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 23The Jacobo Family
Michelle and Jesus Jacobo believe very strongly that family comes first. So strongly, in fact that when Michelle’s sister lost custody of her children, the Jacobos refused to allow them to get lost in the system. Despite having a full house with four children of their own, Michelle and Jesus petitioned the court and brought their five nieces and nephews into their family. But this act of love was not without sacrifice. The Jacobo’s home was already bursting at the seams with six people sharing the mere 912 square foot house. Michelle and Jesus have created a makeshift bedroom in the garage and now this family of 12 is making the best of things.
In this episode of Extreme Makeover the team travels to Missouri to help this deserving couple accommodate for the large addition to their family.
KraftMaid cabinets were custom built for the Jacobo’s new home starting in the kitchen, where Quartersawn Oak wood was finished in the deep brown Peppercorn stain and accented with Aluminum Round Bar pulls. Both the laundry room and the boys’ bathroom sport the crisp grey tones of Pewter Glaze with the added touch of Glisten glass inserts for the laundry room cabinet doors.
The two girls’ bathrooms were designed with KraftMaid maple cabinetry, the first in a rich red Garnet Glaze, with Satin Nickel hardware. The second ladies room, again in maple, was finished in Vanilla Bean Glaze and Satin Nickel Dog Bone knobs and pulls adorn the cabinets. For the remaining two bathrooms, Wedgewood Glaze was chosen with Brushed Pewter and Stainless Steel hardware complimenting the traditional blue cabinetry.
