Not many San Diego-based contractors can say they've been complimented highly by Ty Pennington and the rest of the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" crew, but Bill Larson can.
Larson, the founder and president of Viking Commercial Construction, was on the show in 2004 while working for his former company.
The Wofford family at Larson's church had been going through a rough time. After the family lost its mother, Teresa, due to complications with the flu in 2000, Brian Wofford was left to fend for himself and his eight children.
Though the last time Larson had anything to do with building houses was during college while putting up house frames, his team volunteered to design and build the house -- in less than a week.
It was the first time on the television show a team of contractors finished the house early and the results did not disappoint the family.
