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 7The Montgomery Family
When Nathan Montgomery started the ’’Salt and Light’’ ministry, an organization that provides food and clothing to local families, he had no idea how many people in his community were in need. He realized he needed to make the organization bigger and devote himself full time if he was going to help as many people as possible. So he quit his corporate job, and devoted himself to feeding the hungry in the Champaign-Urbana area.
Earning only a modest salary and spending all his free time helping the community, Nathan is unable to to fix his dilapidated home. The 1100-square-foot home is over 100 years old, and the brick foundation is crumbling. Large gaping holes in the roof have allowed animals to come in and the particle board siding is falling off in many places. In this episode, the Extreme Team travels to Illinois to rebuild the Montgomery home and allow them to focus on helping a community that desperately needs them.
KraftMaid donated custom-built cabinets for many rooms in the Montgomery’s new home including maple wood cabinets stained in Canvas in the family’s kitchen area. Cherry wood was chosen for the dining room cabinetry, which was finished in Cinnamon with Aluminum hardware accents. The laundry room was equipped with storage cabinets constructed from maple and stained in Biscotti with Coconut Glaze. Antique Brass Banded Spindle knobs and pulls adorned the doors.
A guest bathroom was designed with Quartersawn Oak cabinets finished in KraftMaid’s warm Toffee stain. Mirage glass inserts were placed in the doors and Aged Bronze pulls completed the design. Cherry wood cabinets stained in the rich Peppercorn hue outfitted the family’s master bathroom, where Aluminum Round bar pulls adorned the doors and drawers.
