Have a vision for your dream apartment? Great – Comcast recently rolled Comcast Town [1], a blue-sky space to live out your wildest interior design dreams! It’s a bit like Google Sketchup [2], except that you can customize your virtual apartment with everything from Eames [3]-like desk units and Aarnio-esque ball chairs to growing grass carpets, alien rugs… and… squirrel phones. Best of all, Comcast is hosting an online design competition for the best room, and the winner will receive a REAL room remodel to their actual house worth up to $30,000 and done by our very own Jill Fehrenbacher [4]! Getting started is a snap – just check out the video above and head over to Comcast Town [1] to create your dream apartment!

The contest deadline is Thursday May 14th at 11:59 PST, so submit your design today [1]!
