Public Gets First Glimpse of Home Makeover Project
It's out with the old and in with the new for one Gainesville family as the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" project moves into its next phase. Tuesday, the old Wagstaff family home was demolished and Wednesday work began toward building them a brand new one. The public was also allowed on the work site for the first time.
Dozens of spectators watched as volunteers poured the foundation for the house. Others guests, like Gainesville mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, got a little closer to the action. Many more are expected in the days leading up to next Monday's big reveal-- when the Wagstaffs get to see their house.
Filming continued for the show, but during breaks cast members posed for pictures. Opportunities that some people say brought them out in the first place.
"I was on Facebook actually and saw the group that said "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Gainesville." I was like oh my gosh it's in Gainesville I got to come see," said Caitlin Swain, a University of Florida student. "We took time away from studying for our finals this upcoming week and were like we gotta go see this."
