Karen O’Leary’s house before getting the “Build Bold” treatment.

Karen O’Leary of Guilford, Conn., was selected as the winner of Royal Building Products’ “Build Bold” contest. She was chosen out of 547 nationwide entrants to win an exterior home makeover.

Karen will receive her choice of Royal Building Products insulated, traditional or shake siding, trim, shutters and accessories up to $25,000 in value. In addition, she will be featured in an upcoming episode of our nationally syndicated TV show Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford.

Karen was selected based on the photo of her home and her description about how she would transform the exterior of her home into a Build Bold design.

In her winning submission essay, Karen says, “Bold color and WOW appeal is what I’m looking for when changing the look of my house. I want to change the color of the siding to Wedgewood with white trim.” She would like to remove the faux brick and storm doors, add white shutters and a new double front door. She also has ideas for landscaping and lighting.

Stay tuned to Today’s Homeowner with Danny Lipford to see how Royal Building Products and the Today’s Homeowner crew help Karen bring her vision to life.

The “Build Bold” contest is sponsored by Today’s Homeowner and Royal Building Products. Visit our Giveaways page to find out about any other contests, sweepstakes, or giveaways that are currently taking place.
