Each episode features a family that has faced some sort of recent or ongoing hardship – such as a natural disaster or a family member with a life-threatening illness. The show's producers coordinate with a local construction contractor, which then coordinates with various companies in the building trades for a makeover of the family's home. That includes interior, exterior and landscaping, which is performed in seven days while the family is on vacation (paid for by the show's producers), which is documented in the episode. If the house is beyond repair, they replace it entirely. The show's producers and crew film set and perform the makeover but do not pay for it. The materials and labor are donated. Many skilled and unskilled volunteers assist in the rapid construction of the house.

Thanks for posting this op. i have heard about this happening. Of course its all good intentions, but i believe they should also do something financially for these people. Heck, they should just renovate the house, a nice paint job, some new appliances and whatever else they were going to build put the money in an account for these people. I think the main issue the people have is about money, so lets not add on to their problems! Give the kids a trust fund. Write a 5 year check for their mortgage!
