Not far from me is a delightful community called Daybreak. BC would move there if given the chance (and by “given the chance” I mean “the thought of moving didn’t make his wife break out in a cold sweat”).
From their site:
In Daybreak the homes are mixed right in with all sorts of things that make life simpler and more flavorful. Like community gardens and good schools. Places to shop. Restaurants, offices, swimming pools, tennis courts, sports fields and more parks than you can shake a Frisbee® at. All connected by miles of walking/biking trails. And in the middle, a big freshwater lake.
Plus, they have gelato. EVERYTHING is better with gelato, right?
So, when I was presented with the opportunity to be involved in this project with some of my favorite people on earth in one of my favorite neighborhoods on earth, I jumped at the chance.
No brainer, right?
Over the next 90 days or so (less…the Parade of Homes starts August 3rd…ack!), Bangerter Homes, an award winning designer (Brian Clark of Brian Clark Designs), and 5 local DIY bloggers (myself, Shelley, Jen, Lara, and Amy) will take this:
and turn it into something fabulous.

(You have no idea how glad I am that video froze on Jen’s face.)
You can follow along on Twitter where we’ll be using the hash tag #DIYhouse or on any of our blogs and Facebook pages. The Daybreak blog will also have updates. So, join us..will ya? I think it’s going to be frickin’ amazing.
Full Disclosure: I am being modestly compensated for my participation in this project, I say modestly because how cool is it that I’m getting paid to design a fabulous house with 4 of my good friends? And, while I am being compensated, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. I wouldn’t have jumped in if I didn’t think it was an amazing opportunity.
