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 9

Episode 11Johnson Family

At 16, Wyzhir Johnson is as charismatic as they come. He's always had a knack for design and dreamed of being a construction worker and home designer. He’s repaired and painted homes for many people in his small town. But last Christmas Eve, after months of working diligently with his grandfather to fix up his family’s dilapidated home, his coat caught in a miter saw, severing his left hand. Despite multiple surgeries, doctors were unable to preserve his hand.

But Wyzhir’s outlook has remained positive. Determined to return to his daily life as soon as possible, he went back to school shortly after the accident and is adapting and moving on with the loving support of his family. Not only is he facing his new challenges head on, Wyzhir is a firm believer in the importance of giving back to his community. He serves as a mentor in a program at his high school. He is also passionate about the local history, raising money for an organization that is preserving an historic African-American school.

To honor this young man’s dedication, Ty and the team head to Maryland to put his dreams back in reach. Incorporating Wyzhir’s creative vision, they build a beautiful new home for the family. Among the special features of the new house are KraftMaid cabinets, including Slab - Solid (ML) in Rye in the kitchen and laundry room, and Slab - Solid (AW) in Peppercorn in the master bathroom.
