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 10The Lewis Family
Over a year ago, Bruce and Paulita Lewis decided to take out a low interest loan to improve upon their small home in El Segundo, California. Progress was slow and of poor quality, which led the heavy winter rains to cause a cave in of their roof, destrying all of the family’s furniture and personal belongings. When confronted, the contractor left town with the Lewis’ remaining $40,000.
As they struggled to rebuild their home, they learned the devastating news that Paulita has stage IV cancer. While recovering from surgeries and chemotherapy at her mother-in-law’s tiny apartment, Bruce’s police officer friends and neighbors have tried to pitch in the rebuild the Lewis home. When the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team heard this family’s story they decided to come in and complete the job that should have been done over a year ago Ð all within one week!
Both the master and children’s bathrooms were redesigned using KraftMaid’s popular Mandolay cabinet door style. While the master bath was finished in Hazelnut Glaze with stainless steel door pulls, the children’s bath was completed in the darker Chocolate Glaze, accented with bronze pulls and knobs. Oatmeal Glaze finished Lindsay style cabinets were installed in the laundry room, providing ample storage space. And finally, the dining room was outfitted with white Sheridan cabinets embellished with Barnstead glass inserts.
