The crew from the ABC show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is watching the weather carefully with a winter storm predicted for reveal day.
Since Thursday, hundreds of volunteers have been building a home in west Wichita for former Wichita State All-American baseball player Carl Hall and his family. Hall was paralyzed in a car accident last summer. The family's home is not wheelchair accessible, so the Halls were staying in a rented condo.
The home is near completion with just the finishing touches left. It has a voice activated system inside, along with an elevator so Hall can get from the main floor to the basement.
The show's "Move That Bus" scene where the family is surprised with the home is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon around 2:00, but a winter storm is predicted.
Show's producers say no matter what the weather, they will tape. They are encouraging members of the public to attend the event to help show the support for the Halls.
The Extreme Makeover producers are asking people to come out at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning for the reveal shoot. The actual reveal won't happen until 2-4 pm, but they want everyone in place at 10 a.m.
