Thanks so much for all the comments about great places across the United States to play host to an HGTV Dream Home! We’ve heard suggestions for everywhere from New England to the Gulf Coast to the Pacific Northwest, and of course Alaska and Hawaii.
I don’t think anyone has mentioned Las Vegas, though. We’ve had suggestions for locations in Arizona and Utah that mention the proximity of the city as a plus, but no one has lobbied for an HGTV Dream Home Las Vegas. And we’ve even had some recent experience designing a penthouse in Vegas!
Some have voted for a ranch out in the wide-open spaces, such as “somewhere in Wyoming or Montana.” Others prefer a more urban environment, maybe along Lake Michigan in Chicago or “near the Boeing plant in Seattle.”
Along with natural beauty, freedom from natural disasters is high on the list of priorities for locations. “Coast of Virginia, the weather is great, violent storms only about every 8 to 10 years, no earthquakes.” You guys are really concerned about seismic activity. At least five comments mentioned a lack of earthquakes as a plus.
Some of you already live in your dream location: Two people want us to build a home on their current lot and tear down their old house.
Thanks again for all your suggestions, and please keep sending them in. Just try to stay in the United States and remember, this is not a contest to guess where an upcoming HGTV Dream Home will be located. We certainly aren’t promising to build a home in any particular location, and this isn’t an official poll. There will be no “winner,” but we would love to hear your ideas on great places across the USA for an HGTV Dream Home.
