HOME RENOVATION UPDATES
Renovation Planning Continues: It’s Moving Along!
by admin | August 14, 2019 |
Following the July 15 surprise winner reveal of BILD Lethbridge Region’s $20K Home Renovation Giveaway to Katie Taylor and her family, the renovation team have been busy taking measurements, designing the space and gathering materials. On August 14 our supporting sponsors met with Katie Taylor to reveal the final design of her kitchen. On August 27 Katie will meet with a designer to review colour palette and design elements so she truly gets the kitchen of her dreams. It is getting so excited.
Based on significant donations from our members, Katie and her family will not only get an entirely new kitchen (redesign, cabinets, floorings, window, paint, sink, faucet and lighting) but also a complete set of new appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave), french doors to the backyard, paint and baseboards in living room, and a special surprise that will be revealed shortly.
Thank you to our sponsors! You guys are changing lives.
Home Reno Winner 2019
Congratulations to Katie Taylor !
We’re excited to finally announce the winner of our first Home Reno Giveaway! Congratulations to Katie Taylor, who will receive a renovation of her kitchen worth up to $20,000. This renovation is made possible by the generous donations of our BILD – Lethbridge Members!
Katie Taylor is a single mom of two boys, one who has cerebral palsy. Many years ago, renovations were started but never finished due to a change in her circumstances. She submitted her application in the hope of redoing her kitchen in a way that supports her son with special needs who loves to help in the kitchen. She wants to have a kitchen that has counterspace and functional storage, both of which are currently lacking. The kitchen is the hub of a home and she would like this current non-functioning space to be a place where she and her boys can cook together and have friends gather.
This was a contest put together by Building Industry & Land Development Association (BILD) – Lethbridge Region Members. Our members donated their time, labour, products, and money in order to give back to our community and provide one worthy applicant the opportunity to win up to $20K renovation. The contest was launched at the Home & Garden Show in March and we received hundreds of applications over the subsequent 13 weeks. The “Reno Committee” chose one qualifier for each week. They then narrowed the list to 4 finalists. The committee did not have an easy job. After home visits of the final four, a winner was chosen!
The renovation will take place over the summer months and the final reveal scheduled for Renovation Month in October 2019.
