DIY Network's Blog Cabin invites viewers and fans to help design the 2013 "Blog Cabin," and hopefully win the finished product. This year's renovation project is a home on North Carolina's "Crystal Coast."
Viewers will vote on all of the major design elements, including color palette, fixtures and amenities, according to a news release.
Last year, almost 6 million votes were cast during the People’s Choice voting period to determine the design elements of the “Blog Cabin.” This year’s online voting period begins now at DIYNetwork.com/BlogCabinVote and continues throughout the spring.

Fans can also vote on non-construction related aspects of the cabin. DIYNetwork.com will feature weekly polls for design decisions for the project, including kitchen and bathroom design details and finishing touches for various rooms in the home, according to the news release.
Every step of the home’s transformation will be featured in the new season of Blog Cabin premiering Monday, July 29 at 9:30 p.m. In addition to voting online for the home’s unique renovation elements at DIYNetwork.com/BlogCabinVote, viewers can enter two Blog Cabin sweepstakes. The main sweepstakes will award one viewer the grand prize: the newly renovated “Blog Cabin.” Fans can also enter to win the program’s “cabin comforts” sweepstakes, in which one winner will receive a duplicate set of the amenities chosen for this year’s “Blog Cabin.”
