Bill and Kristy Stratton were struggling to feel at home in their Connecticut abode.

The youngest of their two sons, seven-year-old Nicholas, has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and the couple’s closed-off floor plan made it difficult to navigate their day-to-day lives.

When NASCAR driver Joey Logano heard about race car superfan Nicholas’s plight, he and his foundation teamed up with NBC TV’S George to the Rescue to transform the family’s cramped quarters into a free-flowing dream home.

Before, the 1940s build was a dark and closed-off space.


After general contractor Larry Newquist and designer Kimberly Levin got their hands on it, though, the house boasts an open layout, modern furnishings and an overall brighter aesthetic.


Although the updated décor is certainly a plus for the Strattons, the biggest highlights are the barrier-free sightlines and organizational tools that help Nicholas’s parents and 13-year-old brother, Nathan, keep him safe.

Host George Oliphant also built in another surprise for Nicholas — a meet and greet with Logano and a trip to the New Hampshire Speedway.
