Winter Haven, Florida -- For the eighth season of the interactive home building series, Blog Cabin on DIY Network, a Dundee home will be moved to a five-acre property overlooking Lake Hamilton in Winter Haven and be completely remodeled.

The 1920's-era bungalow, originally built for the first elected president of the Citrus Growers Association, will get a complete overhaul from expert hosts from the series and be transformed into a luxurious home for one lucky sweepstakes winner.

Tool expert Chris Gundy will host the one-hour special where Internet users get to vote on the design features for the home.

Voting opened on Jan. 7 and you can still have your say in how you think the home should look! You can vote on options like the exterior siding color, window pattern, interior paint palette and the flooring installed throughout right now in the first round of voting.

You can vote up to 10 times per day in each open round of voting, according to the network, until March 31, 2014.

CLICK HERE to vote!

Those of you interested in wanting to win the home can enter the 2014 DIY Network Blog Cabin Giveaway twice daily starting July 28, 2014.

The special is scheduled to air on Sept. 8.
