Air Date Announced

In a press release dated Monday, November 10, 2008, ABC announced that the episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition featuring the Nickless family of Holt, Michigan will air Sunday, November 30, 2008, at 8:00 p.m.

My brother Ben and his wife Paulie, owners of Ewing’s Wood Floors & More, as well as former owner Craig Ewing, had the privilege of contributing to the project by doing the full installation of the solid oak flooring in the blue bedroom (airplane theme) for the youngest son. After finishing the blue bedroom, Ben, Paulie, and Craig were pleased to assist in the floating laminate installation for the kitchen, dining room, and a hallway area leading to the back door.

It was an amazing experience for all who were involved. Paulie said, “It was such an honor to help that family start a new life.”

Wordless Wednesday ~ Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Sorry for the quality of the inside pictures, Paulie said it was very dark and dusty in the house.  I’m trying to keep this “wordless”, so you can read more about this here and here.

“The Braveheart March”

Ben and Paulie participated in the volunteer’s march (the show refers to it as “The Braveheart March”) to the construction site prior to demolition on Sunday morning.  Another participant kindly sent these pictures.

I’m SO Proud!

Yesterday, Ty Pennington and the rest of the cast of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition arrived in Michigan to surprise a deserving family.  Earlier in the week, a member of the show’s staff called my brother and invited Ewing’s Wood Floors & More (my brother and sister-in-law’s business) to be part of the large flooring crew that will be installing the wood floors in the house from 7:00 p.m. on Wedensday through 8:00 a.m. on Thursday.

Way to go Ben and Paulie for continuing the Ewing tradition, being considered a premier wood floor vendor in mid-Michigan, and for giving of your time and talents for a deserving family!
