Sledgehammer invades Blog Cabin 2014

Jason Cameron brings his sledgehammer to smash away the ugly at Blog Cabin 2014 in Winter Haven, Florida. Jason and Blog host Chris Grundy demolish walls, an old set of stairs and an outdated bathroom to open up the first floor and reveal a stunning view of the lake. When the dust settles, Jason and Grundy get busy rebuilding this long-neglected house into a vacation retreat. In the entry way, Jason is installing new hardwood flooring with a special pattern that will welcome the winner of Blog Cabin 2014. In the living room, with the walls knocked down and stairs moved, there's new space for custom-built shelving. In the new sunroom, Jason is putting his carpentry skills into overdrive building a window seat and custom-built storage for fishing rods and cabinets for tack storage for every fisher's dream. The sunroom also gets tricked out with a dog door and cool stuff for furry friends. Plus, to keep the Florida heat at bay, there are new blinds and a room conditioning unit.

The Ultimate Outdoor Escape

Inspired by the breathtaking views, an outdoor space wraps the side of the house, providing shade from the intense midday sun. A pergola roof, vertical garden and grill station create the ultimate outdoor escape.
