DIY Blog Cabin Sweepstakes

Do you daydream of a country getaway? You could win the home of your dreams through the DIY Blog Cabin giveaway. This annual sweepstakes is hosted by the DIY Network—a sister site to HGTV and the Food Network and has become incredibly popular since its inception.

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:As of this writing, the most current location is in Winter Haven, Florida. A 1920s bungalow style home has actually been moved from its original location to the new one. As mentioned, the DIY blog has video teasers of many of the details of the home and property both before and after completion of each step. The interaction is part of the fun. Besides the anticipation of finding out what changes win, you learn a lot about the history of the house and the local area. Visit the official DIY Blog Cabin site for more info and the most current contest.
