Extreme Makeover

Late in the fall of 2005, David Gordon, president of Katahdin Cedar Log Homes, was contacted by the producers of ABC's Extreme Makeover-Home Edition to construct a new cedar log home for a deserving family in Wells, Maine. The Goodales are a lobstering family whose father suffered the loss of an arm while fishing the Maine waters.

Four Weeks to Plan

When the final go-ahead was given, the Katahdin team had approximately four weeks to design a new home to fit on the family's existing foundation and lot, to coordinate the donation of all the materials and labor associated with construction and to transport these materials and people to the site. The dramatic rise of the new cedar log home over the course of September 30 - October 3, 2005, was captured on film and appeared on the final one-hour special Extreme Makeover-Home Edition broadcast.

Five Days to Build

With a design and materials in hand and an army of volunteers, David and his team set out to replace the existing doublewide home on a foundation with a brand-new three-bedroom Katahdin Cedar Log Home. The team had to overcome numerous obstacles, including weather, timing, and manpower, as well as develop solutions to fit within the tight time frame.
