MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition crew has rolled out of East Texas. But, before they left, they did a little extra work to fix-up the neighborhood.

Most of the Carrs' neighbors allowed production trucks to park on their land and crowds to stand in their yards.

The neighborhood is almost back to normal thanks to local business who offered their clean-up services. Yard were re-seeded and fertilized, and all of the trash was picked up and hauled away. Despite the mess, neighbors say they miss the company.

"The noise level wasn't too high," said Ernie Devauld, a neighbor, "I got used to it, what there was. The first night afterwards it kind of bothered me. I missed the noise."

"It seems like a ghost town over here now," said Doug Sanford, a neighbor. "We really missed all the people, all the good people that helped."

Neighbors say the traffic in the area has picked up since the makeover. Lots of people want to get a glimpse of the new home.
