St. Paul family to be featured on ABC’s ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Editon’

Five St.

Five St. Paul families are being considered for a spot on the ABC show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” says Mayor Chris Coleman’s office.

One of the families will get a new house, built during an intensive one-week period and then featured on the television show. The winning family and house location will be announced Oct. 2.

TJB Homes of Blaine will coordinate the construction. The company also coordinated the building of the Swenson-Lee home in Minnetonka for the show in 2007.
