Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
It all began with a television producer’s phone call asking KraftMaid to help a deserving family in need of a fresh start. Seasons later, we are proud to remain the exclusive cabinetry provider of ABC’s award-winning program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Episode 4The Carter Family
Julie Carter and her daughter Jade suffer from Chiari Malformation, a rare disorder that is often misdiagnosed. Julie has become a pioneer in this disease, helping thousands worldwide to get correct the diagnosis and offers support and compassion. She produces a monthly newsletter to patients, and also started Chiari People of Montana, a local support group.
The Carter family currently lives in a refurbished chicken coop. The exterior walls are buckling and some of the windows are cracked which makes for a brutal Montana winter. Julie and Jade’s medical bills from their multiple surgeries leave no chance that their house will ever be fixed. In this episode of Extreme Makeover, the team travels to Montana to rebuild a home for this long-suffering family and provide more room for them to continue to help others with this disease.
The family’s new laundry room was outfitted with KraftMaid custom cabinetry in the Natural finish with Matte Nickel Suitcase pulls accenting the clean new look. Julie’s master bath was designed with KraftMaid maple cabinets in Bisque Glaze with Bistro glass inserts accenting the doors. Both the kitchen and guest bath were remodeled with cherry wood cabinets finished in Kaffe, a deep brown tone with Barnstead glass door inserts in the kitchen and Satin Nickel decorative hardware in the bathroom.
