Competition: Design Your Dream Holiday Home

July 29, 2020 Lauren Donnebaum

We may not be able to travel to far-off sunnier climes this year, but that won’t stop us dreaming about them - or designing them!

Following on from the amazing response we had for our Design the Dream Home Office competition, we're back with another SketchUp show-down where you can flex those design skills to the max whilst also getting a mini mind vacation. Did you know: in psychology, 'mental time travel' (also called future (episodic foresight / episodic future thinking). Pretty cool!

Ready for some 'chronosethsia' design inspo?

What’s up for grabs?
The winner will receive £250 worth of Voucher Express vouchers, a 3D Connexion SpaceMouse Wireless, a whole load of cool SketchUp swag; plus, endless bragging rights!

What are the T's & C's?
