Season 6

Episode 24The Cerda Family

Terri Cerda worked her entire career dealing with natural disasters as an officer for F.E.M.A, but her family’s health crises has rivaled any national disaster. Her daughters, Molly and Maggie Cerda, now 8 and 6 years old, were diagnosed with Combined Immune Deficiency Disease when they were each 3 years old. This rare but serious variant of over 150 primary immune deficiency diseases is a genetic defect affects not only Molly and Maggie, but Terri suffers from the condition as well. The children lack the ability to mount a normal immune response due to the absence of many critical components of their immune system. For the Cerda children, a simple cold always becomes a life threatening lung infection.

The family purchased a home in 2004, which needed to be gutted due to nicotine build-up from the previous owners. A contractor started the job and never returned, leaving Terri to put things back together herself. While reconstructing her home she made sure everything looked good, but now everything she remodeled is falling apart because nothing was done correctly. Nicotine tar continues to build up on the window frames and walls. In addition to the cigarette odor and nicotine staining of the paint, they have a horrible problem with dust that requires them to change the filter pads in the ventilation system twice a week. In addition to the cigarette issue, the girls’ immunologist told them that they needed to remove all the carpet and minimize any gas emissions. This would cost more than $20,000 and they cannot afford it. In this episode, Ty and the team travel to Las Vegas to give this family a safe and healthy new home.

KraftMaid cabinetry was installed in many rooms in the Cerda’s new home including the kitchen, where cherry wood was selected and finished in the dark brown Peppercorn stain. In the laundry room, White Thermofoil cabinets were chosen and accented with Aluminum Round Bar pulls. An art studio was designed into the home with Natural-finished Hickory storage cabinets with Bistro glass door inserts.

In the master bathroom, KraftMaid’s Antique Chocolate with Mocha Glaze was used for the cherry wood cabinets, which were embellished with Satin Pewter Square knobs and pulls. Finally the upstairs bathroom was designed in the crisp, clean look of Dove White cabinetry with Mirage mirrored doors and Aluminum hardware.
