What's Happening

A custom home can be expensive to build if done in a conventional way. Homeowners have been personalizing their homes on their own for years and finding innovative ways to create wow and develop wonderful spaces that don’t cost an arm and a leg. The DIY Blogger House at Daybreak aims to take that creative spirit and infuse it into the construction of a new home from the very start. The home will be built by Bangerter Homes and will be featured in the 2012 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Daybreak is teaming up with the builder, and an award winning interior designer who will lead a team of 5 local bloggers to design the interior of the home. Each of the bloggers will design one of the rooms or be in charge of certain areas of the house, while the designer will ensure that the home’s overall design maintains a cohesive flow and character. The bloggers will chronicle their experience and the process of designing the home on their blogs beginning in May. They will have less than 90 days to work with the home builder to develop and implement a concept in time for the Parade of Homes judging on August 1st. The home will be revealed to the general public during the Parade of Homes which begins on August 3rd and runs through August 18th. The home will be available for sale once the Parade of Homes has ended. In addition to the DIY Blogger house, there will be 6 other Parade Homes in Daybreak from Destination Homes, Holmes Homes, Ivory Homes, Rainey Homes, Richmond American Homes, and Sego Homes.
The concept for the DIY home’s interior will evolve as the design team works together to define and create the space. The exterior of the home will be done in a classic Victorian theme in keeping with the timeless architectural styles that Daybreak has become known for. The two-story home will be approximately 3200 sq. ft. total with 3-4 bedrooms and a finished basement. Additional details will be made available via the participating blogs as well as Daybreakutah.com’s own blog, so follow Daybreak and the design team on social media to track the progress and weigh in along the way.
The project team was announced during the Welcome Dinner at Daybreak’s Breathing Space Blogger Retreat.
