Blog Cabin is different than your run of the mill sweepstakes. It provides an interactive experience that makes it an event. It begins with a fixer upper near a dream location—a beautiful lakeside, the Smokey Mountains, a beach getaway just to name a few.
A team of expert renovators and designers are assembled to tackle each room of the house, the exterior, and the property to transform it into a gorgeous vacation home. Viewers are given the opportunity to vote on what renovations should be done each step of the way. You can vote several times a day. The suggestion with the most votes wins, and you get to see the ongoing updates in videos and time-lapse photos on the DIY blog and share your opinion about the changes being made. After everything is complete, you have a chance to win the home as a retreat or the place that could become your new full-time home.
Some of the homes given away in the past have been in scenic locations which include:
- Atlantic, North Carolina
- Waldoboro, Maine
- Matthews, Virginia
- Bethel Springs, New York
