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 7The Marshall-Spreier Family
In 2002, Jane Marshall’s husband of 14 years left her and she found herself raising eight young children alone. After the divorce, the family knew it had to do more if they were going to stay together. In addition to her teaching position, Jane and the kids started a family cleaning business to make extra money. Just before Christmas in 2008, Jane learned she had stage-4 breast cancer. The following summer, a faulty dryer vent caught some clothes on fire destroying the family’s basement and heat and smoke damaged the upstairs. Insurance won’t cover the more than $30K it will take to replace the power, water and gas systems - all of which were destroyed in the fire. In this episode, the Extreme Makeover team travels to Idaho to rebuild a safe a healthy home for this large family.
KraftMaid cabinetry was used in the design of many rooms of the Marshall-Spreier family’s new home. In the kitchen, Vintage Dove White cherry cabinets were built with Brushed Pewter knobs and cup pulls accented the doors and drawers. KraftMaid’s Natural stain was applied to cabinets in the laundry room, where Bistro glass inserts were fitted into the doors and Oil Rubbed Bronze hardware was selected to complete to room. Cognac, a warm brown finish, and Aged Bronze hardware were chosen for cabinetry in the great room as well as the master bathroom. Finally, the studio kitchen was equipped with maple cabinets in Willow, a light green painted finish.
