Bloomington, IL - Brady Homes will build one deserving Central Illinois family a new home as part of the Emmy award-winning reality TV show, ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Brady Homes was chosen as the contractor for this “Extreme” build due to its reputation for giving back to the community. They have built four homes for St. Jude and also homes for residents of Marcfirst, an organization for the developmentally disabled.
Brady Homes will be responsible for overseeing the project’s construction and event management while upholding the highest standards of quality craftsmanship, design, and energy efficiency. Not only will this home be built in seven days but all products and labor will be donated by partnering trades and suppliers.
“The Brady family has always believed in giving back to our communities and is excited about helping a family who is in need of a new home,” said Ed Brady, co-owner with Bob and Bill Brady of Brady Homes. “When Extreme Makeover: Home Edition called us, there was no doubt we were willing to take on the challenge of organizing the building of a new home in one week for a deserving family.”
Five families within a 50 mile radius of the Brady Homes’ office in Bloomington, IL, are being considered for the build, all of whom have been deemed “Heroes at Home.” On Tuesday, August 18th, one lucky family will be surprised by Ty Pennington, team leader of the show, and the design team when they hear a knock at their front door.
“Brady Homes’ history for passion and commitment to their communities was clear to us,” said Conrad Ricketts, executive producer of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. We are seeking ‘Heroes in the Community,’ and both the family that will be chosen and Brady Homes are wonderful representatives of our theme this season.”
