 “Every day, we are focused on our customers’ satisfaction and peace of mind, but this year we wanted to do something fun that also shows that HomeServe understands how important your home is to you,” said John Kitzie, CEO of HomeServe USA. “We mostly deal with customers protecting themselves against surprise emergency home repairs, so this sweepstakes is an opportunity to turn the tables and give one family a really pleasant surprise.”

The winner will receive a phone consult with Jenn Largesse, who will help build a design plan to transform one room into the heart of the home.

Jenn is the editor and creator of House One, a newly launched website from This Old House, sharing DIY projects, tutorials and advice with new homeowners and renters. As the daughter of a carpenter and an English teacher, Jenn has been honing her love for woodworking and writing her entire life. Now with House One, she discusses design trends and provides tutorials for everything from simple holiday décor ideas to major remodels.

“I was very fortunate to grow up woodworking alongside my dad,” Jenn said. “But working with your hands is about more than the skill—it’s about learning to fearlessly try new things and to problem-solve when it doesn’t (ever) go according to the plan.  With that mindset, anyone can turn their vision for a space into a reality.”
