    Wow! What great entries!

    @benlow11 I love the layout and the landscaping, and how you got a piano in there! Also love the calming colors.

    @Karababy52 Great curb appeal! Very well done layout, love the entry hall especially. Also love the kid's room decor.

    @lisa17ann You're curb appeal is just perfect! I LOVE your color schemes, and you even got a pool! Very clever little bathroom too. Impressive!

    @Issabella14 Wonderful landscaping! REALLY like the kitchen and dining - I could cook in there! And you got a pool too! My very favorite though is the master bedroom. Just adore the mauve-y colors!

    I'll try to keep up with all entries if I can! So loving joining in BnS again.

    Seeing loots of great builds already. I am noticing that the pre renovation set ups are all with out wall coverings.

    Are we not allowed to use a paint/siding on the containers as part of the free amount?

    I was thinking of putting one of the containers upright like that @gmcrozier . But did not know how to figure out how tall to make it, so it meets the required size of 4x10.

    Hey, @countrykris1play - nope, the paint/siding you use has to come out of your budget I'm afraid. The lot and the cost of the containers themselves are all that we are allowing as 'free'.
