Palm Harbor Homes, Nationwide Homes and ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” Meet the Williams Family
Palm Harbor Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ:PHHM) and its wholly-owned modular subsidiary, Nationwide Homes, Inc. (“Nationwide”) today announced that they joined ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in Pine Mountain Valley, Georgia, to surprise Jeremy and Jennifer Williams, whose son Jacob was diagnosed with Spina Bifida before he was born. Then, several years after Jacob’s birth, Jeremy was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Now, the home Jeremy and Jennifer bought 13 years ago is falling apart around them. In addition to mounting home repairs, the home is too small to accommodate two disabled family members. In just seven days, team leader Ty Pennington, the design team, Palm Harbor and Nationwide Homes, and the entire community will come together to build Jeremy, 38, Jennifer, 38, Josie, 8, and Jacob, 6, a brand new, energy efficient home
