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 24The Peters Family
In search for the American dream, the Peter family from Guyana had it all until the day their house burned down. Now abandoned by their insurance, this family has been forced to live among the ashes.
Emigrating from Guyana in 1996, the Peter family struggled long and hard to get their Visa to achieve their dream of coming to America to build a foundation for a better life for their growing family. The family’s dream would be shattered in one moment in 2004 when their three level colonial home burst into flames leaving them hopeless and without their home. After six months of living in temporary housing, their insurance company dropped them and they were forced to move back into their home which is unlivable with no heat or hot water and very little electricity. On top of that their one ’’working’’ bathroom doesn’t have running hot water.
In this episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the design team heads to the New York area to help a family rise from the ashes and live the American dream.
The Peters are no longer short on bathrooms, with four of them now completely outfitted in KraftMaid custom cabinetry. The master bathroom was converted with KraftMaid’s popular beaded solid raised style maple cabinets in the elegant Cognac finish and Venetian Bronze Leaf drawer pulls.
Both kitchen areas in the Peter’s new home were dramatically restyled to accommodate their large family. The first was remodeled in solid raised cherry cabinets finished in KraftMaid’s premium Black Glaze finish. The additional kitchen area was furnished with roman solid raised cabinetry in the rich, warm Kaffe stain, completed with Distressed French Lace door knobs and drawer pulls.
