Earlier this month, Ty Pennington and the design team from Extreme Makeover Home Edition turned up at the Oregon School for the Deaf with an exciting announcement! Read on to find out all of the details of what the ABC reality series will be doing on this build!
The Extreme Makeover Home Edition bus arrived at the Oregon School for the Deaf in early September. Ty Pennington got out of the bus and informed the gathered crowd that they would not only be rebuilding the school’s dormitory, but also, he and his designers would be building them a new haunted house!
The Oregon School for the Deaf established a haunted house – called the Nightmare Factory – in 1987. It was the brainchild of a dorm counselor named Ed Roberts, who decided it would be a great fundraiser for the school’s residential programs. According to a local newspaper, The Statesman Journal, initially, the haunted house was created on only four hundred dollars worth of materials. It had a four-night run which raised $4000 for the school.
This past May, the Nightmare Factory even hosted the West Coast Haunters Convention, and proceeds from the haunted house over the years have benefited reading programs, playground equipment, equipment to keep up the school’s community garden, and a whole lot more!
We’re wondering if this Extreme Makeover Home Edition episode will air on October 31st? In any case,Â it will be incredible to see what Ty and the gang come up with in the way of effects for the haunted house – can’t wait!Â Stay tuned to Reality TV Magazine for updates and Extreme Makeover Home Edition highlights!
