Ty Pennington Will Show Up At Someone's Door .....

Surprise! "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" could be knocking on your door this month.
The Emmy Award-winning reality show is coming to Hampton Roads for the first time to rebuild a home for a family, but the beneficiaries won't find out until later this month, when host Ty Pennington shows up at their door.

Then, they'll be whisked away for a vacation to parts unknown, while volunteers rebuild their home in 106 hours.

Duane Cotton, president of Trademark Construction in Chesapeake, participated last year in a makeover in Georgia and said he knew the area had the kind of spirit to make it work.

Along with the construction, a food drive to help local food banks has begun, and a pep rally is planned from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 20 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

The episode featuring the local home will air about eight weeks after the project ends.

Trademark, Waller Todd and Sadler Architects in Virginia Beach and others will donate their services. Organizers need skilled and not-so-skilled volunteers.
