Extreme Makeover: Home Edition "Door Knock Day!"

Fresno, CA, USA One lucky local family finds out this morning, they're lives will be changing dramatically. It's going to be an experience they'll never forget.

Each inspirational episode ending with a shout to: "Move that bus!" marks a new beginning for a family in need. Five local families were being considered for the next taping of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

The finalist will be revealed Thursday morning with a rousing "good morning!" wakeup from host Ty Pennington.

The Fresno-based family of builders "De Young Properties" will lead the effort to build a house in four and a half days; a monumental project that would ordinarily take months to accomplish.

"We'll be there 24 hours a day pretty much, sleeping on site. We'll be working 13-hour shifts, we'll be in the house with our hard hats all day," said Ryan DeYoung.

Since the hit-show premiered five years ago, Ty and his team of designers have changed the lives of 137 families. Their signature: custom designs that fit the family's needs and personality. Like a home in Livermore, California, with seven sinks for seven sisters and a firefighter themed room for a future firefighter.

Who knows what crazy and creative ideas they'll come up with in Fresno, but we'll find out March 2009 when this episode is scheduled to air.
