Watch the Blog Cabin 2014 Special Tonight!

Tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET, don’t miss the Blog Cabin 2014 one-hour special with Chris Grundy, as he helms the renovation of a rundown prohibition-era bungalow.

For the first time ever, the Blog Cabin home was moved from an urban lot to a beautiful lakeside spot on Lake Hamilton in Winter Haven, Florida. But before it could even be moved safely, and with as little impact on the community, the crew had to disassemble parts of the house. Browse before-and-after pictures >>

You don’t want to miss the enormous transformation at Blog Cabin 2014 tonight on DIY Network.

And don’t forget, you have until Friday, September 12th at 5:00 p.m. ET to enter for your chance to win!
