Extreme Makeover Beaufort: A home goes up (Day 4 roundup)

Updated January 15: It appears framing of the new house was delayed by a lack of skilled labor.

Residents heeded the call for framers, but it wasn't enough to get the house up per the schedule that the EMHE crew is used to.

The Island Packet has its usual brief story with some nice photos. You can check that out here.

Also, the EMHE Facebook page has some great photos from Day 4. Check them out here.

Reported January 14: So what happened on Day 3 of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Beaufort?

Well a frame started to go up, which is very exciting.

The Island Packet has some nice shots of just what the house is starting to look like. You can check those out  here.

For your video needs, WSAV again is the best option with a nice report from the site. You can check that out below.

Other than that it's business as usual out at the site, but don't expect to see Ty out there today. He'll be down in Florida unveiling another EMHE project.

The site is open to spectators from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. again today. You're asked to park over at the Piggly Wiggly on Ribaut Road in Port Royal and take a shuttle to the site. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry are holding a food drive over at the parking area, so bring some non-perishable items with you to drop off.

Finally, some kudos to Beaufort.

At about 6 this morning the Extreme Makeover page on Facebook put out a call for skilled framers. And that call was answered in about 5 minutes. So kudos to all of you whom are helping out with this project.
