to protect what belongings they have left.

The house is supposed to be presented to the family, who's on vacation in Disney World right now, on Sunday! Watch the show and be on the lookout for this family from Rose Hill, KS!
