American Dream Builders - $50 Lowe's Gift Card Giveaway



Here's what I know about TV, based entirely on scrolling through the TV guide thingy: People love reality competition shows and people love shows about buying or decorating houses. NBC is pretty smart - they have a new show hosted by designer Nate Berkus (who came to fame on Oprah) and produced by the same people who do The Bachelor and Survivor. The idea behind the show is that 12 designers and home builders are competing for the title of Ultimate Dream Builder and a snazzy cash prize. There's lots of extra info on the show's website!



American Dream Builders is premiering this weekend on Sunday the 23rd! SO SOON! Nate and the other judges will be live tweeting during the show!


Of course, as much fun as it is to watch cool renovations and competitions, winning something for yourself is even MORE fun! There are two ways to win something awesome for yourself! Wanna know how?

First, you can enter here to win $100,000 in gift cards from Lowes, plus a design consultation with the winner of American Dream Builders! As of right now, you can enter it daily by filling out the form, but starting on the 23rd they'll be offering the opportunity to earn 5 bonus entries by submitting a photo of a project you're working on for your home. (If you follow the show on Facebook and Twitter, there are even more opportunities for prizes from Lowe's and American Dream Builders, too!)

Second, I'm doing a giveaway for a $50 Lowe's gift card right here on this post! Just enter using the Rafflecopter widget below! (You may have to give it a second to load.) All entries are optional, so feel free to do as many as you'd like to increase your chances of winning! The giveaway will end on April 1, 2014 at 11:59 pm Eastern and is open to the USA. An important note - there are several blogs hosting similar giveaways right now, but each household can only win one Lowe's gift card via these blog giveaways. You're welcome to enter as many as you like to increase your odds of winning one, though!

A dream home makeover to me would be updated kitchen and bathrooms throughout the house. It would include fresh paint and new carpeting throughout the house. And to get extra greedy, new energy efficient storm window, maintenance free vinyl siding and some fresh landscaping with a new fence.

1froglegs said...

New bed and will redo the kitchen - make it bigger. Thanks!

adagherkin said...

I might think about tuning in.

suburban prep said...

Oh I would start with the kitchen and go from there. I would love new counter tops and then a new floor in the kitchen as well. I think I would love new carpeting in the rest of the area of the home that has carpeting. I would love a new bathroom in the master. I would also love the lighting in the house to be good. The closets leave something to be desired now.

suburban prep said...

I hope to watch the program. I love to see the finished project.

Dorothy Teel said...

WOW, I would love to win the $100,000 prize and I would take out all of my old carpeting in the house, and put in hardwood or cork floors, it would be wonderful then we will work on my kitchen..

Dorothy Teel said...

Yeap watched the show last night and I like that neighborhood picks the final winner and not just Nate, I also think it was fair last night because that horrible bathroom cabinet was tacky and the fact it was not finished was bad. I like that they made separate bedrooms for the boy and girls. Will watch again next week Way to Go Nate.

Tamra said...

My dream home makeover would start with knocking out a wall and expanding our too-tiny kitchen! Also lots of paint, and some great statement furniture pieces.

Michael Fedelem said...

I'd buy 437 two x fours and start framing a house for me and the kittys. And then build a lil kitty house for yours!

Tammy Woodall said...

I would renovate my entire kitchen from top to bottom - new cabinets, counter tops, flooring, lighting, and new appliances.

Tammy Woodall said...

Yes, I'm definitely going to be watching the show.

Lisa Hollinger said...

If i won $100,000 I would get solar panels and build a porch and a large garden in my yard.

dawn keenan said...

I would replace every fixture, bath, floor, ceiling whatever that is currently beige to bright white and bright colors.

We would redo our bathroom that is so hopeless at this point.

Darlene Lehman said...

Dawn Monroe said...

I missed the show but msybe next Sunday.

Marti Tabora said...

My dream would be to add a really large room on to my house and a nice deck in the back. I would also repair my leaking laundry room roof.

Kim said...

I would love to have a super posh kitchen and a home theater!! Also a shower I could get lost in... lol

Alisha Hodges said...

If I won the grand prize, I wouldn't want anything extravagant; I think I'd just want to makeover the outside of my house (with siding or something) or build a room on, if possible. Once I did that, I'd go from there -- touch ups maybe.

Alisha Hodges said...

We don't watch TV at our house, so I won't be watching the show.

Unknown said...

Our American Dream Home is a log cabin style with stone floors, and I would love a larger kitchen and some big closets.

If I had the $100,000 I would do so many things to my home to make it bigger and beautiful. First the kitchen, added countertop and cabinets, new backsplash and knock down back wall to extend the room into a walk in pantry with french doors to a new deck. Would update so many other rooms too

GeorgiaBeckman said...

I would start with the bathroom. Ours is really outdated & small. I would expand it & put in a jacuzzi tub for sure. And I really need some storage options, so I would purchase or build some storage spaces. I would put in wall to ceiling bookcases in the library & get the chaises I've been wanting. (and an area rug) Then I'd work on some outdoor sprucing up.
