    I didnt get the impression that they were anything other than a traditional family.

    what an amazing family and I would agree the most deserving I have seen.

    I missed the very beginning but I still alot.

    I am always amazed that they can build a house and be that creative in just a week.......

    I think they blew the whole "contractor who hasn't ever built a house" thing way out of proportion. All the commercial contractors I know are far better builders than any of the residential ones I've ever had to work with. They are far more used to working on tight deadlines and such. Also, despite what you see on the show, the house is planned and permits and approvals gotten well in advance of the show. As they said that the framing was being done off site and then being trucked in , (possibly started before the demo) and set up, the building was very easily constructed. I'd expect to see them do this more often.
    I did think it was a great show, the house was fabulous. The family really needed the room.

    I was flipping channels and I just caught the ending. The husband's reaction to the portrait of his wife actually brought tears to my eyes.

    This was a great episode, and a wonderful family. I really like how the team works so hard to take the personality and taste of each family member into account for their decisions. So many improvement shows are all about the designers, and interesting TV. Giving these wonderful people not only what the need, but exactly what they wanted makes for the best TV.

    I have always wanted to see this show but am never home on Sunday nights. I was actually home last night and stumbled across the show about 15-20 minuts in - boy am I glad I did! I cried so much! I love home makeover shows, but it's so much better when it's done for a very worthy cause and when it's appreciated so much by the family. I am just amazed at everything they did - right down the basketball court dining room table! Just out of curiousity - what is the budget for this show? And did anyone catch how many square feet the new house is? I most certainly will watch this show again if given the opportunity. Next time I'll have kleenex in hand.
