Every home from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

The popular TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition recently completed its nine-season run, and user sladys over at Google Earth Hacks has posted a file with the location of virtually every home in the series. It’s neat to be able to quickly fly down and view each of these remarkable homes.

What I found remarkable was the consistent spread of homes across the United States. I don’t know if the producers intentionally tried to reach every corner of the country, but that’s certainly what happened.

    One season they did all 50 states. I remember an episode in Hawaii. However, I can’t remember if they went to Alaska

  2. I had been told by one of the producers that they tried to do a home in each of the major TV submarkets as defined by Neilson.

    You can see it in my file from above and in SV.
    If you go to season 8 you can see Ty’s team at the beginning of the Grommesh family. The bus stands outside the house with the crew and spectators around. You can also see the road blocks around nearby streets.

  4. File has now been updated with links to Street View, BEV, Bing Maps and Google Maps 45 so you can see them from all angles, but also from before the show.
    I only miss the new house of the Skaggs family from Slaughterville OK and the Veteran’s Memorial Center on the Navajo Reservation in Tuba City AZ they made.
    Do you know where it is please give me the coordinate either here or at GEH.
    Thanks
