    We have a wood frame home built in 1920s or 30s and has been added on to. The foundation needs leveling, the galvanized water pipes need replacing. Walls need insulating, windows and casings need to be replaced and interior walls needs to be taken out. Financially we can’t even start on it.

  2. says

    Wow Virgie! I feel your pain. House repairs are so costly. Ever since the Katrina disaster lumber is skyrocketing. There is little relief for consumers who are already financially taxed by the recession and in need of imperative house repairs. I wish Obama would have bailed out the American people instead of the banks. I would have used the money to replace my roof.

  4. Marianna Kichline says

    We have a bathtub which is difficult to get into and my husband is 84. We need a bath makeover to make it safe

  5. Suzanne Robertson says

    My poor house needs a new roof, new windows, new floors, and a complete remake of the kitchen. I am trying to survive on a teacher’s salary and I just don’t make enough.I would spend every penny of that money carefully. I know I could do everything I needed if I could just win that money….. ♥

  6. Crystal Powers says

    This money would do wonders for our house! It’s about 10 years old now, so things are starting to go wrong and fading out of style. The kitchen is so bland I can hardly stand looking at it. The bathrooms are looking pretty sad as well. Not to mention several of the walls that could use some new paint, a master bath tub that needs re-finished, etc. And don’t let me get started about the exterior….new gutters, landscaping, etc. Oh, the things we could do!!!

  7. says

    I hope one of us wins this sweep! I’ve been entering HGTV sweepstakes for years religiously and never won a stitch of anything, BUT someone has win so maybe one of us will finally get lucky!!!

  11. Christina Willig says

    As a single mother of an amazing, handsome 10-year old son, I had many dreams of being able to stop renting and provide a HOME for my son to finish growing in. Well, as of a few weeks ago…my dream came true. I have finally accomplished one of my biggest goals, and now we can move happily forward. Given this is our FIRST home, it is small and dated. It needs a lot of updating within the kitchen, bathrooms and a partially finished basement. Being that I had to basically use all that I have saved for the purchase of our home, i would LOVE to be able to win the money to transform our small, dated first home into our small, quaint, dream home!! What’s meant to be will be, but I wish you all the best of luck!! :-)

  12. Anjelisa Thomas says

    As a single mother of 12 year old daughter. I was given my grandparents first home which is about 50+ years old. There are so many things that need to be done i dont know where to begin. The hardwood floors need to be refinished, a kitchen and bathroom makeover, and the outside needs curb appeal front and back.I would love to win the money to remodel my home inside and out!! Good luck to all!!

  13. monica cudahy says

    We spend 6 mos of our time in florida and used to spend the rest in New York (as it was our main residence for 38 yrs.) but due to major changes in our economy we are unable to continue as of now. We have 3 great children and 8 beautiful grandchildren that we loved to be with.
    Our children have opened their homes to us when we come back to n.y. but we don’t want to impose on them as they have a busy life. I would love to have a small place close to them to spend quality and precious time with them . maybe this will be our answered prayer. I love your wonderful programs every night if I win you can find me watching HGTV thanks for great shows.

  14. Patricia Green says

    I have gone from homeless to homeowner in the last fifteen years. My house is old but mine when ever I have company either I have to hold it or company so I usually let them use the restroom first. Although My house is small I have lots of room to build back and up.
    Sometimes my kids and their family have to stay with me and that is always a problem one restroom. I like to celebrate the Juneteenth and the 4th of July and someone always ends up using it outside. If I win I want to add a second restroom and a real closet and put a new roof so I can take the tarps and boards off my house. Then have one good celebration.

    God Bless HGTV

  16. Maryann says

    My home was left to me at the age of 15 when my Father passed. For years my family rented it out to tenants that never worked out. And, the house was always left in worse condition after each tenant. Now the house is completely empty and is in need of a new roof, flooring, cabinets, and landscaping. My dream is to win this money and make my Father’s house a home for my family once again.

  17. Joan Dillon says

  18. Maribel Checho says

    Please help us!! we had no idea on how to remodel, fix or coordinate anything,my husband and I never agree on anything when it comes to make thing flow and look nice in the house. This house was built in te 70’s (I believe)This house needs a lot of work to be done; we still have the original windows, showers and bathrooms, the kitchen needs new counter tops, Our backyard needs a retaining wall and patio cover. The money and your professionals will make such a diference in our lives. I hope you will concider our house for these so needed repairs. I’ll be forever grateful to you. Did I mention how much I enjoy the HGTV channel? It’s so inspiring!!

  22. debra sloan says

    I have a galley kitchen about 6 ft by 10 ft. Can’t even put my refig. in it. I always dream of a bigger kitchen. It would be so very nice to have a kitchen that others could visit with me while I cook. Not to mention enough room for someone to help me cook.

    I am at a transition in my life. After 20+ years of marriage, I find myself forced to find ME again. A newly redesigned home would definitely be a plus on my new beginning.
