NAHB honors home makeover show

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has presented its first-ever Special Achievement Award for Contributions to the Home Building Industry to the television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

NAHB created the award to recognize individuals or organizations that are not directly involved in housing that have done much to showcase the home-building industry in a positive light.

“Through their work, the talent, creativity, dedication and generosity of the home-building community has been showcased in millions of living rooms across the country,” said NAHB chairman Sandy Dunn, in a statement.

The show’s executive producer Conrad Ricketts, senior producer Diane Korman and production manager David Bohler accepted the award.

More than one hundred home builders and 65,000 volunteers have donated time and materials to build homes for more than 130 “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” families across the United States, according to the NAHB.
