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 1Jubilee / Marshall Family
Ty and the team visit the White House, where First Lady Michelle Obama offers her support to the remarkable Marshall family and the folks at the Steps–N–Stages Jubilee House in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Saddened that so many of our troops are now living on the streets they risked their lives to protect, Barbara Marshall, a Navy veteran, established the Jubilee House for homeless female veterans using her own money. Along with housing three women veterans and their children, the Jubilee House works with over 30 homeless women veterans seeking assistance each week.
Unfortunately, Barbara can only do so much: they need more space to house and train more vets, and the current house has foundation problems. And Barbara wants to live there, so she can be more available to the women, and have a space where her son, who is developmentally delayed, can thrive.
So, with the help of the First Lady and hundreds of military and civilian volunteers, Ty and the team build a new Jubilee House, an efficient, eco–friendly log home in classic American Heritage style. The entire West Wing of the house is dedicated to Barbara and her family. And the added space allows Barbara to house at least twice as many people as before, with a second full kitchen upstairs.
Several rooms in the new Jubilee House have been customized with KraftMaid cabinetry. One of the kitchens features Dove White cabinets with Satina Glass inserts; in the other, Sage cabinets with Cocoa Glaze reign. The master bathroom features maple cabinets in Dove White with Cocoa Glaze and Ancient Bronze French Farm pulls. Another bathroom is also outfitted with Dove White cabinets and Aluminum pulls.
