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 6The Hill Family
Tim Hill was a promising pro-boxer, but the contender’s dreams were shattered when he broke his back while working on a construction site. Unable to box anymore, Tim went back to school and earned a degree in Social Work. It was during this time that he realized the need for structure and discipline in the lives of the young men in his community. That is when he started the Geneva Boxing Team.
Aleem is a very special member of the team. Coming from a family with 23 children, Aleem was destined to get lost in the system. But Tim and his wife Michelle knew they couldn’t let this wonderful kid become a statistic. They took him into their family and were awarded legal custody. In addition to Aleem, Tim and Michelle have three children of their own that they are raising in a 200 year-old farm house that is showing its age. The Hill’s dream is to tear down the old barn on their property and building their own boxing gym to help more kids in their community.
In this episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, the team travels to New York to rebuild a home and gym for a family gives so much to their community.
The Hill family’s home was redesigned with KraftMaid custom cabinetry in many rooms including the kitchen, where Dove White maple cabinets were installed and completed with Aluminum Round Bar pulls. Moire style glass inserts accented the cabinet doors. In the laundry room, Biscotti with Cocoa Glaze finish was chosen for the maple cabinetry, with Brushed Pewter knobs and pulls. Tim and Michelle’s master bath was also outfitted with Dove White cabinets and Satin Nickel Dog Bone pulls adding the finishing touch. In the new gym, Coressa cabinets were chosen from KraftMaid’s Venicia line. Onyx Gloss and Chianti stains were selected, while Silk glass inserts and Stainless Steel hardware accented the sleek look of these cabinets.
