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 6McPhail Family

As a young, newly married couple, C.J. and Lindsay McPhail decided they wanted to spend their lives helping others. They started the Southern Oregon Chapter of Sparrow Clubs, a non-profit organization that helps children with medical issues by pairing them with a local school that adopts them as their school’s “Sparrow.” C.J. found himself speaking to students, businesses, and anyone who would listen about the incredible power Sparrow Clubs gives to both students and sparrows. His ability as a public speaker motivated thousands of students to fundraise, perform service work, and create programs, all in the name of their sparrow.

But C.J. and Lindsay never imagined they would one day need help from the organization to which they had devoted so much of their time. Soon after moving to Portland to run a chapter there, their oldest son Sawyer was diagnosed with a form of Autism, and their second oldest son Thatcher began to start showing signs of Autism as well. With their children regressing, the family moved back to Medford, Oregon to live on a 50-acre family property next to Lindsay’s parents. The boys showed great progress but still faced many challenges. Then Sawyer became a Sparrow, putting a face on Autism and bringing awareness to over 900 students in his adopted school.

While the property and the outdoors are great for the children’s progress, the house is not built for their needs. So Ty and team head to Oregon to build a home for the McPhails where their kids can thrive, while allowing C.J. and Lindsay to focus on what they do best: helping others.
