Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, is an Emmy Award winning reality television series providing home renovations for deserving families. In each episode, a family that has faced some sort of recent or ongoing hardship – such as a natural disaster or a family member with a life-threatening illness – is profiled. The show's producers coordinate with a local construction contractor, which then coordinates with various companies in the building trades for a makeover of the family's home. That includes interior, exterior and landscaping, which is performed in seven days while the family is on vacation (paid for by the show's producers), which is documented in the episode. If the house is beyond repair, they replace it entirely. The show's producers and crew film the makeover but do not pay for it. The materials and labor are donated. Many skilled and unskilled volunteers assist in the rapid construction of the house.
