The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) presented the first-ever NAHB Special Achievement Award for Contributions to the Home Building Industry to the television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in a ceremony held during its recent board of directors meeting.

NAHB created the award to recognize individuals or organizations that are not directly involved in housing that have done much to showcase the home building industry in a positive light.  

"Through their work, the talent, creativity, dedication and generosity of the home-building community has been showcased in millions of living rooms across the country," said NAHB Chairman Sandy Dunn, a home builder from Point Pleasant, W.Va.

"'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' has changed the lives of more than a hundred families -- and inspired millions more," Dunn said. "And more importantly, it has shown what a home can mean to a family."

The show's Executive Producer Conrad Ricketts, Senior Producer Diane Korman and Production Manager David Bohler accepted the award.
