Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Move That Bus!

CST, was among a group of builders and suppliers selected to help in the construction of a home renovated on the hit show Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. The episode aired on Sunday, October 17, 2011.

The episode based in Crawford, New York, chronicled the surprise home renovation for the Korpai family. The family, dedicated to advocating for their daughter, Hailey, who was born with dwarfism, was chosen to have their lives changed with a dream renovation of their previously unsafe home. While their house used to have rooms that were unable to keep Hailey safe and secure, the Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. team was challenged with the task of renovating the house to meet the specifications and safety measures that Hailey’s lifestyle requires. More importantly, they wanted a place where Hailey could have the freedom and independence to live her own life.

The Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. design team had just seven days to build a brand new home for the Korpai family, one that is safe, secure and accessible for Hailey and Little People of America visitors. The Korpai family had been whisked away on a Disney Cruise vacation to the Bahamas, while Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. team leader Ty Pennington, designers Jillian Harris, Ed Sanders and Paul DiMeo, and local builders Hearthstone Commercial & Residential Contracting, as well as community volunteers, built the structure.

CST’s product donation to the Extreme Makeover:Home Edition. build included paving stones for a walkway, patio and fire pit and VERSA-LOK® retaining walls. The CST MONO-CAST® paving stones will ensure that the Korpai family will enjoy their patio for years to come without worrying that their pavers will fade and their durability will last a lifetime.

“When asked to help with the makeover near one of our manufacturing plants in Orange County, NY, CST, as we have done on many- occasions, donated the product needed to make this home more comfortable for the family. We have always taken the approach that all of us need to give back to our communities in some way,” states Steve Guida, General Manager of Concrete Stone and Tile Corporation. “It was an honor to be part of a show that has helped so many people over the years. The Extreme Makeover:Home Edition team is truly inspiring and we were happy to help.”
