The entry period for the 2008 home is over. Be sure to watch HGTV on Sunday, March 16 at 9pm ET/6pm PT, when we surprise the winner of the home in the Florida Keys on live television!
And now, here we go on the search for the next HGTV Dream Home, the one we’ll be giving away in 2009. I’ll go ahead and take a bunch of states out of contention by saying the next house will be located in a state that has never played host to an HGTV Dream Home before. If you need a refresher on HGTV Dream Home history, check out the "Dream Homes Past" section on Dream Home Central. Also, in the coming weeks we’ll be identifying clues with a special icon. Look for this image on photos and links we’ll be using as clues to the location of HGTV Dream Home 2009. Look for it now on Dream Home Central near "Dream Homes Past."
And even though the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway has ended, there are more sweepstakes over at sister site DIY Network. Enter the DIY Great Garage Giveaway now for a chance to win $50,000 in cash to build or remodel your garage; they’ll even throw in a 2008 GMC Sierra Denali pickup to park inside. You can enter that DIY sweepstakes once a day until March 17.
And if you would like to tell us how to build a home before giving it away (and judging by all the comments on the HGTV Dream Home in Islamorada, many of you would like nothing better), then be sure to check out the DIY Blog Cabin. Right now you can vote on the type of flooring, windows, exterior color and even the master bathroom design. They’re building the cabin now on beautiful Watts Bar Lake here in east Tennessee. And starting Aug. 1, you’ll be able to enter for a chance to win the home.
Thanks again to everyone who entered this year’s HGTV Dream Home Giveaway, and good luck! Come back this Friday for another clue to the location of HGTV Dream Home 2009.
