Savannah Hardscapes to Participate in the ABC Reality Show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" to be Filmed in Savannah November 13th – 18th
(HARDEEVILLE, SC) Savannah Hardscapes proudly announces their participation in the ABC reality show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" which is being filmed in Savannah this month.
Savannah Hardscapes is joining forces with Savannah builder J.T. Turner Construction to forever change the lives of a Savannah family by completely rebuilding their house.
"We are very excited to be part of the event," says Savannah Hardscapes co-owner Jonathan Rhangos. "To know that we are helping to improve the lives of a local family is a great feeling."
The 181st episode of the popular reality television program will be centered on constructing a new home for a Savannah family in need in less than a week. Savannah’s J. T. Turner Construction Company is the builder for the project, which will require a 24-hour daily work schedule.
Savannah Hardscapes is set to donate materials and supplies which will include brick pavers for the home’s front walkway and the surrounding garden wall. Savannah Hardscapes’ skilled artisan masons will be onsite at the fast paced building project to expertly install the materials at the home.
"Proper installation guarantees that the family will enjoy these elements of their home for many years to come," Rhangos explains.
The Savannah episode, expected to air six to eight weeks after filming, will also feature a local canned food drive in which America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia will attempt to collect 150 tons, or 300,000 pounds, of canned goods for low-income families.
