Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Coming to Triad, NC
Hedrick Creative Building Selected as Key Builder

Lexington, N.C., October 23, 2009 – An exciting announcement will be made during Lexington’s Annual Barbecue Festival opening ceremonies on Saturday, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the Emmy-award winning hit TV show on ABC Television, is coming to the Triad to present one deserving family with an extreme home makeover. Lexington builder, Hedrick Creative Building, with a goal to construct a new home in one week, will oversee and implement the project that will make a miracle happen for a Triad family.

On Wednesday, November 11, a Triad family will answer a knock on the door and find Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Team Leader Ty Pennington and his design team waiting to transform their home and their lives. Five families in the Triad have been nominated by their friends and families to receive the home makeover in recognition of their general day to day heroism.


“It’s such a great honor to be a part of something that makes such a difference in the life of a Triad family,” said Jason Hedrick, owner of Hedrick Creative Building. “The community is coming together to make this possible, it’s such a feel good project to give back and make a dream come true, that’s why I’ve chosen Let’s Build a Dream as the theme for this build.”
“We’ll be building this home to the National Association Homebuilders Green Building Standards, so not only will we be building the dream home for a deserving family, we’ll be building it in a manner pleasing to the environment. We’re paying attention to energy efficiency, water and resource conservation, the use of sustainable or recycled products, and measures to project indoor air quality.”

Hedrick Creative Building is reaching out to the community for support and involvement. Volunteers are needed to provide time and energy, support and resources to ensure the success of this dream come true project. “I believe in my community and I am excited to see how they will step up to make this dream a reality,” said Jason.

I am close friends with a family that was nominated for this. I am praying daily that they are the ones chosen as they are incredibly deserving and have had several tragedies in their lives in the past couple of years. I can't wait until Nov. 11!!!
