TYGAR VOLUNTEERS ON
ABC’S “EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION”
TO BUILD A NEW HOME FOR A KENTUCKY FAMILY
TYGAR joins local certified contractor to provide landscape curbing for family’s new home
TYGAR Manufacturing announced today its participation on ABC-TV’s Emmy award-winning, hit reality show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, as part of a community effort to construct a new home for a special Owensboro, KY family in just seven days. In partnership with Curb Scapes of Owensboro, TYGAR assisted with the oversight and installation of nearly 300 feet of
landscape curbing for the new home. Curb Scapes, a TYGAR certified and trained contractor, is the local provider of decorative concrete curbing for Owensboro and the surrounding community, and they were selected by the builder, Thompson Homes, for this popular network television program. The curb installation was a key element in the landscape design, which was part of the intense one-week construction of the new home. Out of five deserving families, one was recently selected for the makeover, which will appear on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on ABC in November (Sundays 8/7c).
“All of us at TYGAR are very excited to participate in this event, a great way to give
something back to the Owensboro community by improving the lives of this family” said
Mark Crosswell, President of TYGAR Manufacturing, LLC. Alan Clark of Curb Scapes added that “when Thompson Homes and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” selected us, we jumped at the chance to volunteer our time and resources for this worthy cause.”
In order to successfully build the home in less than a week, ABC-TV’s “Extreme Makeover:Home Edition” and Thompson Homes have pulled together all types of contractors to donate their time, skill, and materials toward the project. Working around the clock, these contractors and many other volunteers worked in concert to build the home from scratch, complete with new landscaping and many modern amenities. Curb Scapes utilized TYGAR’s equipment to extrude a natural looking stone edging around the entrance way and other landscape features of the home. The result was a beautifully crafted, permanent edging that matched the contour and style of the home and topography.
