Extreme Makeover Home Edition in Charlotte...Episode Airs this Sunday at 8:00 PM on ABC 45

Demolition day on the Extreme Makeover Home Edition set started with the "Braveheart Walk". This is the part of the show when the blue shirted and hard hat-wearing volunteers march down the street cheering, ready to start the makeover.

After the Braveheart Walk comes demolition. Now, normally tearing a house this size to shreds would take just a few minutes. However, since the Extreme Makeover demolition is made for TV, the process takes much longer. There's alot of stopping and starting to change camera angles. The demo process for this show took about 1 1/2 hours.
Once demolition was over, clean up began. The producer told me that within 24 hours a home would be framed out on this very site. On Monday, August 4, the family was to be welcomed home.
