Update

CAMPOBELLO, SC – July 13, 2011 After making a pit stop at the Statehouse in Columbia, SC,
where South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley lauded Blue Ridge Log Cabins for its public-spiritedness and
philanthropy, the fi nal major piece of the company’s “Extreme Home” arrived in Fayetteville, N.C.,
on Tuesday afternoon.

“We believe in being a good state neighbor in South Carolina, and we are thrilled about the
attention this is going to give both to our state and to one of our great companies,” Gov. Haley
said.

After the new homeowner is notified they have been selected to receive the specially designed log
home on Thursday, the South Carolina-based builder will begin putting the structure together on
Saturday while a production crew for the hit ABC series “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” films
the entire process. The program will air sometime this fall during EMHE’s 9th season.

It will be the fi rst time two communities from two different states have been featured on an episode
of the program, which attracts 10 million viewers every week. Gov. Haley said the selection of
Blue Ridge Log Cabins to build a home on the show is a testament both to the company’s unique
capabilities as a builder and its belief in giving back.

Dozens of Blue Ridge employees will work on the project in Fayetteville after the homeowner is
surprised at about 11 a.m. Thursday.

“This already has been an amazing experience – the entire community in Fayetteville has come
out with an incredible amount of support and excitement over this project,” Blue Ridge President
and CEO Chip Smith said. “Business leaders, elected officials, members of the media, and people
from every walk of life there have embraced our company and this project. We would not be able
to do everything that goes into this without their help, and I have been blown away by the way
Fayetteville has treated our company as if it were one of its own.”

Fayetteville, NC – June 22, 2011 – “Move that bus!” These are the words residents of Fayetteville/Cumberland County will soon be hearing.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the popular Emmy Award-winning ABC Television reality show, is bringing their famous bus to Fayetteville to surprise one very lucky local family with a complete home rebuild. Along with host Ty Pennington and the rest of the Extreme team, local volunteers and builder Blue Ridge Log Cabins will race against time to construct an entire house for a deserving family.

Fayetteville Mayor Tony Chavonne helped make the announcement at a press conference hosted by the builder earlier today in Fayetteville.

“It’s an honor that a family from Fayetteville has been chosen to receive the home of their dreams, courtesy of the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team and Blue Ridge Log Cabins,” said Mayor Chavonne. “We have been presented with a great opportunity for our citizens to join together to help one of our own and show the world that Fayetteville truly is America’s Hometown.

Log homes are rare on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and log homes built through a fully modular process have been unheard of…until now. Blue Ridge Log Cabins, an 18-year-old company, has built more than 980 log homes throughout the nation and over 500 in North Carolina.

“We couldn’t be happier to work alongside this fantastic community, and we hope everyone will turn out and join us in building an extraordinary home for this deserving family,” said Blue Ridge Log Cabins President and CEO Chip Smith.

The theme for the build, “Heroes, Hearts and Hard Hats,” was selected in honor of the patriotic pride and community spirit of America’s Hometown. Fayetteville’s “heroes” are being asked to come forward and participate in the seven-day, televised construction project. Community members, volunteers, leaders, craftsmen and business owners are all welcome.

While behind-the-scenes planning is taking place at warp speed, the name of the family and the exact location of the home will not be released until Thursday, July 14 when the design team and a crew of volunteers surprise the lucky family with their well-known, “Good Morning!” wake up call. Five families in the Fayetteville area are being considered as finalists.
