Unlike the ABC hit series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Yip doesnt make over houses, he helps people who started building their dream home finish the job.
In his words, These people started reaching for the stars, figuring they could do it on their own and ended up biting off more than they could chew.
The family featured in the special the Rutledges of Tallapoosa, Georgia started building their dream home 10 years ago and it still has plenty of gaping holes and no functioning kitchen or doors on the bathroom.
Yip says the father, Randy Rutledge, told him the lack of progress on the home made him not feel like a man anymore so he was happy to get the job finished.
Home Intervention airs Sunday (Apr. 17) and while Yip promises as much emotion as on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, he admits he doesnt take off his shirt nearly as much as that shows host, Ty Pennington.
