I had the opportunity to chat with the 2012 architect Corey Solum yesterday. I was gathering information about the process of siting the home. I look forward to sharing the story in its entirety in mid-August when we launch the Building of HGTV Dream Home 2012 package on HGTVPro.com. Something he said made me smile: “Every lot has a good side, just like people do.” His job in siting the home included a close examination of the lot to determine its “good side”.
I share a photo that demonstrates just how successful he was. Enjoy!
