During the second day of the build, we caught up with Sal Ferro, President and CEO of Alure Home Improvements, to get his take on the progress of the Lutz home. Sal had some great news: the foundation has been laid, the first floor framed, and walls have been erected.

He also had some not-so-great news: the build is currently running six hours behind schedule, due to heavy rain and other delays. “The rain killed me last night,” Sal said. “We had four hours of rain, but three were torrential rain. There was a river running down the street.”
While the Alure crew and volunteer continued working through the downpour, it did put a damper on the process and slowed down the build. But with this being Alure’s eighth collaboration with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Sal remains optimistic.
“I’m feeling better now that the framing is up but we’re six hours behind. We need to make up a lot of time between now and Saturday at 2 p.m. when I need to hand over the keys to the house.”
We’re excited to see the progress made on the house overnight, as we keep our fingers crossed for clear skies for the remainder of the week.
