Foster/Adoptive Family finalist in $20,000 home renovation contest

BANGOR, Maine — Local Foster Mom Tara Roy has been selected as one of six finalists competing for the public’s votes in an online contest sponsored by HouseLogic.

The Boost your Roost contest offers a $20,000 grand prize for home renovations to be completed and filmed in late August. Roy’s entry won over the judges by featuring the need to renovate a dusty old attic space into a family focused gathering room to be enjoyed by the whole family.

“Our family had a recent rapid expansion due to foster care and foster adoptions and now we need a rapid expansion of some kid friendly living space to keep up!” said Tara. “My five kids are so excited about their potential new play space”. The Roy/MacDonald’s Bangor home features a large unfinished walk-up attic that has perfect potential for a major transformation. Roy describes “The ceiling peaks at nearly 15 feet so we are picturing some dramatic cathedral ceiling and an overall room size of 700 square feet. We dream about someday having a Cedarworks Rhapsody indoor playground and think this would be the perfect room for it”.

Visit to vote for the Roy/MacDonald Family daily from July 30, 2012 to August 13, 2012.
