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 12The Lampe Family
The Lampe family’s tree service business has been hit hard by a series of unfortunate circumstances and on-the-job injuries, forcing them to slow their pace and turn down work. In spite of it all, Jeff and Shelley Lampe work hard each day to keep their family afloat. They converted their garage into a makeshift wrestling gym to train and mentor young people in their community. The Lampes’ six children have outgrown the dilapidated house, and youngest daughter Angela, who has Down syndrome, needs a safe haven and a place to play. In this episode, the Extreme Team travels to Kentucky to rebuild a home for this close-knit family.
Custom cabinetry by KraftMaid abounds in the Lampe family’s new home including the kitchen and mud room, where Natural finished cherry wood cabinets were designed for ample storage space. Dove White, a painted finish, was applied to maple cabinets in the laundry room, with Aluminum Round Bar pulls and Silk glass inserts accented the wood. Two bathrooms were outfitted with maple cabinets in KraftMaid’s popular Honey Spice stain, with Stainless Steel hardware embellishing the doors and drawers. In the study, Peppercorn on cherry wood was used to craft the cabinetry, which was completed with Aluminum Integrated pulls.
