Following our appearance on HGTV’s “Curb Appeal,” we participated in another home restoration but for a different kind of home. We worked with ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” on the after-school home for underserved children in northeastern Washington, DC: The Fishing School.
The school serves children from 6-12 years old with after-school and summer enrichment programs that improve their academic performance and helps them avoid the dangers present in their neighborhoods. It’s an inspiring institution that we were only too happy to help.
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and Burch Builders teamed up to create a state-of-the-art facility for the Fishing School and its students. We were honored to be asked to install fencing for the property. We used a combination of metal picket and wood fencing to offer privacy and protection while maintaining a friendly environment for young minds to grow and develop.
All the contractors who participated in the project, including Hercules Fence, donated their time and materials. It was an easy contribution to make given the good work that the school does in the community. The episode aired in February, but you can view our video of the project as well as find out how you can make a donation to the Fishing School by clicking here.
