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 23The Williams Family
In this episode of Extreme Makeover, the team travels to Georgia to meet Jeremy and Jennifer Williams, whose son, Jacob, was diagnosed with Spina Bifida before he was born. Then, several years after Jacob’s birth, Jeremy was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Now the home the Williams bought 13 years ago is falling apart around them. The foundation in the home is cracking and sinking, one of the lower retaining walls is broken, and they have a mold problem due to their A/C leaking into their walls. This is very bad for Jacob who is susceptible to infection from mold. They cannot afford to make the necessary repairs, and in a short time Jeremy will no longer be able to work. In addition to mounting repairs, the home is too small to accommodate two disabled family members. With the help of EMHE, the Williams family will have a home where Jeremy can make the most out of his time with his family, knowing that his wife and children are safe and that Jacob can grow up comfortably and independently.
KraftMaid custom cabinetry was selected for several rooms in the Williams’ new home. In the kitchen, cherry wood cabinets were stained in Vintage Onyx and embellished with Stainless Steel hardware. Natural finished Hickory wood was chosen for the laundry room cabinetry, where Aluminum pulls and Satina glass inserts accented the doors. Josie’s bathroom was designed with the warmth of KraftMaid’s Cognac finish to the maple cabinets, while a second bathroom was outfitted with White painted cabinets completed by Satin Nickel drawer pulls.
