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 5The Urban Family
Trisha Urban suffered a terrible tragedy with the untimely death of her husband, Andy, on the same day that their daughter was born. Due to a pre-existing heart condition, Andy was denied health care coverage, which ultimately lead to his demise. Trisha refuses to let her husband’s death be in vain by rallying for heath care reform. This single mother struggles to work two jobs and raise her baby in the 300-year-old crumbling log cabin that was Andy’s dream to remodel. Extreme Makeover travels to Hamburg, Pennsylvania to design the dream home that Trisha and her late husband, Andy, had once hoped for.
Hickory wood cabinets in the Natural finish were built in the kitchen, laundry and mud room, keeping with the log cabin feel of the the Urban’s original home. Aged Bronze knobs and pulls were selected to embellish the laundry cabinets, with Barnstead inserts highlighting the doors. KraftMaid’s Biscotti with Cocoa Glaze, a cream-tones painted finish was chosen for the kitchen island cabinets. Copper knob and cup pulls accented the kitchen with a farmhouse feel. Finally, a comfortable window seat in the guest room was constructed with birch cabinets beneath, finished in the rich brown Cognac.
