Get excited people! We are teaming up with The UpSkill Project Powered by Lowe’s to help up to five local residents take on a DIY project in their home this summer.
Are you ready to tackle that project you’ve been dying to do in your home but haven’t been sure where to start? Not sure what tools to use? Or how to even do it? Well, you’re in luck! We’re coming to help with The UpSkill Project.
The UpSkill Project is traveling around the U.S. teaching and empowering homeowners with the skills needed to complete DIY projects and is now hitting up the Midwest,. Up to five local residents will receive side-by-side skill instruction from DIY experts and local Lowe’s employees to tackle a project in their home in just two days. They’re even giving you a $2,000 shopping spree to use at your local Lowe’s for your project. And we’ll come with you to join in on the fun and document it all!
Entering is easy. Get your cell phone out and create a 60 – 90 second video answering these three questions.
- What project would you like to complete to refresh your home?
- What skills do you think it would take to complete it?
- What would having those skills mean to you?
You can submit your entry HERE.
Before you enter, make sure to check the list of eligible zip codes here.
You have until the 21st of May to enter. And we’ll be coming into one resident’s home in the month of August.
The UpSkill Project will also host a free community workshop here in Minneapolis at a local Lowe’s…save the date August 25th! We’ll be hanging at Lowe’s with you guys learning about all things home improvement so that you can DIY your home with confidence. During this workshop, you’ll learn painting techniques, tiling skills, plumbing, and even how to use and be comfortable with a variety of tools. More details behind the workshop to come. For now, just mark your calendar so that you have a date with construction2style at Lowe’s!
If you’re not local to Minneapolis, you may still be able to participate. Check the website to see if The UpSkill Project will be coming to your area.
We are so pumped to meet all you fellow DIY’ers at the workshop on August 25th and help one resident DIY their home this summer. We’ll be documenting every step of the way for you guys so you can learn these skills too!
