Suffield CT, Hill Family Extreme Makeover Home Edition

In June 2009 Olympic Electric along with 4000 volunteers mobilized on behalf of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to build a 5,200 square foot home for the Hill Family of Suffield, CT.


The Hills, a family of 13, had been living in a tiny home on Mather St in Suffield. Poor plumbing, fire and smoke damage and time had taken their toll on this home. The Hill family had been selected for the popular syndicated show due to their compelling story, commitment and faith through very difficult times.

Olympic Electric was called upon by Kent Pecoy, the general contractor for the job, to lead the electrical team and provide guidance on design and labor on installation. The original home was completely demolished on June 24 and the brand new home was finished less than 7 days later.

Olympic Electric was a platinum sponsor of this project and is grateful to all of our electricians and suppliers who stepped up and helped us to make this a success for a very deserving family.
