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 Creasey Family
A seventh grade teacher for the past 15 years, Tricia Creasey has gone above and beyond, leading summer programs, tutoring after school and receiving the ’’Teacher of the Year’’ award. Now battling terminal cancer, she’s inspired her community by continuing to teach, while raising her three young daughters. But with mounting medical bills Tricia and William Creasey are unable to repair their tiny, unfinished home. The brick foundation is falling apart and some of the bricks are missing, leaving gaping holes. The roof leaks into their dining room and closets, and animals continually get into the home. This is especially unsafe for Tricia, who has a weakened immune system. A new home has the potential to prolong her life, providing Tricia with a safe and clean environment, allowing her to concentrate on battling her disease. Finally, with the help of Extreme Makeover, her last wish will come true, and she can see her family receive the home they deserve.
The Creasey’s home was designed with KraftMaid cabinetry in several rooms. The kitchen was outfitted with cherry cabinets finished in Vintage Onyx with Copper hardware. The laundry room was equipped with storage cabinets stained in Chocolate with Bistro glass inserts set into the doors. Venetian Bronze Rustic knobs were selected to complete this room. In the master bathroom, a Natural finish was given to the Rustic Birch cabinets, while Dove White maple cabinetry was chosen for the upstairs bathroom.
