Each VIBE Home Makeover provides a complete home transformation, with at least 20 exterior and interior improvements and upgrades. The renovation is completed during a 12-day community build, supported by volunteers from our project partners, including home improvement-related companies.
VIBE is a community outreach cause event, providing a designer home renovation valued at $150,000 to a recipient family in need at no cost to the homeowner.
There are four sectors of improvements: CORE, MAJOR, SITE-SPECIFIC, and FINISHING TOUCHES. A listing of examples for these sectors is noted here. Each sector is highlighted with more detailed information in other blogs.
CORE upgrades include those 10+ that we strive to provide each recipient. Core upgrades include: Full Exterior Painting, Custom Interior Painting, Refreshed Landscaping, A/C and Heating, Flooring, Kitchen Cabinets, Countertops, Updated Appliances, Bathroom Renos, New Furniture, Mattresses and Bedding, and the latest Electronics. Providing there is a need for each of the major upgrades, it is expected that each recipient receives most or all of these major upgrades.
MAJOR improvements include those that we provide depending on the recipient’s home, floor plan, family lifestyle, most recent improvements, and household wants. MAJOR improvements include Smart Home, Security System, Closets, Window Treatments, Lighting (Exterior + Interior), Ceiling Fans, Water Purification, Whole House Generator, Gutters + Protection, Outdoor Furniture, Fencing, and Pavers. Each recipient should receive multiple MAJOR improvements as part of the 20 that are allotted.
SITE SPECIFIC enhancements include those that are more specific to only certain homes. These include the Spa, Lanai, Outdoor Shed, Lawn Care Equipment, Garage Reno, Epoxy Surfacing, Electrical, Plumbing, Roofing, Storm Shutters, Custom Carpentry, and Special Needs/Requests for their highly specific situation or circumstance. Each recipient may receive a few of these as part of the 20, but some may not need any in this category unless there is a specific need.
FINISHING TOUCHES complete the designer makeover and include Artwork, Décor, Mirrors, Plants, Vases, Linens, Rugs, Lamps, Clocks, Shelving, and Throw Pillows; all combined with the Homeowner’s Treasures. It is expected that each homeowner receives several of these finishing touches.
In all, the selected recipient will receive a VIBE Home Makeover of more than 20 of these improvements, transforming their home into a truly beautiful and more functional living environment. (Disclosure: Each recipient will not receive all of the noted improvements, but rather, approximately 20 listed upgrades, plus finishing touches, that are conducive to their living situation.)
We are seeking nominations for our inaugural $150,000 designer home makeover project in Tampa Bay, Florida for 2023-24!
Funding for VIBE Home Makeover originates from project partners, who contribute financial resources, home-related products, and employee volunteer support.
