Extreme Makeover: Home Edition


Client: Lock & Key Productions
Year: 2012



Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) produced their 207th episode at the Watson Family home in Knoxville. Johnson Architecture was honored to be chosen as the architect by Grace Construction, ABC, and Lock & Key Productions. ABC came to the table with an idea for two structures and JAI worked with their designers to create the “village” that was built on site. After a one-day design charrette with all of the key players, JAI expedited the construction document process to meet the production schedule; obtained all of the required permits and approvals; and worked through the standard submittal process to facilitate construction. The duplex was designed to house single-mom families who are clients of the non-profit Restoration House, which the Watsons founded. EMHE relied on over 3,000 volunteers throughout the community to complete the project – a completely new home and two bungalows were built within a nine-day period. All work and supplies were donated.
