Extreme reveal

I covered most of this in the story today, but a few extra "Extreme Makeover" thoughts:

- Favorite random crowd quote: "I got a picture of Ty's butt!"

- Where I parked: Kansas. Or possibly New Mexico, it was on the south side of the build.

- Best TV moment: Ty leading the family out and everyone acting all excited. Four times.

- Best TV moment that involved me: When my cell phone rang during take No. 2.

- Crowd's favorite designer. Ed, for some reason, even though Eduardo and Rib were there. They made Ed sign autographs for like an hour and a half.

If you get the chance, drive down there and take a look (take Powers south to Fontaine, head east, it's on the other side of Marksheffel). It's the very first house in what will eventually be a giant subdivision. Right now, it looks like aliens landed on the Moon in a ranch house with a two-car garage. It is, I will say, a nicer looking home than I expected based on the early descriptions. They used sort of a warm tan for the stucco, with some rough-hewn wood accents.

So - why was the family sleeping in a hotel instead of their new house on Sunday night...

The Gazette ran an article on that - saying they get their keys Monday - but didn't say why. Any story there?

Sorry, limited space. My understanding is that on Sunday the house was camera-ready, but not family-ready. Matt Swanson, the project manager for the builder, was still working his butt off on Monday.

More Hollywood magic!
