Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – Demo Day - Kemah
Hundreds of people in bright blue T-shirts marched up Delesandri Lane in Kemah today chanting “Build that house!” They were all taking part in the “Braveheart Walk,” a pep-rally ritual that begins every building project on the popular ABC television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The walk is inspired by the movie Braveheart, from a scene where Celtic people walk over a hill, weapons in hand, to defeat the English oppressing their village.
Listen in as several of the Trade Partners for this Extreme project tell Talk of the Bay how they are going to accomplish the task of building a beautiful new home, for the Beach 16, in less than hours.
This home will be finished in 106 hours by a team of vendors and volunteers lead by Blu Shields Construction, and will be designed to fit the needs of the Beach family who take in handicapped and terminally ill children that other adoption agencies are not able to place.
And so far….we’re on schedule!

About Blu Shields Construction and Energy Solution Homes: Blu Shields Construction (Blu Shields, President) is a division of Energy Solution Homes (Patrick Henderson, CEO) of Texas City, TX. It is their vision to change the philosophy of custom homebuilding. They are the only builders in this part of the country building high energy efficient homes (without solar or wind generated power) that produce very low electric bills. Their homes are built within 30 to 45 days, below the average construction cost. Their real challenge is to unite all builders as one, while bringing together all county and city emergency management teams so that communities can be rebuilt, not only in coastal regions but throughout the entire United States.
