Operation Makeover

The whirring of electric saws and drills spills out from the inside of the Ronald McDonald House in Fort Lauderdale. That's because Operation Build, a TV home improvement reality series on the History Channel, has been renovating the charity house just outside downtown Fort Lauderdale.  I wrote an article about the renovation and I got to hang out with the crew and meet some of the workers and families there.

Photo to the left, the show's design team led by Alexi Panos prepare to apply new wallpaper in the dining area.

I couldn't resist having our photographer Taimy snap a photo of me with the lifesize  Ronald McDonald figurine that sits on a bench at the entrance of the residential complex.
