How to I apply to be on “100 Day Dream Home?”
Brian and Mika feature clients and projects on the show that are already in the home building process. We do not do open casting calls. If you already have a builder and are interested in being part of the show please contact our project coordinator:[email protected].
How do I find out where items are sourced from homes featured on “100 Day Dream Home?”
Please check out the Preferred Vendors section on our website to see the companies that we have used and trust for quality and customer experience. Make sure to mention that you saw their product on “100 Day Dream Home” for special discounts.
Do you build ALL homes outside of the show in 100 days?
No, we have so many projects outside of the show and most of them average 8-14 months for completion. On the show we are not including all the work that happens on the front end like: permitting, design selection, finding land, closing on construction loans, and all the other magic that must happen. We typically only stick to the 100 day timeline for the projects we highlight on the show as we must pre-plan and order materials early with current market conditions.
Do Mika and Brian build the homes?
Dirt 2 Design partners with builders and contractors and works with clients on design as well as manage expectations and communication during the entire building process.
How much does it cost per square foot to build a home?
On average, current costs range between $195-$250 per square foot but there’s so much to consider in finding the exact amount. We can get a more accurate estimate once we learn more about your custom project.
