The Bay Area of Houston calling for volunteers and donations.

Houston, TX Bay Area (December 22, 2009) – Blu Shields Construction, a Division of Energy Solution Homes, Coastal Building Specialists, announced today that they will be joining ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for an upcoming build early January 2010. One deserving family will get the surprise of their life as the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) team comes knocking on their door to inform them of the news. While the name of the family and the location of the site cannot be released until January 7, 2010, the project is underway and the wheels are already in motion for this intense one-week construction project that will result in putting this worthy family into the dream home of a lifetime.

Blu Shields Construction and Energy Solution Homes was chosen by EMHE to oversee this project because of the company’s ability to build quality and energy efficient homes in record time and their reputation of “teamwork with heart.” The company has a history of building superior homes within 30 to 45 days at affordable costs. Widely known for their post-Hurricane Ike construction recovery, Blu Shields Construction and Energy Solution Homes is about people helping people.
“When we were asked by EMHE to build a new home for a hero family, we were not only honored,” says Shields, “we were excited to be able to show America that high energy efficient homes can be built in record time. But our main message here is that teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results.”

About Blu Shields Construction and Energy Solution Homes:

Blu Shields Construction (Blu Shields, President) is a division of Galveston Service Company and Energy Solution Homes (Patrick Henderson, CEO) of Texas City, TX. It is their vision to change the philosophy of custom homebuilding. They are the only builders in this part of the country building high energy efficient homes (without solar or wind generated power) that produce very low electric bills. Their homes are built within 30 to 45 days, below the average construction cost. Their real challenge is to unite all builders as one, while bringing together all county and city emergency management teams so that communities can be rebuilt, not only in coastal regions but throughout the entire United States.
