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 Harrison Family
Just one month after Gordon finally mustered up the courage to start his own cabinetry business, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, however, he used his time in the hospital to plan something special for his neighbors, The Gandys. Now everyone on the Harrisons’ street wants to pay him back for all that his family has done in the neighborhood.
While undergoing chemotherapy, Gordon spent his days thinking of ways to remodel his neighbors’ kitchen. He spent almost a year enlisting the help of other neighbors and community members, and even contacted vendors to donate materials, pulling off his own version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Taken by this gesture of kindness and selflessness, Gordon’s neighbors have rallied together to show the Harrisons that doing nice things for others always comes back in the end, but they need help in pulling off something extraordinary. Because he has spent his time building for others, Gordon’s is the last house to ever get repairs or updates, and it’s falling apart.
