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 21The Jordan Family
Faced with the devastating losses of their daughter in 1995 to domestic violence and then losing their son eight years later to a drunk driver, Monica and Brady Jordan responded not with bitterness or self-pity but with dedicated, passionate service to their community. They are now raising their three grandchildren, are strong advocates of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and open their home to more than 100 youngsters each week who need a safe haven to eat, sleep, socialize and be mentored. But their house has gone without repair in years. Their bathroom leaks into their kitchen and some of the house siding has blown off. Thousands of meals have been cooked in a kitchen that’s falling apart, has no overhead lighting, rotting counters and a stove that barely works.
Ty Pennington and his Extreme Makeover designers step in and help the Jordan family with a new, safe home where they can continue to devote themselves to protecting and guiding countless others in need.
The Jordan’s new home was built with custom cabinetry by KraftMaid. In the kitchen and laundry rooms, maple wood was chosen and stained in KraftMaid’s Biscotti with Coconut Glaze. Pewter Ring and Bail pulls were the hardware of choice, while the cabinet door were accented with Bistro glass inserts.
In the recreation room, cabinets were selected from KraftMaid’s Venicia line. The Capri door style was chosen and finished in Tygris Gloss, a deep brown sleek finish. Stainless Steel Bar pulls were attached to complete the look of the European style cabinetry.
