i can understand some people being cynical about the whole thing. I even was wondering about the condition of the home they are replacing in springfield . Its in a working class neighborhood , where the homes at one time must of been for big families or people with money . the House they tore down , had a decent architectural roof , from my standpoint all the windows had been replaced . I ??? my first impressions with the staff. They explained to me the interior was a mess , holes in roooms, electrical below current code, sewage in the cellar etc .The homes on this street basically take up almost the whole lot, we arent talking acres here folks, more like 10,000 sq ft lots or less .
I appreciate that somefolks understand I went with my gut,and so far I am happy with my decision . Just the few things they have done, like offering to pay for my coach repairs ( that had nothing to do with anything they did ) allowing my niece to shadow their staff for how manydays she can this week with her professors support. Like I said before, just the oppertunity my niece has been allowed , makes this all worth it to me. I am looking forward to seeing the finished project, and i hope a new home with new memories helps this family.
Regardless of what the show does, it is you who is doing a good thing along with all of the other volunteers and that is what counts. On the show, I think the idea of what they are doing is a good one -to help out a family or families that need help- I just think they may tend to go a little overboard.
