Before & After
To share your whole-home, room, or van renovation, email email@example.com with "[Before & After Pitch]" at the beginning of the subject line. Include a brief project description and images from before and after the transformation.
We also welcome descriptions of planned projects that are not yet underway for potential Dwell involvement in, or coverage of, the building process.
Our Budget Breakdown series covers a wide range of project scopes and budgets. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with "[Budget Breakdown Pitch]" at the beginning of the subject line to be considered. Include a brief project description, images, and a detailed list of costs, including a grand total.
If you have recently undergone a new home build or renovation, we want to hear about it. Email email@example.com with "[Construction Diary Pitch]" at the beginning of the subject line with a brief project description and images. Tell us about the major milestones in the project timeline, including moments of joy and moments of despair.
Use the first person, and be as detailed as possible. Include process photos where they are appropriate, and use the caption to describe what’s happening in the photo. Include subheadings to help structure your narrative. For example, you may want to break down your journey into steps, then expand on each one:
- Collecting inspiration for my future house
- Finding the right architect and/or contractor
- Defining the scope of the project
- Tackling permitting issues
- Sourcing materials and fixtures
- Working with outside consultants
- Undergoing the construction process
- Moving into the home
For an example of a Construction Diary, read how Lou Maxon built his home in Carnation, Washington, with Olson Kundig Architects. Your diary should be a maximum of 2,500 words.
Tell us about a specific lesson you learned while undergoing a home build or renovation. This may have to do with your relationship with an architect or contractor, your budget or timeline, your choice of materials—or anything else that may come up during construction. Feel free to use the following template:
- Tell us about your project. Was it a new build, or a renovation? What was the scope, and where is it located? What were your main needs and wants?
- What was the most significant, or most surprising thing you learned during the entire process?
- What was the series of events that helped you realize this? How did you resolve it?
- If you were to distill your lesson into one piece of advice for others, what would it be?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with "[Lessons Learned Pitch]" in the beginning of the subject line, and describe your project and what you learned in under 500 words. Include photos of the finished project, as well as any that you feel help illustrate your lesson.
