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 9The Stockdale Family
Ryan and Karia Stockdale are high school sweethearts who married right out of school. They have four beautiful children who all suffer from an extremely rare disease, Eosinophilic Enteropathy. EE is a rare white blood cell disease that attacks proteins, preventing the ingestion and digestion of food. It also affects and causes disease of the lungs, kidneys, blood, intestines, and immune system.
Karia stays home and cares for the kids. She deals with medical issues of her own due to a complication from her last pregnancy. Ryan and Karia are active members of their community and are passionate about adoption. Karia was adopted and hopes to adopt one day in the future. They are hoping that all of their children are able to live full lives, but they also realize that they may not be possible.
In this episode of Extreme Makeover, the team travels to Middleton, Idaho to build a new home for a family coping with multiple medical problems and mounting medical bills.
The Stockdale’s new home was outfitted with KraftMaid’s Venicia line of cabinets in the kitchen, breakfast nook and pantry areas. The sleek look of the Lucerne door style was chosen and finished in Bianco Satin with Brushed Pewter hardware accenting the doors.
The children’s Jack and Jill bathroom was designed using cherry wood cabinets stained in Kaffe, a rich brown hue with Satin Nickel Tapered Bow pulls completing the room. Finally the utility room was crafted in traditional maple cabinets, finished in Buttercream with >Brushed Pewter Cup pulls.
