Ladies, keep the smelling salts handy. I don’t want anyone to faint. This week, our Super Fan interviews the one, the only … Mr. Dream Home himself, house planner Jack Thomasson. He’s been working on the HGTV Dream Home project for 12 years and doesn’t lack for enthusiasm. He’s proof positive that doing what you love pays off.
Super Fan is so smooth, she almost squeezed the 2010 location out of him! He hinted at a home site east of California. I’m placing all my bets on Sedona, Ariz. — a luxury casita overlooking the breathtaking red rocks or a cozy cabin nestled in the woods near West Fork Oak Creek Trail.
Do you think I could be right? If not, what’s your prediction? Post your thoughts and dream big!
Today, our Super Fan chats with the HGTV Dream Home interior designer Linda Woodrum. Get her personal take on paint colors, twin kitchen islands and more.

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope your holiday is — if not cold and snowy — relaxing and filled with good food and drink and lots of merriment. Need a break from the family fun? Grab a cup of spiked egg nog, kick back in a cozy chair and enjoy the Super Fan’s interview with the HGTV Dream Home architect Norm Oliver. And don’t forget to keep the questions coming! We’re waiting for you to stump us!
Dying to know what went on behind the scenes? Follow the Super Fan, as she takes you on a tour of HGTV Dream Home 2009 on furniture load-in day. See special appearances by Jack, Linda and the talented band of decorators.
Got a question after taking the tour, viewing the photo galleries and watching the videos? Post your questions right here. Gail will track down the facts for you.
Better late than never! As promised, we’re proud to present an exclusive video series that features Jack and Linda’s all-time favorite HGTV Dream Home moments. Watch the series, then tell us what you consider the very best HGTV Dream Home ever built. I think mine would have to be 2002, simply because I’ve spent so much vacation time along the Delaware and Maryland shores. I can’t wait to read your thoughts!
We’re up and running again! Sorry for the little intermission as we relaunched the site. Today, Gail takes you on a tour of Sonoma — all the coolest spots in town. Tag along for the tour and then let us know what you think of the town … and our brand new look!
Today, Gail visits with Michael Schwab, famed illustrator and designer of the HGTV Dream Home 2009 logo. Make sure you watch to the very end. Gail’s giving you a quick peek at the fully furnished master bedroom. Pay attention and keep your eyes peeled … or you may miss the mini reveal!
Oh, and don’t forget to check back in on Monday. We’re launching yet another cool video series with Jack and Linda. Can you guess what it might be about?
As promised, Gail takes her first tour of the HGTV Dream Home in Sonoma and answers some of your burning questions … She’ll be vlogging each Thursday, so remember to check back — and keep posting your queries. Our Super Fan promises to sleuth out the inside scoop for you!
