Schell Brothers Team Selected to Lead Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Build in Delaware

By Schell Brothers, in Extreme

Schell Brothers, a homebuilder located in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, announced today that the company has been selected as the builder for an upcoming episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The build will take place in Sussex County, Delaware to benefit a local family in need who will be surprised when Ty Pennington of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition knocks on their door. Several finalists in Sussex County are being considered for the build, and one lucky family will experience a life-changing thrill when they open the door on August 22nd and a flurry of construction activity begins. Schell Brothers employees and the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team will work with community volunteers to build a dream home for the deserving family in just one week.
The project is well-suited to Schell Brothers, a unique residential construction company that has based its business strategy on building happiness and giving back to the community, making them an ideal partner for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition show. In addition to homebuilding, Schell Brothers has been involved in several local charitable endeavors, including Habitat for Humanity, the Lewes Canalfront Park project, the Sussex County Land Trust, and local events to support cancer research. The company’s culture of happiness and commitment to excellence plays out in a variety of ways, most notably the happy stories employees create for each new home customer. Throughout the home buying experience, employees and homeowners develop friendships that often last long after the home is built. It will be natural for this enthusiastic team to parlay their talent, energy, and experience into creating a dream come true for a needy family.
According to company owner, Chris Schell, “We’re proud to be part of this project that will bring our whole community together to impact a local family’s life for years to come. A group of positive people all working in the same direction is an unstoppable force – this will be a memorable experience for us all.”
The public is invited to support the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition effort by attending a Pep Rally on Tuesday, August 16th at Cape Henlopen High School. Promotional items such as T-shirts that have been designed exclusively for the Delaware build will be available at a recommended donation and several fundraisers have been planned.
