HOW IT WORKS

  • Complete the form below and enter online.
  • Send us before and after images (2 MB) of the space, keeping the following in mind:
    • Where possible, before and after photographs should preferably be taken from the same angle.
    • Take your photographs during daylight.
    • Take wide photographs, not closeups, showing the entire room: kitchen, dining, lounge, bathroom, bedroom, patio, and anything else that might be of interest.
    • Where relevant, include close-ups of interesting elements but be sure to include a wide photo of the same area.
    • Cellphone photos are fine.
  • Use our calculator to include your budget breakdown of materials and contractors.
  • Indicate all the DIY jobs you completed during the renovation.
  • Supply your daytime contact details, cellphone number and home address.
  • If you are unable to complete your entry in a single attempt, choose the ‘save’ option at the bottom of the form, and enter your email address to receive a link which will allow you to complete your entry within 30 days. The link will expire after 30 days.

    Did you pay any contractors? List them here and indicate how much you paid for each of the jobs they completed. Focus on the cost of the labour, not materials..

    What did you do yourself? List each job – you can only include projects that were done by you or your family/friends (eg laying of tiles, sanding floors, assembling kitchen cupboards). These are the items that have no cost attached to them.
