TV show plans to make over Wisconsin home

GREEN BAY (AP) -- An ABC television show plans to select one of five northeastern Wisconsin homes to feature in its home makeover show.

The recipient will be notified with a visit on Aug. 14 by the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's" cast, including host Ty Pennington. Work gets under way the next day.

The show features a family receiving a home makeover from local builders.

Lexington Homes is the lead contractor. President Jeff Marlow says the pro bono build is expected to take 105 hours, but he hopes to finish it sooner.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that a pep rally scheduled Thursday at the Lambeau Field Atrium will feature entertainment and provide information to interested volunteers.
