Want to buy an Extreme Makeover Home house? There’s one for sale in Chapman, KS, for $298,900 and the Tutwiler Family that owns it say they are leaving due to hard feelings over the home being built.
According to kansascity.com, the Tutwiler Family of Chapman, KS received an Extreme Makeover Home in November of 2008 after an F-4 scale tornado leveled their home and dozens of others in Chapman. While the Extreme Home Makeover crew helped other residents remodel and repair their homes, the Tutwilers received a brand-new home, plus a Disney cruise, a new pickup truck, and other gifts. This evidently resulted in a lot of sniping among the residents, as evidenced by this article by Salina Journal Executive Editor Ben Wearing.
ABC chose the Tutwilers to receive a new home when they heard of their plight: Patrick Tutwiler is an Iraq war veteran who was shot while on duty and while he was recovering, the tornado struck. He tried to get a loan to finance the home and rebuild it, but was turned down. That’s when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition stepped in.
The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and has an open floor plan. See more photos of the Tutwiler’s Extreme Makeover Home.
