Make sure you keep us updated on when it will air so I know when to watch. And if you can, squeeze in a shout out to ECN so we know which guy is you.
So I assume this is all volunteer work? I'd be curious to know what a gig like this pays, if you are at liberty to discuss. May be best to wait until after the show to disclose. I know I'd be less hesitant to volunteer for someone making good money.

That link JPS posted is quite an eye opener. The way they installed the furnace for example.
I think I would definitely be a nice change of pace to work on something like that. I don't think I would want to run a job like that though. 24 electricians working under you, probably some you've never met. Not knowing the quality of their work and how much babysitting you might have to do. All the while Ty is screaming in a megaphone 10 feet from your ear to "hurry up people, we got a house to build." Seems like there would be a lot of code violations being rushed like that and not being able to do a good job. Not to mention working around the 100 other people trying to get their job finished as well. Good Luck.
Letting the family see the house at the end is definitely very cool though. Makes it all worthwile.

I have never seen the show but I can see it being done if other conditions are ready. I would certainly pre-sort the materials, have wire rigged on spools, devices stripped out of the packages and many pre-wired, pigtailed etc, temp power and battery tools all ready. Might be tempted to have some boxxed up for upstairs, downstairs etc, whatever I could think of so the fumbling was kept to a minimum.
