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 12Rhodes Family

The tight-knit Rhodes family has lived in their neighborhood for over 5 generations. James is the main breadwinner, having worked for over twenty years at the local Pepsi plant. He is a leader in the community where he raised three children. So is his wife, Jackie, who is known in the neighborhood as "Big Momma," because she looks after her grandchildren and neighborhood children while their parents are at work.

But their circumstances changed in August 2010 when their oldest daughter Mikia was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Mikia was told she needed emergency brain surgery and given a 50/50 chance of surviving it. Recovery would take unknown months. Suddenly unable to continue working, Mikia’s parents welcomed her and her four children into their one-bedroom, 900-square-foot home.

Surgeons successfully removed the cancerous tumor. Mikia has made progress and is eager to return to work, but ongoing difficulties leave her reliant on her parents’ daily support. The family’s challenges are increased by the fact that the size and condition of their current home is not sufficient for a family of seven.

So Ty and the team head to Columbus, Ohio, to deliver a special Christmas gift to the whole Rhodes family: a home that can house three generations. The new home is graced with KraftMaid cabinetry in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. Square Recessed Panel - Veneer (AA6M) Maple in Dove White is featured in the new kitchen, with Square Raised Panel - Solid (PKM) Maple in Onyx in the master bathroom and Slab - Solid (ML) Maple in Dove White in the laundry room.
