      The winner of the contest is welcome to add their input into the makeover. However, all renovations are strictly up to the sponsors. By entering the contest, the participant releases all rights to the design of the area to be remodeled. No additions outside of the sponsor-allocated budget will be permitted. KTRE-TV and its sponsors will not be held liable for any additional expenses resulting from unforeseen circumstances or unknown conditions of the area to be remodeled (i.e., termite damage, structural defects, etc.).
