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.

Season 7

Episode 5The Terpenning Family

Crippled by polio during infancy and abandoned by his American G.I. father in Vietnam, James Terpenning nevertheless considers himself one of the luckiest people in the world. While growing up in America as an adopted son in an Ohio family, James competed in wheelchair sports and later represented the U.S. at the Paralympics, where he earned both gold and silver medals. He continues to serve his country in civilian technical support for the Air Force and by helping disabled veterans.

James and his brother Joe, who are both in wheelchairs, find it extremely difficult to function in the Terpenning’s house. There are water leaks from a flood in the basement and one of the water-damaged walls was covered up. The family’s heating system is very old, and the bathrooms and hallways are too small for wheelchairs. James would like to play outside with his kids, but he cannot push his wheelchair outside in the backyard. In this episode of Extreme Makeover, the team comes to the aid of this inspirational role model and his family to provide a safe new home customized with wheelchair accessibility.

KraftMaid provided custom cabinets for many rooms in the Terpenning’s new home. Warm neutrals and Satin Silver hardware were used in the kitchen and laundry rooms where cherry wood was chosen, stained in Canvas in the kitchen and Willow in the laundry area. KraftMaid’s Vintage Onyx was selected for the living room cabinets, where Bistro glass inserts with Mullion frames in highlight the doors. Finally, James and Shannon’s new master bath was designed with cherry cabinetry, stained in Peppercorn and complemented by Yorkshire glass inserts and Aged Pewter Beaded pulls.
