From the lot and floor plan all the way down to the bathroom tile and wall color, millions logged on to DIYNetwork.com to participate in “citizen design” to help create a mountainside vacation home. Built by a roster of DIY Network’s expert hosts, the process will be documented in the third season of DIY Network’s series, Blog Cabin. The first-ever interactive home building series premieres August 20 at 9 p.m. ET and airs every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET.
In January, viewers were invited to DIYNetwork.com to vote on more than 50 different design features for the fabulous mountainside property. With nearly four million votes cast and thousands of bloggers participating in ongoing interactive dialogue, DIY Network viewers can watch the walls take shape next month in each half-hour installment of the 10-episode series, as well as log on to DIYNetwork.com from August 14-October 2 for a chance to win the cabin, which will be given away to one lucky sweepstakes winner in late fall.
Licensed contractor and home improvement expert Amy Matthews will host the third season. The series premiered in 2007 online and on-air. From September 1 to November 1, tours of this year’s Blog Cabin are open to the public.
