Debbie Oatman-Gaitan of Colonie and her four sons were woken this morning, Thursday, March 22, to learn their home would be torn down and replaced by a bigger, better, modern abode, compliments of the ABC network.
Oatman-Gaitan's home has been selected by the network's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
The show designs, builds, landscapes and stuffs homes with amenities in one week for families across the country whose homes and lives are in need of a makeover.
Oatman-Gaitan lives on Fairway Lane off Consaul Road, north of The Town of Colonie Golf Course.
Builders Amedore Homes of Albany have been slated to head construction of the family's new home. Show producers and Amedore is calling on the local community to help out with the build.
