Ed Sanders, the English carpenter on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and the host of National Bingo Night (which premiers Friday at 9 p.m. on ABC), is breaking ground on a dream house in Claremont next month. He’s especially excited to be an Englishman achieving the American Dream.
Ed and his wife would not mind Pardon Our Dust Blog following the building of their home, perhaps with weekly updates and photos. It will be a gorgeous Tuscan home with a central courtyard, and Ed plans on making the dining room and kitchen tables. He has lots to say about the importance of a kitchen table as a place for families to sit and talk for hours. We might learn something about furniture building.
My question: Do you think this would be an interesting project to follow? Would you want to see this house emerge from Claremont’s rocky soil? Or not? As the house will take more than a year to build, following it will mean a big commitment.
If you would like me to follow Ed building his dream home on this blog, please leave a comment below. If not, ditto, leave a comment below. If you’re shy about stating your preference in a pubic forum, send me an email. Thanks for your input.
