Experts Jason Cameron, host of Desperate Landscapes, and Anitra Mecadon of Mega Dens, are also on hand to transform this nineteenth-century home, situated on 21 acres along the scenic Medomak River, into a dream vacation retreat.

"This is truly a unique experience for our viewers," says Grundy. "Nowhere else on television can viewers interact with our experts, weigh -in on the renovation and then enter for a chance to win the home they helped design. Our commitment to viewer engagement is what separates DIY Network from everyone else!"

Blog Cabin, an original groundbreaking multimedia experience launched in 2007, asks Internet users and viewers to vote and blog on the design features of the ultimate vacation home and offers a chance for one lucky viewer to win it. Throughout the series, Grundy documents the miraculous transformation of this, four bedroom, 2-bath, 2,500 square foot home that boasts 450 feet of waterfront property.
