Update January 11: It's been announced — Get details here.

First reporting: So unless you've been living under a rock, and even then you really have no excuse, you've likely heard that the popular television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is headed to Beaufort County.

We still don't know exactly where in the county the home to be renovated is, or which family was selected, but that all will change this week.

We're expecting the big family announcement to come tomorrow, with construction to begin Wednesday.

*Note: We just saw on Facebook that an MCAS Beaufort-based Marine and his family is one of the finalists. 

We emailed over to the Hilton Head-based World Design Marketing, which is handling all the promotions for this, and they said the crummy weather shouldn't impact the week's schedule.

"They build in snow, sleet, rain and sun," the WDM account rep said.

We're also seeing on the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Beaufort County Facebook page that people who signed up to volunteer on the project are starting to receive their email confirmations.

This will shape up to be an exciting week no matter where in the county the home is.
