The sweat equity is a toss up. But he did turn her 3BR/1BA home into a 4BR/2BA home with a completely remodeled kitchen and paid for all of it. Even with the downturn in the market there was significant property value increase. So based on my limited understanding - he is definitely entitled to half the equity increase based on the percentage of his investment. The "sweat equity" would be based on the value of the work her provided for free and specifically mentioned in the case law of the state in question.

But he doesn't WANT any of that. If he gets it - he will settle for giving it back for nothing unless she gets something that he doesn't think she should have (Alimony or any of his property). He considers the money he spent to be lost and doesn't care to get it back.

So we shall see.
