Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Season 9

Episode 7Hill Family

Staff Sergeant Allen Hill had a plan: serve his country on the Iraqi battlefield and then return home to his loving wife, Gina, and two adoring children. But in 2007, a roadside bomb shattered his plan-and his life.

He has recovered from the physical wounds, but suffers the “signature” injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars: PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Environmental triggers such as loud noises, dimly lit spaces and long hallways can instigate PTSD episodes. Some of these episodes are particularly dangerous as they can send the Sergeant running for cover. One of his family’s greatest fears is that he will run into the street during an episode and be killed.

Sergeant Hill has received a service dog, Frankie, from the Puppies Behind Bars program. This loyal pup is literally the Sergeant’s lifeline. Working with Frankie, Sergeant Hill is on the road to recovery. He has completed inpatient PTSD treatment and is ready to return home. Unfortunately, environmental triggers surround his house. His house is near both a rock quarry, where there are constant dynamite blasts, and a train yard that is a perpetual source of terrifying noises and vibrations. For Sergeant Hill to be reunited with his family, he needs a new home in a more suitable location. So actress Glenn Close joins the team in Kansas to build a haven for the Hill family.

The new home is outfitted throughout with KraftMaid cabinetry. Gresham Square (AB1C2) Cherry in Rye w/Onyx Glaze was selected for the kitchen. The master bathroom features Hartwell Square (AA6C2) Cherry in Rye, while Malibu Slab (ML) in Dove White stars in the kids’ bathroom. And the laundry room is well organized with Malibu Slab (ML) in Onyx.
