Tuesday marks the start of the sweepstakes contest to win a $700,000 home in Minneapolis that has been remodeled by HGTV.

The DIY and lifestyle channel announced last month it had selected Minneapolis as the location for its 2019 Urban Oasis giveaway, having remodeled a home near Minnehaha Park.

To be in with a chance of winning the Minneapolis home, you can enter the sweepstakes starting Tuesday, Oct. 1, ending at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21.

Eligible fans can enter for a chance to win twice per day at HGTV.com/UrbanOasis.

Expect a lot of competition though, last year's Urban Oasis giveaway, in Ohio, received 65.3 million entries.

You can also take a closer look at the renovation project when the "Urban Oasis Special" premieres on HGTV on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Central.

The 1,800 square-foot house has been given a "top-to-bottom" renovation, transforming it into a "Scandinavian-inspired farmhouse is reflective of Viking and Nordic culture."

Check out the before and after pictures that shows the work that has gone into the house.
