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 16The Augustin Family
Amber Augustin started up her volunteer photography business, ’’Tiny Works of Heart’’, which was inspired by the premature birth of her third child, son Lane. The challenge of Lane’s birth and the family's emotional and financial struggles during this period inspired Amber to volunteer her time and talent as a photographer taking pictures of babies born in the neonatal intensive care unit. Amber started the free service to give families a chance to professionally capture their time with their fragile child. However on Father’s Day 2007, the Augustin family’s life was turned inside out when a flood ravaged their home in Keller, Texas. The damage was so extensive that the home was entirely destroyed, as well as Amber’s photography studio. Now it is up to Ty and the Extreme Makeover designers to rebuild their home and photography studio, which brought joy into the lives of hundreds of families affected by premature birth.
The Augustin’s new kitchen was outfitted with KraftMaid custom cabinetry in Honey Spice with Mocha Highlights. The hickory wood cabinets were accented with Venetian Bronze hardware and Bistro style glass inserts. The laundry room as well as the master bedroom were designed with maple wood cabinets stained in KraftMaid’s Dove White and accented with Brushed Pewter pulls. The hall bathroom was equipped with cabinetry from KraftMaid’s Venicia line. The Corina door style was selected and finished in the glossy black Onyx stain.
