Michelle Obama, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'On the season premiere of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC), Ty Pennington and his design team took on the task of rebuilding the Steps-n-Stages Jubilee House for women veterans in need of assistance or a place to stay.

In doing so, they touched close to a cause that means a lot to First Lady Michelle Obama, and so she got involved.

In fact, she even made the trip to the build site on the day the family returned to help with some last-minute touches, check out the final product and meet the woman behind Jubilee House.

One thing Pennington was particularly proud of was his use of the vacuum tubes you usually see at drive-up bank centers. Only he put one end of it in a vegetable garden greenhouse and the other into the kitchen. Sure, it's frivolous and probably unnecessary, but even Mrs. Obama agreed it was fun.
