HGTV Dream Home 2016 Winner Announcement

Congratulations to David Rennie of Shelton, Connecticut!

He is the lucky winner of a coastal retreat located in Merritt Island, Florida, a 2016 GMC Acadia Denali®, $250,000 cash prize provided by national mortgage lender Quicken Loans, and a beautiful new boat. A grand prize valued at over $1.5 million!

HGTV Dream Home 2016 Winner

David’s name was chosen from more than 127 million entries for the HGTV® Dream Home Giveaway 2016. Our lucky winner and his wife Margaret were in disbelief when host Tiffany Brooks and the HGTV production crew ambushed them at their hometown church. “It was incredible,” shares David about the ambush his daughters and minister helped plan.

BROWSE PICTURES OF THE AMBUSH

David  is a proud father of two daughters and former Boy Scouts of America employee. After being diagnosed with  ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease), David received a kidney transplant in March 2015. “I thought I won the lottery with the kidney. That was life changing, but so is this. We just never thought it could get any better.”

Rennie’s daughters and the church planned a blessing for his first year of survival with the kidney. Following the ceremony, Brooks let the family know they might have something else to celebrate. A big win!

An avid fan of HGTV, David has been following all of the HGTV home giveaways for many years. “I binge-watched HGTV during my treatments prior to my surgery, and entered the giveaway regularly. In fact, my wife would give me grief for entering, and we were both sure nothing like this would happen to us,” he says.

Our lucky winner is still amazed by his stroke of good fortune, and is looking forward to visiting Merritt Island and enjoying his winnings. The HGTV Dream Home 2016 winner visit is scheduled the weekend of his wife’s birthday. David says he’s watched the building of the home and viewed the photos online, but they can’t wait to see it in person. His wife is especially looking forward to spending some time on the dock on the river.

  40. Does anyone know what is going on with the lack of a Blog for the 2017 Dream Home?

    K.B. on March 23, 2017 at 8:44 am
    • They stopped creating new blogs after last year's giveaway homes, turning to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for their "official" postings instead.

      Lots of "corporate" sites have done similarly, dropping forums and blogs in favor of "social media sites" which already have lots more subscribers and smart phone apps.

          • Eugenia I have been working on that to make sure we don't lose you and Bee and all the friends we have made throughout the years. But sometimes real life gets in the way. Soney went to the hospital today but a big thumbs up from the nurse and my Soney Boy is AOK! Don't do Facebook or any other Social Media. But I will try to figure it out. Anyway happy to see my little Soney Boy moving around even though he has trouble eating. Thanks Eugenia Love from Soney and Alice from Rainy, Snowy, little bit sunny Seattle!

  60. My first two entries are in, too.

    Did you notice the Dining Room 360 shows the light fixture in shiny bronze and the pictures show it in black? Looks much better in black, so I like to hope Wayfare sent the wrong bronze one the first time. The Delta blogger took pictures of the bronze version, though, so that suggests that that was the final color.

    In the Master Bedroom, there is a bell jar. In one of them (360 vs. pictures) the bell jar contains sea shells and in the other one it has the disgusting skull of a baby crocodile. Linda Woodrum would have been on top of things like this. Lots of other things being moved around in the house. No one ever said FREEZE! apparently.

    • THANK YOU! That is a very helpful site!

      I deeply appreciate the explanation for why the DH has such a different feel this time.

      The last time we had an industrial dining room table, we didn't have any furniture company sponsor. I think this cold cement would finally get me to keep my elbows off the table. lol

      I love the wallpaper of blue feathers and I love the blue sofa in the pool lounge room. The pale blue color on the ship lap was lovely. I forget which room that was. I hope we will learn the exact colors used. I miss the dots that used to appear on the walls that you could click for more information.

      So far, I am still looking at pictures and reading captions. I haven't watched any of the videos yet.

      No fear, I definitely will be entering daily.

      I'm glad you're still here!

    • I think it is amazing. I'll be entering every day! You should too.
      I'm sure some will be turned off by its decor which is very different from past dream homes since Wayfair seems to be the major furnishing sponsor and not Ethan Allen this time around.

    とはいっても、今でも「肌の手入は女子のもの」と言っている男子が数多いことも事実です。

    お肌のお手入は、決して女の子だけのものではないのです。

    お肌がビューティフルで清楚な男子って、ずいぶんアトラクティブですよね。

    男子もぜひ、すすんでお肌のお手入れに挑戦してみてください。

    というわけで、このたびは「スキンケアの基本(メンズ編)」と称しまして、男性向けの肌の正しい基本知識について、皆さんへお送りします。

    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to
    grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to
    grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.

  124. This is AMAZING! I hope one day my family can get a new home. I guess I should say my mom and dad. Their house is literally falling apart. My daddy has Parkinson's, and Dementia. He just recently had a stroke, now is bed ridden, can't use his whole left side, as of right now, and now my mama takes care of him, without complaint. I just would feel so much better not worrying if the roof is going to cave in, or the floor will give out. When it rains, my mama puts storage containers everywhere b.c of the rain coming through the roof, in several places in the house. My mama just turned 70 and my daddy is 71. They got me when I was six and another little girl, when she was three, and had three children, of their own, before us. They always took care of us, and my mama and daddy were very good at raising us right, and it's hard to see my daddy like this, because he likes to be productive. He has worked since he was very young. They took us both out of a bad situation. I just wish and pray one day they will have a new home…..

Sólo pueden venir hasta las 12 de la mañana, por tema de ruta, y el técnico es un señor poco simpático y malhumorado. Día de hoy sigue igual, no me lo solucionan,tiene un defecto de fábrica y no lo quieren admitir, no compraré nunca más la marca fagor. Llevo casi todo el verano con problemas con mi frigorífico fagor, ha venido el técnico y entra dentro de la garantía, y me han dicho que lo tienen que sustituir, pero tal y como os ha pasado a los demás, ya me están dando largas.

  154. While martial arts are effective at constructing esteem and
    a healthier physique, they’re overrated for self protection. The reasons for that is that martial arts can be taught
    improperly as well as taking too much time and effort
    to actually grasp. For more practical self protection tactics, girls should look at empty-handed or unarmed fighting
    strategies, a few of that are designed just
    for girls. This sort of empowerment coaching is also fairly environment friendly as well
    as fierce: a good course can teach women to
    render their would-be assailant unconscious.

    https://www.facebook.com/HGTVLive/

    Are we going back to a simpler place and time, something along the lines of an old sweet song that brings Georgia back to mind?

    Reclaimed wood from this 1800's Georgia schoolhouse was used for a special project at DH 2017:

    https://www.facebook.com/sonsofsawdust/photos/a.3

    The Sons of Sawdust guys are based in Athens/Watkinsville, GA, so that's a mighty strong hint about the area where HGTV is currently working on our next Dream Home.

  170. Is this a photo of the next Dream Home location?

    Probably not, but hopefully Dream Home 2017 will have a hammock hung between a couple of trees along with a scenic water view.

    • That would be a dream location, DBCoop.

      What about this one? It's not as tropical but it is really beautiful and you could hang a hammock between the trees. Nice river view too. http://evusa.com/uploads/agent-4194/28%20Seven%20

  172. Another lucky winner — of the Berkshire Hathaway "Love Your Home Sweepstakes" that is.

    "Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices announced the winner of its 'Love Your Home Sweepstakes' held during the spring in conjunction with HGTV and its hit show Love It or List It. Todd Villari, a Trussville, AL, father of four and HGTV enthusiast, was drawn for a $50,000 cash prize from among more than 3.3 million sweepstakes entries. The entrant total more than doubled the total of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ first sweepstakes a year ago."

    "Villari lives in a historic neighborhood in Trussville, a suburb of Birmingham. He recently started renovating his home and said he’ll use a portion of his winnings to pay for those upgrades. The balance will go toward additional home projects, such as a new garage or kitchen."

    True, it may not be an HGTV Dream Home, but an unexpected $50,000 in your pocket is also a very pleasant surprise.

    DBCoop on August 4, 2016 at 10:02 am
  173. CONGRATULATIONS THE Rennies! I wonder how HGTV decides who wins. Before my father died, I entered everyday in hopes to give my father a home. His was stolen from him by shady mortgage people. I did not win even though I entered every single day. I did not miss a day because I was care giving for my Dad.

  178. LOOKING AHEAD to 2017, could any of these residences be in the running for HGTV's next Dream Home? See what you think.

    Starting with this South Carolina home — which needs some serious REthinking…. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/89/d4/2

    A once gracious Georgia mansion that looks to need a lot more renovation than most… https://assets3.thrillist.com/v1/image/1594718/si

    This quaint Florida cottage has plenty of porch to sit out on and enjoy the scenery… http://cdn.onlyinyourstate.com/wp-content/uploads

    An unusual Louisiana bayou high-rise with a river view… http://photorator.com/photos/images/treehouse-red

    Last but not least, this Alabama estate is practically move-in ready:

    http://toc.h-cdn.co/assets/15/42/980×490/landscap

    Set for auction in October 2015 with no reserve, I wonder if HGTV picked this one up for a song. Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, the Birmingham, Alabama 'Guitar House' is set on 27 acres and would make for a mighty grand Dream Home. http://www.townandcountrymag.com/leisure/news/g16

    DBCoop on July 16, 2016 at 11:35 pm
    • Those are some interesting ideas for the next Dream Home. The most interesting one is the bayou high rise but they would all need so much work, Coop. :)

      I guess the Alabama Guitar House would need the least amount of work but 15 bedrooms is more than anyone I know could ever need unless you plan to open a bed and breakfast.

  179. For a very long time I did not think they would allow Senior's to win; as they want to KNOW your age. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this family won. However I do believe they are 'vetted' by knowing income, etc before they will allow you to win; they want you to take possession of the property but some States have very high mortgage taxes. CA does not, and HGTV does not state where the people live. Has a CA homeowner ever won a sweepstakes? I know I used to be lucky as a kid, but I have signed up every year, done all things right, even giving five post cards every day; but I have never won and I really need to win! I am a disabled RN and while I have helped thousands live; I am finding it hard to get by. I know a lot of people are in the same boat, but we were in a housing crash where our house in 2004-2007 was worth a million; and it was creeping up to that for several years then bust! Our house wasn't worth a dime. A 4,800 sq ft new gorgeous home was foreclosed in Central CA and someone walked away with a truly beautiful home for…six thousand dollars! Hard to believe but true!

  181. Setting the scene for a possible Dream Home 2017 in the Bayou State are the shimmering lights of Baton Rouge in the evening time… proof that there's more to today's Louisiana than you might have thought: http://batonrougesouth.place.hyatt.com/content/da

    Act One: Setting the mood. Sit back and take in a cinematic view and historical drive through Louisiana's antebellum past — from New Orleans to Baton Rouge — a River Road plantation video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuFS7b05dGw

    You might even want to add in another remarkable experience — Mark Twain style — by taking a memorable riverboat cruise along the mighty Mississippi aboard the American Queen paddlewheeler. Or, as Tina Turner might sing out, what could be better than "Rolling, rolling, rolling on the river." There aren't many travel adventures that can match it — all while soaking up the changing landscapes and exciting ports of call along the way. Maybe I'll see you strolling the decks soon….
    http://www.americanqueensteamboatcompany.com/aqsc… (may be a little slow to download, but worth the wait!)

    Act Two: Take in four renditions of a possible Dream Home playlist.. because you don't have to be born on the bayou to love the bayou — or the delicious Creole cuisine! These homes are set within upscale communities a short drive southeast from the city yet are only minutes from everything that metropolitan Baton Rouge has to offer.

    Gorgeous double lake lot home loaded with charming detail: $589,900 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/19050-Turnberry

    Elegant golf course residence overlooking Bayou Manchac: $634,500 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/18536-Fairway-O

    Authentic Acadian-styled custom home with gated drive and private lake view: $1,175,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/312-Woodleigh-D

    Why not take the high road? With a little luck and a passel of polite pleas, we might be able to convince HGTV to spring for this dreamy chart-topper:

    Breathtaking world-class 5 bedroom estate with inviting pool and water views: $2,195,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/14747-Highland-

    Act Three: A grand finale… setting the stage with dramatic backdrops for a potential Louisiana bayou Dream Home….

    The belle of the ball… Historic Houmas House Plantation: http://www.toursbyisabelle.com/uploads/images/Hou

    One of the magical landscapes of Baton Rouge: http://ds0ucpy89hlve.cloudfront.net/images/made/i

    A colorful collage of Creole creations sure to satisfy the soul: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/

    Last but certainly not least, to seal the deal: An iconic southern tune from John Fogerty… "Jambalaya on the Bayou" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaZ1aidaOjA

    Okay folks, jambalaya, a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo… that's reason enough right there for y'all at HGTV to head on down to Cajun country for Dream Home 2017!

  187. Is HGTV going to The Heart of Dixie for Dream Home 2017? That would be the state of Alabama, and for live oaks dripping with Spanish moss in mind, the coastal community of Daphne, known as "The Jubilee City" is an ideal setting. More than an across the bay neighbor of Mobile but a destination in its own right, the city extends from sea level on its western shoreline into green and wooded rolling hills to the east.

    Not yet familiar with Mobile's eastern neighbor? Learn more about Daphne, AL on the city's official website: http://www.daphneal.com/visitors/all-about-daphne

    A smart move would be this attractively priced pool home nestled under a canopy of magnolias and oaks: $269,900 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/108-De-Juzan-Ci

    Bella, bella! This charming 4 bedroom custom home with enclosed pool area is sure to please: $475,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/9518-Bella-Dr-D

    Sophisticated European style, lush landscaping, pool and bay views make this home a prime contender: $985,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/306-Cameron-Ct-

    Head for the hills, stay for the wooded 5 acres that surround this elegant estate in Old Daphne: $1,396,750 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/703-Hillwood-Ci

    Dig your toes in the sand and find the castle of your dreams: http://www.mobilealabamaareahomes.com/artman/uplo

    Take a late afternoon stroll along the boardwalk at Daphne's Bayfront Park: http://thecummingscompany.com/wp-content/uploads/

    Go for a leisurely evening sail on Mobile Bay: http://www.mobilealabamaareahomes.com/hp-slide-im

    The big picture… a scene of haunting beauty: http://selfhealingatlightspeed.com/new/wp-content

    And when it comes time for brunch, lunch or dinner, try the best in Southern-style dining at Boudreaux's Cajun Grill. Mouthwatering dishes with bay views to match:

    The chances of a Deep South location? Well, as Lynyrd Skynyrd might say, "Sweet [Dream] Home Alabama, where the skies are so blue. Sweet Home Alabama, carry me home back to you."

  190. Will we be dreaming of Tallahassee anytime soon? Nicknamed the Sunshine State, Florida has long been an HGTV favorite for home giveaway locations — and for all the right reasons.

    Gulf Coast close, within a 40 minute drive, Tallahassee is sometimes referred to as The City of Seven Hills. Though relatively flat to most eyes, the area is hilly by Florida standards. Also surprising to some, despite its long summers and short, mild winters, Tallahassee, again unlike much of Florida, experiences all four seasons. In autumn, trees that line some of the city's downtown streets showcase intense shades of red, golds and yellow-orange, though winters only rarely dip down into white Christmas temperatures.

    So should we expect a Tallahassee Dream Home for 2017? Can't say at the moment, but until the news breaks, we can get a head start on checking out some prime real estate offerings in this state's capital city.

    $575,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1100-Maclay-Rd-

    $650,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/7559-Preservati

    $750,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3082-Shamrock-S

    $1,400,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/208-Rosehill-Dr

    And more… with a few Dream Home opportunities at Tallahassee's scenic Lake Jackson:

    Handsome 4 bedroom, 3 bath lake view property $479,999 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2708-Lucerne-Dr

    Extraordinary lakefront estate with pool on over 5 acres and lake views: $825,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3410-Lakeshore-

    Finally, some exquisite Tallahassee landscapes that shouldn't be missed….

    An enchanting, otherworldly scene taken in Alfred B. Maclay Park, a 1,176 acre botanical garden and historical site nestled aside Tallahassee's Lake Hall: http://www.statesymbolsusa.org/sites/statesymbols

    This meandering brick pathway makes for a heavenly stroll past the exotic flora and fauna of Maclay Park: http://fcit.usf.edu/florida/flassets/content/6500

    Another striking Tallahassee water view over dreamy Lake Ella: http://www.visionsoftravel.org/wp-content/uploads

    All probably why in his 50's era song even Freddy Cannon was big on Tallahassee long before it made the list of Dream Home 2017 possibilities!

The old DH message board…..Any clues left in the 2016 home….I saw the Facebook video…so what we know is it is hot there and has plenty of sun…in one of the 50 states….is by a lagoon or body of water, looks inland from color of water…Spanish moss hanging from trees and a few pin oaks….what else?? Let's put our heads together and find out where this one is….come on Dreamers!!

    NJGal on June 28, 2016 at 4:30 pm
    • Hi NJGal! My first guess is New Orleans. But I see Savannah mentioned above so I'm going back and reading prior posts. Always fun to guess the location of the next Dream Home. So glad HGTV is having one after the Merritt Island renovation. :)

      dooby78 on June 28, 2016 at 5:45 pm
      • Hello NJGal and dooby78! Fun to get back to sleuthing out locations for the next DH!! How about Charleston, SC, or Wilmington, NC. Both cities are by lagoon or bodies of water and Spanish moss.

        lensgaga on June 29, 2016 at 9:06 am
  197. Congrats to you! Wishing you the best in health as you enjoy your new home!

    Era Jane Roberts on June 28, 2016 at 12:44 pm
  198. Next on the list of possible Dream Home 2017 locations is Savannah, GA. This Southern Belle is home to grand Antebellum mansions, cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages. There are 22 park squares, many lined with stately live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and carefully planted with azaleas for brilliant seasonal color.

    Savannah's tourism website is the place to go for everything you need to know about the city before heading off into the sunset: http://www.savannah.com/

    On to the main feature — Savannah real estate:

    A handsome charmer with water views from almost every room: $839,995 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/15-Long-Island-

    An elegant and spacious home on a deep waterfront lot: $1,399,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/15-Priory-Rd-Sa

    Grand Tuscan style waterfront estate on over 2 acres: $1,589,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/116-Rainbow-Ln-

    Soar with the eagles in this breathtaking custom-built estate: $2,625,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/12-Eagle-Point-

    Finally, for a bit of Southern comfort before you leave, here are some scenic photos of Georgia's "First City."

    An early morning sunrise scene to set the mood and capture the essence of this historic port city: http://www.journeysinlightphotoblog.net/wp-conten

    LaFayette Square — a captivating view from the public square that honors Frenchman Gilbert du Motier, the Marquis de LaFayette: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4090/5027478606_9a

    Taking in a bucolic Savannah countryside sunset is the perfect way to end a memorable visit: http://nataliemikaels.com/wp-content/gallery/land

    PS: A few hints… If you're planning a look-see around Savannah, put these dining venues on your to-do list: Narobia's for crab stew — best for breakfast over cheesy grits with a side of eggs. For lunch, why not pick up the perfect picnic provisions at Papillote? Go for the ever-popular Le Parisien, a mouth-watering sandwich of ham, brie, Swiss cheese and a mandolined apple on fresh ciabatta bread. Oh la la — it's divine! Dinner time calls for a special Savannah treat at the upscale restaurant called Local 11Ten. (The address is 1110 Bull St… hence the name.) Highly recommended are the seared sea scallops served with watercress, grilled apple, pomegranate coulis and fennel puree. Heavenly!

  203. Since we're tracking to the South/Southeast for Dream Home 2017, I thought it would be fun to check back in on real estate again around two of my favorite cities, Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. I wouldn't mind a Dream Home in either one. Or, will HGTV be taking us back to Florida again? Around Tallahassee — practically a neighbor to Blog Cabin 2016 in Panacea, FL?

    Let's start off with Charleston, SC in this post and slowly travel further south. Founded in 1670, Charleston is a bastion of Southern charm and has been voted America's Number One small city, enticing visitors with cobblestone streets and pre-Civil War vintage homes… and that's just for starters, y'all. You might want to peruse the city's official webpage to find out just how much there is to love about Charleston.
    http://www.charlestoncvb.com/

    Not only Charleston itself but the low-country landscape that surrounds the area will delight the senses and steal your heart. Speaking of dreamy, take a peek at some of the homes that are available to make your very own, though surely you'll want to hold off on any offers until the HGTV Dream Home 2017 location is revealed — just in case you're tempted by yet another vision of paradise further afield.

    A gracious and private retreat set amidst majestic live oaks on John's Island: $789,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2395-Seabrook-I

    Southern appeal outside with contemporary flair inside on over four acres: John's Island $850,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3329-River-Land

    Stunning Mount Pleasant estate on one acre overlooking tropical landscaping, pool and golf course: $1,150,000 http://www.luxuryportfolio.com/Property/mount-ple

    In the realm of a true dream home — for a princely sum well beyond the HGTV Dream Home budget….

    Bask in the beauty of this grand European style lakefront estate: Charleston $5,900,000 http://www.sothebysrealty.com/eng/sales/detail/18

    So while we wait, enjoy these two irresistible scenes of Southern seduction — landscapes to dream away the hours. Each is reason enough to consider the Charleston, SC low-country for HGTV's Dream Home 2017 — number twenty-one in a memorable line of elegant grand prizes.

    DBCoop on June 22, 2016 at 9:28 am
    • Shaved ice of course.
      They are all lovely.
      How about finding something more inland and not in flood zones.

  209. Could there be an HGTV Dream Home coming to Eureka Springs, Arkansas? Quieter than the better known Hot Springs, AR, this charming city of just over 2,000 friendly residents is known as "The Little Switzerland of America" for its Victorian-style cottages and manor houses and as "The Stairstep Town" for its hilly, winding roads where you'll not find any streets that intersect at a 90 degree angle — or any traffic lights for that matter. Of course, the town is also home to spring waters that have long been claimed to have healing powers. The climate is defined as humid and subtropical with hot summers and mild to cool winters.

    The entire town is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has also been called one of America's most distinctive small towns, popular as a premier tourist destination, artistic haven and proud home to a range of surprisingly progressive policies. Along with the pleasures of simply soaking in the healing waters, the town offers plenty of activities for visitors of all ages: music venues, art galleries, great dining choices, wineries, carriage tours, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, golf and even some "kick up your heels" nightlife.

    With that in mind, how about some real estate with Dream Home potential?

    Consider this water view home with a spacious mountain cabin feel: $550,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/869-Lakeshore-D

    Check out a country cottage style home $649,900: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/390-Cobblestone

    Go big with a Beaver Lake estate on 20 acres: $998,900 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1347-County-Roa

    Splurge on this unique custom-built lakefront home set within nearly 6 acres: $1,590,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/831-S-Bayshore-

    Finally, here are a few views of this attractive little town:

    What's not to love about downtown Eureka Springs? http://eurekaspringsmediacenter.com/wp-content/up

    A fine place to rest and rejuvenate is the New Orleans Hotel and Spa in downtown Eureka Springs: http://www.neworleanshotelandspa.com/

    So where do you think HGTV will be leading us to next? Hopefully Brian Patrick Flynn and Josh Temple will be giving us a few more online hints along the way!

    • I finally decided to go with the mountain cabin home, DB. It feels right for Eureka Springs but I might change my mind again tomorrow.

  210. I've been entertaining friends from Europe today and didn't preview much of the Dream Home 2017 video earlier, so thanks for the heads-up and reminder Ut4evr.

    For those who wish to view it without having to sign in to Facebook, here is the link to the video with Brian Patrick Flynn and Josh Temple:

    https://www.facebook.com/100011579388495/videos/2

    As Josh tells us, the walls are set and the rooms are defined, so the renovation is progressing nicely. Still, we won't see or hear much more for about another three months when the project is wrapped up and videos are ready for us to check out all the fine details.

    From the video background, it's looking very Georgia-esque to me. I could even make a wild guess of northeastern Georgia's Piedmont region, particularly around the Elberton County area — but what state we're heading to in 2017 is still wide open for opinions! ^_^

    DBCoop on June 17, 2016 at 11:53 pm
    • I'm going with coastal Ga/SC. Guessing Bluffton, SC for some reason. Saw some Spanish moss in the background trees. :)

      fiddlercrab on June 18, 2016 at 10:03 am
      • Yes, fiddlercrab, I'd say more south and possibly coastal is a good direction to go.

        DBCoop on June 18, 2016 at 11:02 am
      • I think Bluffton, SC looks like a good spot for a Dream Home. The weather would be good there too.

        DesignABCs on June 19, 2016 at 4:02 pm
    • Just for fun… could this be the next Dream Home? Probably not.

      The L. M. Heard house was built in 1909. It is in the Elberton (Elbert County) Residential Historic District and on the National Register of Historic Places.

      Quite a grand old home.

      • A historical home would be a different direction for HGTV to go in, Coop. But thanks for showing it to us.

        DesignABCs on June 18, 2016 at 4:53 pm
    • OMG your amigo's from Europe must feel overwhelmed with the weather in your neck of the desert. Hope they were able to cope and still enjoy the area. Shock to the system for sure. Hope they didn't come just to to escape all the flooding in Europe. Would love to hear their reactions to the contrasting environments. Let me know if they plan to visit Washington DC. Love to take a glass and hear their stories. (Heads up the DC metro is a dang mess. )

      Ashtabulannie on June 20, 2016 at 12:33 pm
      • To make a long story less long, Ashtabulannie, they loved the heat! Well, being from the Netherlands where it's cold and gray most of the year, sunshine is a welcome commodity. They even went hiking the other day… though the high was only a moderate 95.

        Aside from a welcome change from the cold and damp, they travel to sunny and exotic shores often so they appreciate fun in the sun. They are in Las Vegas now, then a flight home.

        Another point strongly in their favor to cope with the range of temps — they are a young couple; he is in his mid-30's, she is 20. Youth has its advantages. Both are also exceptionally fit. He is a former ballet dancer, she is a model. As a couple, you can imagine they turn heads wherever they go!

        Now things are quieter at the old homestead, with Terri and I avoiding any need to step outside into this blazing heat. Hmm, maybe I should head right for the fridge and indulge in a few scoops of ice cream. With this heat, who cares about spoiling the appetite for dinner. If need be, I'll just have a couple more scoops of ice cream!!

        DBCoop on June 20, 2016 at 5:13 pm
        • Ohhh I adore the Netherlands. Wonderful time visiting Keukenhof gardens. And the beer!!!! ( And the other stuff too! lolol.) They will have a grand time in Vegas. Enjoy your ice Cream! Me …off to the local pub to join in an old fashioned Irish Session with some top notch musicians . Me not. But I try my best to keep up. Ahhh an ice cold Guinness is calling my name. Stay cool and safe my friend and your cute pup too!

          Ashtabulannie on June 20, 2016 at 6:01 pm
  211. Have you seen the 2017 location clue video on Facebook? Josh Temple and BPF introduce us to a rebuild location that it is hot and humid on a body of water where lots of plants grow and birds sing. Check it out. It's pretty entertaining. :)

    Ut4evr on June 17, 2016 at 8:46 pm
    • No more clues on the Dream Home Blog. So many changes. Don't do Facebook. Wish we could see this, where plants grow and birds sing. Something we found. Don't do Pinterest either. https://www.pinterest.com/kgk2012/hgtv-dream-home

      alicesoneysmom on June 17, 2016 at 10:31 pm
      • I hope there will be clues! Here is a link to see the video without logging onto Facebook. Love what I see on your pinterest link. I don't do that either. My Facebook use is to keep in touch with my nieces and nephews spread all over the USA. But I had time to kill and searched HGTV's page. Glad I did. Hope this link works for you. https://www.facebook.com/100011579388495/videos/v

        Ut4evr on June 18, 2016 at 11:25 am
        • The link works great. Thanks so much Ut4evr! And thanks for sharing with us! Here in Seattle plants grow and birds sing! Thanks Ut4evr

          alicesoneysmom on June 19, 2016 at 8:25 pm
          • I'm guessing somewhere in North or South Carolina for the new location. It's definitely here in Utah!

            Ut4evr on June 20, 2016 at 9:00 pm
          • definitely NOT here…

            Ut4evr on June 29, 2016 at 12:22 am
        • Thanks for posting this link, Ut4evr. I'm on facebook but didn't see it. Hot and muggy isn't my thing.

          dooby78 on June 28, 2016 at 5:48 pm
    • Interesting information even though no location is mentioned. Also, no need to sign in to Facebook in order to view the video, which is good for those who aren't fans of Facebook.

      DBCoop on June 17, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Christina Shepherd on June 14, 2016 at 1:57 am
  216. Could the next Dream Home be in Pennsylvania? Perhaps set somewhere within the lush green countryside northwest of Philadelphia? Who wouldn't want to be surrounded by grand and gracious homes nestled within wooded acreage or sweeping views that overlook verdant farmland steeped in the old world heritage of early Americana?

    Then there's the natural beauty of a varied four-season climate:

    Spring: http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000ltdFVg

    Summer: https://41.media.tumblr.com/c4c3f22fd1805f21a88e3

    Autumn: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-N07l8SwYE00/VkIYquV70fI

    Winter: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/12042

    So, whether filled with stories from centuries past or just a few decades, here is a small collection of homes with unique potential. Each possesses those special qualities to ensure that an HGTV renovation, be it modest or major, would be certain to win our hearts and have hopefuls everywhere singing the praises of yet another stunning Dream Home transformation.

    Quiet and private, carefully maintained residence with pool on one well-manicured acre: Villanova, PA $875,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/16-Wistar-Rd-Vi

    Refined comfort set on a picturesque acre of landscaped property bordered by a bubbling brook: Bryn Mawr, PA $945,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/635-Old-Gulph-R

    This charming home comes with scenic views over a 7 acre lake to provide a recreational paradise: Berwyn, PA $1,150,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1044-Signal-Hil

    Topping the list — and the budget — is a sunlit custom-built estate on over 3 acres with private pond: Gladwyne, PA $2,495,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1450-Soapstone-

    A hop, skip and carriage ride away from the idyllic countryside setting is the great city of Philadelphia, the heart of America's colonial past. There you'll enjoy an amazing range of daytime and nighttime activities that include plenty of historic buildings, art, museums, gardens, dining, shopping and plain old people-watching. Check out all of the must-see attractions:

    Are you ready to put Pennsylvania on your Dream Home list, HGTV?

    DBCoop on June 12, 2016 at 8:50 am
    • I would be happy with Pennsylvania and any one of the four especially the 1800 house with the creek.

      DesignABCs on June 13, 2016 at 9:32 am
      • I like the 1800's house too, Design, but my favorite would be the Berwyn, PA home overlooking the scenic 7 acre lake. Besides, I think that home has great Dream Home potential written all over it.

        DBCoop on June 16, 2016 at 9:50 am
  217. Just dropping a few hints HGTV while we are speaking of the Seahawks! How about Seattle? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQThuGqRUTQ

    alicesoneysmom on June 11, 2016 at 10:35 pm
  218. Speaking of the Seahawks! Soney and I have wanted HGTV to pick Seattle for a Dream Home. One on Lake Union would be perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8eT0yRBuNk

    alicesoneysmom on June 11, 2016 at 10:26 pm
    • A tribute to Merle Haggard. While we are speaking of Houseboats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ii3Bgejl5A

      alicesoneysmom on June 12, 2016 at 10:11 pm
    • While we are still speaking of Houseboats, here is another great video clip. And also, another rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. So very pretty! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbWxbB0Dhnw

      alicesoneysmom on June 13, 2016 at 4:27 pm
    • I always thought it would be so cool to have a house boat on lake Union. I think most Seattleites fantasies about that.

      Eugenia27 on June 15, 2016 at 3:17 pm
  219. Was hoping for some clues as to the next Dream Home location. It's June now, this was posted in March. Hope HGTV comes back to Colorado!

  225. It's amazing and inspiring everything they do in such a short time period. Check out my blog for some of the cheap home decor things I've started since watching a lot of HGTV.. I'd appreciate any feedback. http://lifeslittlelemons.simplesite.com/428383915

  226. In the search for the next HGTV Dream Home location, a place of beauty and community that most anyone could enjoy, I'm drawn back to the Ventura County, CA town of Ojai. Real estate prices are high, but it's still got plenty of potential for a memorable Dream Home experience.

    Is it time for HGTV to discover Ojai, CA? Refresh your senses surrounded by rolling hills and panoramic vistas in a casual country setting northwest of Los Angeles and east of Santa Barbara. With a population of about 8,000, this peaceful yet progressive city (pronounced Oh-high) is home to a number of celebrities and provides a peaceful escape for tourists from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and its surrounding suburbs.

    Offering boutique hotels and a wealth of recreational activities as well as spiritual retreats and a farmers' market with organically grown produce on Sundays, Ojai wisely prohibits chain stores by city law to encourage local businesses and retains a friendly, small-town feel.
    http://www.ojaivisitors.com/

    Here are several selections that have strong Dream Home possibilities, with as much or as little renovation as HGTV might choose:

    Follow the brick pathway to this charming Ojai home: $895,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/421-Los-Alamos-

    2.5 acre panoramic mountain view property: $1,295,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1130-Rancho-Dr-

    Tuscan style estate with guest quarters: $1,695,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/12617-Macdonald

    Your very own private chateau with all the amenities: $1,750,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/108-Farnham-Rd-

    Want it all? This grand retreat could be yours… IF you can get HGTV to pitch in a few more dollars to cover the extra cost! $4,395,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3860-Grand-Ave-

    Country scene of Ojai Valley: http://www.ojaicoldwell.com/wp-content/uploads/20

    The upscale Ojai Spa Resort: http://www.ojairesort.com/images/masthead/spa-hom

    A colorful sunset in Ojai: https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7006/6469753249_4cf

    Oh my, could a stunning Southern California Ojai Dream Home be in our future?

    DBCoop on June 4, 2016 at 12:57 pm
    • Beautiful homes, Coop, but for me the favorite is the first one with the brick pathway at $895,000. Three bedrooms and 3 bathrooms would be fine and I like the style.

      The Ojai Spa Resort would be a great place to spend a few days but the room rates start at around $400 a night from what I could tell so it would be a short stay. :)

      DesignABCs on June 5, 2016 at 10:39 am
  227. Congrats, but I thought the 2016 HGTV smart home was in Raleigh NC, and there was a Mercedes and $100, 000 prize.

  228. Best Wishes to a nice family. It's nice when good people win.

    Shirley on June 3, 2016 at 4:27 am
  229. So happy to see that two special people along with their family have won such a beautiful home with the other prizes. I enter often and keep praying for a chance to be a winner.

    Kay Bennett on June 3, 2016 at 3:41 am
  230. It's highly suspicious to me that so many seemingly perfect people are always winning. for the most part people don't have big families and lots of friends and can be ambushed.. I have a feeling they keep drawing names and google people and research the potential wnners until the come to someone they can actually ambush. cause I know if they picked me there would be not much ambushing since I am house bound and also no friends or family members..how boring of a story they would have with me..lol .. funny I think they are not honest and do not choose the first picked name.

    elenor on June 2, 2016 at 11:09 am
  231. It is clear that the winners are pre-selected.

    Dave on June 2, 2016 at 9:20 am
  232. Congratulations, I'm always disappointed at the end of these when we don't win, but seeing people like Dave and his family win, it;s all good. Enjoy and God bless, :-)

  248. I didn't like this house,I love it. I entered every day after I saw it on TV. I sent between 200 & 300 postcards. I congratulate the winner. I would probably have dropped dead on the spot. And I can't believe he didn't take the home but the money. That's the most beautiful house I ever saw. I wanted it so, so bad.I saw on an ad that there is a raffer or something Sunday on HGTV for house, but I can't find out how to enter. I'm 63 & live with my mother. I've never owned a house; but I've sure owned this one in my dreams. I've already figured out who gets which rooms & have been making ocean pictures (adult coloring) to match the rooms. Moma is not legally blind but can't see well, I give her the blue room right under me so she could call to me if needed in the night. Oh, I wish I was smarter & new how to enter this raffle I think they called it. I love it, live it, dream it . . I'n totally obsessed with it. I am retired now & live with my Mother. We take care of one another. If anyone can tell me how to enter, my e-mail is bebo@lowcountry.com. Thanks, & congrats again on the winning family; they got some great prizes.

  257. Congratulations to the Rennie family! Most people would chalk this up to luck. But my wife and I know that this was a true blessing from God! My wife has registered for the 2016 Giveaway in Raleigh, NC. And if anybody deserves to win, it is her! She has been an educator for 27 years and because it is a known fact that teachers are highly underpaid, you know that she's not doing it for the money. She has truly been blessed with a gift and has a deep passion for teaching. Her track record is impeccable and she has accomplished so much during her tenure, making a lasting impression on children and parents. Here are a few honorable mentions:

    *Teacher of the Year 2013
    *Winner of the Beulah Padgett Whichard Honored Educator Scholar Award (from among 300 teachers selected from the state of North Carolina)
    *One of her children's grandparents flew in from India to personally meet her because they had heard so many great things about her and were elated that their grandchild's education was under her tutelage
    *A few of her students on an occasion or two chose to stand next to her rather than play during recess because they didn't want to be apart from her (they feel that motherly love)
    *After working a while with a student that could barely read, the child jumped up from her seat in the middle of class and yelled, "I finally get it!" (that's called going above and beyond)

    There are so many things that the public doesn't see that takes s place. Even so, my wife still remains humble. Another part of our story is that after four years, our landlord wants to sell the home we're in and we have to be out by June 15th, which means that we have to move on the weekend of our daughter's graduation, which is on June 10th. We also need to purchase a new vehicle so our daughter can travel back and forth to college. My wife truly deserves to win this Giveaway, which will be beneficial to more than just us. We are going to open reading institutions across the country to help curve the ever increasing illiteracy and dropout rates. Our country is building 20 jails to every 1 university, which is based on 3rd grade reading scores. Currently, less than 35% of high school seniors can read on their grade level. So we have a lot of work that needs to be done to prepare our children early..We already have the business plan and a patent for the idea pending. By bringing this idea into fruition, we can help hundreds of thousands, even millions, of children around the nation, giving them an opportunity to succeed. Because this Giveaway will solve many issues that my wife and I face, we are believing that God will bless us as one of this year's winners for the Raleigh area! As for the Rennie family, the best is yet to come!

  258. Every time someone wins these homes, they are always white, old, and living in a small town. It would be nice to let someone else win sometime.

  262. Looking to the future: Possible Dream Home 2017 locations with renovation potential? After a waterfront gem in Florida for 2016, how about heading in a northwesterly direction? Could the next Dream Home adventure be in the Mount Rushmore state of South Dakota, nestled Rapid City-close with the scenic Black Hills as a backdrop?

    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/f6

    With many more for HGTV to choose from, here's a sampling of potential properties for Dream Home 2017:

    Luxurious country living with forever scenic views: $678,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5120-Skyview-Dr

    Gracious former Governors Mansion set within nearly 15 acres: $699,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3777-Anderson-R

    5,000 square feet of rustic grandeur on 4 treetop acres: $709,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/10901-Echo-Ridg

    Then there's always the perfect home that's just a tad over budget:

    Spacious, amenity-filled retreat on 5 private acres: $1,495,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/23765-Pine-Have

    It's time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLpksRh1ogI

    DBCoop on May 18, 2016 at 11:50 pm
    • I'm going with the luxurious country home with the forever views, Coop. It's beautiful, starting with the arched double entry doors. That would make a nice dream home and ready to move in.

      DesignABCs on May 22, 2016 at 10:36 am
    • So, DesignABCs, you're going to pass on the 5 acre luxury estate? Though I admit that country living view home is a beauty.

      DBCoop on May 23, 2016 at 11:35 pm
      • Let's make a deal, Coop. You buy it and I'll try it. :) ;)

        DesignABCs on May 24, 2016 at 10:00 am
  263. Wow, what a "dream"! I think of all the HGTV dream homes I've seen (I haven't kept up with them all) I would want to win the one from Colorado, due to the biking and hiking trails nearby. I remember thinking it'd be cool to win so I could go snowboarding up there (not that I've ever tried it yet), but I hardly entered due to the fact that I never knew when to start. This time I will have to pay more attention!

  271. Congratulations! I pray that I win the next giveaway! I have been entering the HGTV for years, and I watch HGTV daily. I am currently recovering from having a tumor removed from my brain almost a year ago, and I had to leave my home to move in with my daughter, I am also working towards my MSW (Master of Social Work. It would be such a blessing to win the next sweepstakes in Raleigh, N.C. considering I am well enough to take care of my 3 year old twin grand daughters and my Dad who is 88 years old.

  277. I entered everyday single day for this house, but still didn't win, that's ok at least someone that needed the house won.
    I hope I win the next house. I have 3 boys and live in a two bedroom apartment. My mother is homeless and she lives in a mini store age building with no bathroom kitchen or anything. She is on disability also her husband isn't working and he was declared disabled by his doctors and can't get his disability approved he has been trying for 1 year and still no disability. I would have them move in with me but I have no space we are a family of 5 living in a two bed room apartment. I have a 17 year old, 15 year old and 12 year old sons. We have tried to get into a house but my credit score just isn't high enough. My dream is to be a home owner some day. My only hope is to win so I can have my mom live with me and she can have a home too. I would love for my boys to live in a house so we can be comfortable and they could have a yard to play outside in.

  287. What a blessing! My husband and I are applying for the HGTV home in Raleigh, NC. This home is beautiful! We have an interesting story too. Our landlord informed us after four years that he wants to sale. He wants us to move by June 15th. My daughter graduates from high school June 10th. I have family coming from everywhere and I don't even know where we are going to be living. Stay tuned, it gets more interesting!

  293. Dream Home 2016 now has an offer pending. The current status of the listing is "contingent."

    We'll see if the sale goes through and the purchase price. It could be a fairly quick sale.

    DBCoop on May 3, 2016 at 7:56 pm
    • Over $1,400,000 for sure.

      DesignABCs on May 4, 2016 at 10:09 am
  294. Could these be some of the things you're looking for in an HGTV Dream Home? Lake views? Waterfront? Surrounded by natural beauty with plenty of outdoor activities? A world-famous spa city with an intriguing history? It all sounds ideal to me.

    Well then, where might HGTV consider searching for the next dreamy location? I'd venture to say that Hot Springs, Arkansas has got what it takes to merit top billing. Here's a link to refresh your memory about the city that sprang up around one of our country's original National Parks: http://www.hotsprings.org/

    Now that you know a little more about Hot Springs, AR, you can check out some of the dreamy homes HGTV could get for its money in this friendly bit of Americana….

    A gracious custom home with private lake: $409,500 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/184-Gardens-Gat

    Waterfront residence waiting for the perfect renovation: $449,900 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/115-Bridgeview-

    Lakeside masterpiece with stunning views: $599,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/113-Caladium-Lo

    Live the life of your dreams in this lakefront beauty: $769,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/34-Stonegate-Sh

    Looking for something elegant and truly move-in ready? Try one of these beauties… but get those guest rooms ready right away. They'll be in strong demand!

    Gracious year-round Southern living: $1,295,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/155-Dellmere-Dr

    A grand, masterfully crafted estate on 3 acres: $1,900,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/210-Whispering-

    I think this photo says it all… so come on down, folks, sit back, relax, enjoy the waters and step back somewhere in time: http://images.trvl-media.com/media/content/shared

    DBCoop on May 3, 2016 at 12:20 pm
    • Not an easy choice, Coop, because there are several good possibilities. I like the custom house with the private lake and the lakeside home with great views for $599,000.

      DesignABCs on May 3, 2016 at 10:58 pm
    • On second thought, I'll go with the estate on 3 acres. :)

      DesignABCs on May 4, 2016 at 10:07 am
      • That 3 acre estate for $1,900,000 is definitely a beauty, but for the money I think I'll go for your first choice, DesignABCs, the lakeside home with the great views for $599,000.

        DBCoop on May 12, 2016 at 9:02 am
  295. You've truly been blessed, praise God. Enjoy your new home and the many memories you'll have there.

  305. How do you put a price on your dreams… or price a Dream Home for that matter?

    First of all, there's the cachet that comes with being a nationally-known HGTV Dream Home. Add in totally remodeled and updated, consider the home is replete with upscale furnishings and then finished by professional interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. How do you quantify desirability?

    Well, put your eye for architectural appeal, livability and high-end style to the test. Browse these HGTV Dream Home neighbors and see what you think. Then pull your thoughts together and place a listing price on this very sought-after Dream Home.

    It won't be long before the home comes to market and the asking price is posted — unless some eager buyer snaps it up before it even appears in the MLS!

    Here are some of the nearby Merritt Island real estate offerings:

    1. Manicured oasis on the IntraCoastal: $1,050,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2495-S-Tropical

    2. Paradise found on over two acres: $1,250,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4411-Crooked-Mi

    3. Sophisticated custom-built beauty: $1,300,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/6704-S-Tropical

    4. Impeccable Mediterranean style in a riverfront residence: $1,500,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4781-Honeyridge

    5. Crème de la crème gated estate with tropical views: $2,250,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/120-Honeymoon-H

    Your thoughts… Pick a number for this Grand Prize wonder. Will the Dream Home 2016 list price — as furnished — reach the Sweepstakes ARV of $1,389,201? Come in below it? Or soar well beyond?

    DBCoop on April 23, 2016 at 7:26 pm
    • $1,530,000 seems to be the amount they're looking for according to zillow a minute or so ago.

  309. NEWS FLASH! David Rennie has decided to take the cash option of over $1,200,000 rather than taking title to the dreamy Merritt Island grand prize. That means HGTV Dream Home 2016 will be coming to market soon, so get your checkbooks out. Listing price yet to be determined.

    http://www.floridatoday.com/story/news/2016/04/20

    DBCoop on April 20, 2016 at 9:47 pm
    • I'll start saving my pennies. LOL.

      dreamn_again on April 20, 2016 at 11:36 pm
      • A penny for your thoughts, the saying goes. Well, here's something to think about… for a few seconds at most! One million dollars would take 100,000,000 pennies. Each of the newer pennies (since 1983) weigh 2.5 grams each, which totals out to 250,000,000 grams. That translates into 551,156 pounds, or about 275 tons worth of pennies.

        Aside from counting them all, better bring in the heavy equipment to cart all those pennies to the bank!

        The first question, though, would be where are you going to store all those pennies while you're saving them up?!

        And in other inconsequential news, you think YOU have a storage problem? The US mints around 30 million pennies PER DAY! That's more than 13 billion pennies each year.

        Now if you could just get your hands on a little over 3 days worth of newly minted 1 cent coins, you'd be close to your goal of 100,000,000 pennies, or $1 million!

        Furthermore, that lowly penny; well it costs .93 of a cent to produce, earning a profit for the US Mint of .07 of a cent on every one. That profit helps fund the operation of the Mint and the US public debt… but obviously it's still not quite enough to keep the debt load from climbing!

        On reflection, I'd say that writing a check to pay for your Dream Home purchase is the easier way to go. ^_^

        DBCoop on April 21, 2016 at 4:41 pm
        • Thanks, Coop, I'll pass on the pennies idea. But I'd have to think first before writing a check for over one million dollars to buy the Dream Home. That's serious money. :)

          DesignABCs on April 23, 2016 at 11:08 am
    • Thanks DBCoop,
      That's odd that they're selling the property with the boat???

      havanera on April 25, 2016 at 9:32 pm
    • I just looked that up and saw that t was for sale. I sure wish I had the money for that home.

      Sherri on April 28, 2016 at 7:43 pm
      • $1,530,000

        Sherri on April 28, 2016 at 7:45 pm
    • Thanks DBCoop.
      I figured they would take the cash option. It's a nice chunk of change plus two nice toys.

      Leewardmark on May 2, 2016 at 3:45 pm

  312. Dream Home 2016 is now only a fond memory for all but the Rennie family. While they still have a big decision to make — take title to the home or choose the cash option — the rest of us are left to ponder whether we'll be the lucky winner in 2017. But where might that exciting new location be?

    I'm thinking that an intriguing spot for the next Dream Home would be in the very highly rated small town of Galena, Illinois. Set amidst rolling hills with a modest population of 3,500, this popular and picturesque town's historic district, loaded with charming 19th century architecture, is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is listed as a must-see and a recommended stop when cruising by steamboat on the nearby Mississippi River.

    A little more about Galena: http://www.galena.org/

    Of course, you'll want to know what kind of Dream Home possibilities you can get for your money in Galena:

    Lovely 1870 traditional brick home set on a hilltop above Galena with commanding views: $385,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/113-S-Prospect-

    Going up? Check out this extraordinary home with its own impressive viewing tower and deck: $429,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4-Buckeye-Ct-Ga

    Elegance is everywhere you look in this custom-built Mississippi River view home: $549,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8622-Fisher-Rd-

    A stunning lakeside retreat on seventy-one, yes, 71, acres: $679,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/27-Harbor-Dr-Ga

    Fine living from sunrise to midnight and beyond in this thoughtfully designed oasis: $785,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/15-Sunrise-Trl-

    Finally, here is a healthy stretch for the HGTV budget that's worth every penny!

    An idyllic estate that's 1 in 1.6 million! $1,600,000 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/43-E-Point-Dr-G

  323. AND NOW… HGTV reveals a peek at David Rennie's Florida welcome to view his new Dream Home Grand Prize which included a dinner for 85 lucky attendees catered by Crush Eleven of Cocoa Village….

    Rather than having me share the details, you'd probably like to read it for yourself! Sounds like a fun time was had by all.

    • Thanks so much, Coop. A great story about Dave Rennie's Dream Home visit. Wish I could have been one of those 85 guests at the catered dinner. :)

      DesignABCs on April 18, 2016 at 3:24 pm
  324. Congrats to David and his family. I hope I be the next person to win. Being homeless and trying my hardest to keep up with HGTV is mind blowing. I watch from my phone. I pray that we all win a house or vacations from HGTV. Thanks for the opportunities you are giving people especially me because I feel there's hope out there.

  337. Will Dream Home 2016 winner David Rennie, wife Margaret and family try their luck at surfing in the waters off of Cocoa Beach while enjoying their beautiful new grand prize in Merritt Island?

    Whether on the beach or in the water, here's what they can look forward to:

    DBCoop on April 12, 2016 at 9:59 am
    • Looks like winds are moderate today and seas are choppy so the Rennie's will probably skip the surfing lessons, Coop.

      DesignABCs on April 16, 2016 at 9:42 am
      • Hopefully it won't rain on the Dream Home parade, with partly cloudy skies and mid-70's.

        DBCoop on April 16, 2016 at 1:01 pm
  338. Thanks so much DeerSpring. Many great DIY Blogs out there. We have found ones in South Carolina, North Carolina, Hawaii and yes even one from Seattle. Many creative people out there! Just love the Road Signs of all the 20 Dream Homes and when she said "Ah what a true Dream Home" we totally agree. Thanks Again DeerSpring!

  345. Seems to have gone to a deserving family! I'll be honest I already pictured myself there and was planning my housewarming lol…. but I believe everything happens for a reason! Congratulations!

    Jen on April 8, 2016 at 1:24 pm
  346. Congratulations on your win! Please remember to place a memorial wreath on your dock in memory of the worker who lost his life while making this dream home so beautiful

    inez on April 8, 2016 at 8:49 am
  347. That is, it wouldn't have made good TV. The winner needs to be someone others can rally 'round and support and say, yeah, good going'….you earned it and deserve it. Wish these sites would add an "edit" feature to their comments. There's always something to correct or an afterthought to add.

    qualitymatters on April 7, 2016 at 4:47 pm
  348. Anyone have a ball-park, guess-estimate as to the odds of winning this contest? Good thing it wasn't moi….absent the loving family, friends and blessings from above, it would have been an extraordinarily dull moment at best, pitiful at worst. Seems there's a reason certain people win over others.

    qualitymatters on April 7, 2016 at 4:41 pm
  349. Congrats happy for them relax enjoy … Have wonderful time enjoying precious time together much deserved…

    Donna Kelly on April 7, 2016 at 5:25 am

  356. Easy choice for me, take the money and run!
    I'm not sure with his medical history if he would have the cash to pay all the taxes.
    Still, getting to see the DH on the winners weekend would be a fantastic vacation regardless if he takes the home or not.

    Eugenia27 on April 6, 2016 at 1:16 pm
    • A recent article on the Dream Homes said that all of the winners felt it was “well worth”
      the experience, including the Texas Dream Home winner. The Rennie family will surely
      have some exciting times ahead whatever they decide to do : )

      DeerSpring on April 6, 2016 at 6:18 pm
  357. Congratulations on your big win, and happy to hear you found a kidney and survived, thanks to God.

    • I agree. Keep that home. I wish I could buy it .

      slyfoxsherri on April 4, 2016 at 11:21 am
  377. glad for the winner and his family. i hope they can enjoy it and keep it.its not right that the taxes are so full of it that people cant keep the homes and enjoy them.we are taxed too much in this country. when is the priatecey gonna stop and people are free like america is to be. alot of families dont have homes due to the crazy and its so wrong. too bad we dont have honest hard working gov officals doing their jobs right and honest to the american people. they suppose to be working for us not for their pockets. so much wealth no one should not have a home food healtcare . such a shame and all the animals without homes cause no one can afford to take care of them too. so much wrong is being done. lord pray for us.

    guest on April 3, 2016 at 8:26 pm
  378. I was so hoping to win this gorgeous home, so hoping, but since I didn't win it I am so glad this man and his family will be enjoying it. I lost my sister to a failed kidney transplant so I have great empathy for Mr. Rennie and what he has had to endure to get to this point in his life. So if I couldn't win the house I am so glad someone like Mr. Ronnie is going to enjoy this house and have it for his own. Maybe next time I will be the lucky winner. Keep hoping……

  450. Not only do I have tears in my eyes for being the lucky winner of your transplant, being the winner of this beautiful home, but reading all the comments from others in this great country of ours is overwhelming!. Nice to see something so fun to bring so many together. Congratulations! You and your family deserve this special moment.

  451. So happy for David and his family. Congratulations and God's blessings.

    Carla on April 1, 2016 at 9:27 am
  452. I love how HGTV removes comments when questioned about something as in the case of this home being leaked Mar 20th by his friend blabbing it all over FB. It was ruined for all of us hoping and waiting. And no not being jealous, but I think it should be questioned…….. .http://www.examiner.com/article/hgtv-dream-home-2016-winner-leaked-profile-of-hgtv-dream-home-winner-for-2016

  454. Hi David, Congratulations!!! My husband's family helped settle Merritt Island, and we spend a lot of time there because my Father-in-law still lives there. It's a great area! When you are looking around the island, go see the Sam's House on Pine Island. That's the family homestead that is now a museum. There are lots of other things I could tell you about the area, but I'm sure you will have time to explore. Check out the European bakery and shops in Cocoa Village. Have a great time in Merritt Island!!

    Marilyn on April 1, 2016 at 9:14 am
  455. David & Family,
    Enjoy your new get-away!

    Sue on April 1, 2016 at 8:35 am
  456. We bloggers had a "heads up" on this because of the Facebook leak! Congratulations to Mr. Rennie and family! That must have been quite an experience for everyone in church to be part of this wonderful surprise!! I can understand why someone would be so excited to post it on Facebook!! I'm so happy for the family–this 20th anniversary Dream Home was pretty spectacular. I read an item on the Internet, don't know if it's true or not, that in honor of the 20th anniversary, HGTV might waive the taxes on this home so that the winner can move in more easily, if that's what they want to do. That would be an extra wonderful blessing if HGTV does do that!!

    TikasMom on April 1, 2016 at 8:27 am
    • Well, that could be possible as 'Examiner.com' reports that HGTV has a little something in store for the winner that has not been advertised! The author speculates it might be those pesky taxes so the winner might keep the home!?! http://www.examiner.com/article/hgtv-dream-home-2…. Last paragraph! Good for them! I hope they do it!!!!

      Shawn on April 1, 2016 at 8:42 am

I know a lady with five kids and she lost her job of 12 years and they would not even give her unemployment at all this women and kids are struggling so bad its sad this lady is looking for work why don't HGTV be a blessing to people like that let somebody like her or anybody else like her win I am sure something like that would help a family like that but HGTV decides to award DAVID AND HIS WIFE they look like they are not struggling to me I bet they already have a home and money they don't need that home or money or truck why don't they give it to somebody who really needs it.

HGTV could have given that home to a family that's really in need not to DAVID and his wife they look like they already have a home and money they are not struggling for nothing I would have not given that home to DAVID at all period no way he would have won nothing why don't you give the home to a family that is really struggling and need help.

    Congratulations! We live just across the Indian River in Rockledge, a little north of your new home. What a wonderful place to live! Trust me, your going to love it here. We have lived here a little over seven years and all I can say is, we didn't get here soon enough. It will sure beat up north in the wintertime! My daughter and I drove by the house just the other day and said some lucky family will certainly love this! Hope you love it as much as we love it here. Best wishes in your new home! Rhonda and Terry

    Annette on March 31, 2016 at 4:58 pm
  602. I do think they manually select a winner but not randomly. They pick someone that will appeal to the public.They don't want a single person with no family, they want someone that is middle class or better, not a low income person down on their luck. A church goer is a big plus. As is someone with a past or present illness. They usually pick someone middle age, someone that already has a lot of money and isn't struggling financially.
    How about picking someone that doesn't already have a house? Someone that really needs the vehicle and the house? How about picking someone that has been renting their whole life and has never gotten a break! Someone that would really appreciate it?
    I agree, it's not fair how they "choose" a winner!

    Sadie on March 31, 2016 at 4:57 pm

    kelly on March 31, 2016 at 4:55 pm

Blessings to you and your family! May we all be encouraged to bend our knee and lift our voices! Praise Him from whom all blessings flow! May Joy unspeakable bear witness of Him through you and In you! For it is not how we begin but in how we finish! To hear Him say, "Well done my good and faithful servant!" Take Joy in the harvest with the wife of your youth! One In Christ, Becky

    I, too, live in Shelton, CT and I entered twice EVERY day of the sweepstakes! I kept my house clean for many days hoping that HGTV would show up at my doorstep! If I ever saw their vehicle driving around Shelton, I would have been so VERY excited thinking it was me who won the house in Florida.

    You have been through a lot and truly deserve some happiness.

    Good Luck and Good Health in your new home!

    Sincerely,
    Judy Gamble

  639. Congratulation! I would like to know how they tell the daughters and his church first? How does HGTV get that information? We only enter our email address, address and phone number when entering the contest. Seems odd that HGTV is able to conduct an ambush without him knowing…

  648. Absolutely. Everyone is happy. I think what HGTV can do better is secure the surprise a bit more. It ruins the experience for folks, for some others, the hope… since, indeed, comments here announced the Rennie's over two weeks ago now. Please, HGTV, look into your procedures for this….

    Julie on March 31, 2016 at 2:09 pm
  714. I'm happy for them too, but I will say that I am highly suspicious of HGTV's process on selecting a winner. If I'm not mistaken, in the official rules they reserve the right to disqualify any winner for any reason they see fit. The fact that the winners past and present seem to neatly fit into a particular demographic leads me to believe they want their prizes going to a certain type of person. If you knew you would be disqualified even if your name is selected because your credit score was too low, your age was wrong, or income level was too low, what's the point in entering? I've entered for years, but I will no longer waste my time as long as they fail to disclose exactly what criteria they use to disqualify winners.

    Terry on March 31, 2016 at 2:08 pm
    • If you were putting on a sweepstakes your lawyers would tell you to have the same verbiage in your official rules. It doesn't signal any intent other than to prevent frivolous lawsuits from folks who see them giving a million away so there must be more where that came from.

      dreamn_again on March 31, 2016 at 4:52 pm
      • Everyone should have an equal chance under a random drawing. The fact that they can disqualify a winner for any reason they want is rather despicable to me. They could at least post, "No poor white trash with a credit score below 750." At least they would be honest about their bigotry. If that is how they conduct themselves at HGTV, perhaps it's time I changed the channel.

        Terry on March 31, 2016 at 6:29 pm
        • You're projecting your own ideas of what "reflect badly on the sponsors" means. The sponsors would get negative publicity if the random winner happened to be on a list of sexual predators, was an incarcerated criminal or had a DUI record a mile long. There's no evidence they've ever checked anyone's credit score, and once someone won theycould choose a cash option or sell the property would clear hundreds of thousands of dollars after income taxes which would payoff most anyone's debts. If you want a milion dollar prize giveaway with no conditions whatsover, go ahead and make one. Nobody is stopping you.

          • I think you are being incredibly naive if you think only a criminal past could be used to disqualify a winner whose name has been drawn. HGTV makes millions by holding these "giveaways" while promoting them as the luck of the draw. Most people don't read the fine print. I'm sure all involved has had to sign nondisclosure agreements so we will never know.

    You won't believe the shock I received when I saw the announcement that you'd won the HGTV Dream Home. You see, I truly believed that I would be the winner. I prayed for this and I really believed that God would answer "yes". I've been waiting each day for them to "ambush" me. So imagine my disappointment…

    All that being said, I wish you all the best… again, congratulations!

  857. I guess thats why they call them dreams, Congratulations To David and his family. I am partially disabled and while I do not know much about ESRD it is nice to see someone with some real difficulties win something not that we are more deserving in any way than anyone else, it is just harder sometimes for us to achieve things like owning a home.

  907. Congratulations to you and your family !! I hope you understand what a special house it is. My single parent widowed daughter and I have been watching the Dream House too. It was so her decor and style and she has been dreaming about her office in the media room, her bedroom, her 3 yr old daughters room with the swing and Grandma's visiting room ever since we have been logging on. Grandma 's exact brown hat that I have was laying at the feet of my visiting room.We even planned for a dog for the little one. I know God must have another plan for them. We will hold on to our dreams. Enjoy the house and Florida! We are Floridians.

  908. There was no doubt in my mind that the winner would have to be from the NE and I was right. Why, you ask? Based upon the number of “snow birders” from that area. Random drawing! Phooey. Last time I waste my time entering this rigged sweepstakes.

    john on March 31, 2016 at 8:33 am

    • A winner should be contact to participate in one of the HGTV shows, that will take place near their city. This way the winner will have no clue, will be excited about the opportunity; also, the ambush can be done in a more private setting.

      havanera on March 30, 2016 at 11:36 pm

As you have said many times, it is a win-win opportunity. If they can keep the home what a blessing, if they take the cash, they have the opportunity to make their own dreams.

  926. Just received an announcement E-mail from HGTV announcing the Dream Home 2016 winner and LOL bloopers. (3/30 11:57 am) kind of ironic don't you think. when announced 2/28 on blog and previous friend announcements on the internet prior to 3/17 . I truly hope they get to live in their new gift and enjoy it…

    pattieclemm on March 30, 2016 at 1:51 pm
    • One of my dumb thoughts, How does a guy that lives in OH on 3/20 at 7:29pm get the info on the winner if not there. Who notified him? Breach of disclosure contract. wife POSTS TO CHURCH SITE 3/20 AT 6:25 pm. church post was at 3/20 12:54pm. After her post who called whom???? How does Smiles get his info. wife /family or church?? you tell me…Just my thoughts. I do wonder how he found out>>>>>>

    • I would never keep any of the homes but would love to win one. Even the cash prize after taxes would be a huge gift! I love the entire Home Giveaways program. I love the latest ideas in construction and technology. I love the design process.

      All of the homes listed in your link are beautiful and some lucky someone owns them. The Tahoe home is available to rent for vacations. The Park City home has been enlarged and the neighborhood is now an activity of new construction. Very glad HGTV provides these giveaways!

  973. God's blessing flow like a river! Congrats to David and Margaret on the blessing of this prize! We have been praying over this property that God would use it for HIS GLORY! We lost our son 7 months ago in an accident. He was an organ, eye and tissue donor. We are blessed that his gifts of life has saved/improved the lives of over 9 people thus far. We rejoice that God blessed you with new hope last year with a Kidney and now a place to enjoy your life! We also entered the Dream Home contest with over 1400 entries hoping that we would win but somehow I'm not even disappointed! “You will soon enter the land that the Lord your God is giving you. You will take that land and live there. ~Deuteronomy 26:1 ERV May the Lord continue to bless you as He leads you into the "Promised Land". Sincere congratulations!

    • What a beautiful tribute. Thank you for sharing. May you have peace knowing your son is with the Lord. My brother was a donor also. We feel the loss but know others live on thanks to him. May you have peace.

      Grammynan on March 29, 2016 at 7:02 pm
    • Amen to that sister,
      Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” This verse reflects on the Rennie's winning. I knew the Lord was going to bless a devoted christian this time; I even knew it was going to take place among the church. I thought it was me, so I was even dressing up, and make up on for bible studies and service…lol, but I am rejoicing with God's children.

      May grace and peace from our father God be upon your family!

      - Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

      -For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. HEBREWS 10:36

      - Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

      -More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:35

  976. Are you going to keep the property or sell it ? If so I'm interested in purchasing the property. Congrats on your exciting health news, I had cancer 5 years ago…a life changing event……….I hope you see this, or does HGTV only see this…

  984. Congratulations David!! Very exciting!! I sold the home to HGTV and I live right down the road from it. A nice couple lived there for almost 20 years. I sold it to them when they moved here from Panama!! The sunsets are amazing!!!!

  988. It's so exciting to share their joy, and seeing their reactions in disbelief. It's funny to hear him say that his wife gave him grief every time he entered. Ultimately, faith and patience paid the way. Congratulations! May the Lord continue to shower you with blessings.

    havanera on March 28, 2016 at 6:46 pm
  989. God Bless you Rennie Family! Just when you think that things can't be better (blessed) look what the Lord will do. :) Very nice.

    Take care and enjoy.

    Feel better and enjoy your blessings!

    Hope on March 28, 2016 at 6:18 pm
  991. I'm considering changing my name. Here's why: In May of 2011, a David Rennie and wife Sandra Morgan of Campbell River, British Columbia (near Vancouver) won a whopping $35,738,798 in the Canadian lottery. Then along comes David Rennie and wife Margaret in 2016 of Shelton, CT who are the happy winners of the HGTV Dream Home 2016 Grand Prize package. Two completely different guys with the name of David Rennie, and both amazingly lucky.

    So I'm wondering if I changed my name, could I be in the running for the third big win as David Rennie? Wouldn't that be something! Besides, the name DBCoop has yet to be drawn after all these years of HGTV and DIY Home Sweepstakes. I guess it comes down to a choice between either David Rennie or Someone Else, and Someone Else ALWAYS wins!

    DBCoop on March 28, 2016 at 6:15 pm
    • Cute DBCoop ! I remember when you chatted on the blog with me about how you picked this name on the Anniversary of that event. At the time I was surprised about the "story" which I did recall it when you spoke of that happening. Maybe you better just keep your Own Name, whatever it may be. If you win , please say "hello" and include DBCoop so that we can celebrate with you ! Have a wonderful night and thank you for all the information you share with us.
      Have a great night .and my very best wishes. Also again, best wish to David Rennie !

      Grammynan on March 29, 2016 at 6:12 pm
    • Someone Else should work for you, Coop. Like you said, that name always wins. ;)

      DesignABCs on March 30, 2016 at 11:27 am
    • Someone Else is always a winner, Coop. Go for it.

      DesignABCs on March 30, 2016 at 12:05 pm
  992. David,
    We are so happy for you and your wife. We spent many years watching you and the neighbor kids growing up in our neighborhood. We are so happy for you.

  997. Dear Mr. Anonymous. I bet people really like you (NOT). What an ugly thing to say about the Rennies. They deserve this just as much as anyone else except for you. Even if you had won Mr. Anonymous you would probably still be the sad ugly creature you are. Lighten up and be thankful others win!!

    Kathy on March 28, 2016 at 4:45 pm
    • You are right I shouldn't of said what I did, my comment was removed before I could remove it. And btw i'm not ugly lol. They deserve the house just as much anyone does, correct.

      anonymous on March 29, 2016 at 7:22 pm
      • Thank you, Anonymous
        A wise man correct his errors. That says a lot about your character; we've all have been guilty of one sin or another, and is always easier to point at the sins of others, rather than our own.

      Femi on March 31, 2016 at 2:18 pm
      • Natalie is just being honest. I would have wanted to win myself, but am still happy for him and his family.

  1015. Since the Rennie family was surprised a week ago, I wonder if they've been humming this tune?

    HAPPY DAYS, THEY'RE OURS

    Sunday, Monday, Happy Days,
    Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days,
    Thursday, Friday, Happy Days
    The weekend comes, the motorboat hums
    Ready for the whole Rennie crew

    Goodbye grey sky, hello blue,
    Nothing but sunshine the whole day through
    Feels so right, it's been so long
    We've been waiting to sing this song
    Happy Days, all our dreams came true

    Soakin' up those sunny rays
    Across that water view we'll gaze
    By the pool, on the dock 's where we'll be
    Happy Days, Happy and carefree
    Daytime, nighttime, Happy Days

    Happy Days, They're Ours
    Oh, Happy Days
    And wishin' the same to you!

    DBCoop on March 28, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    Heartfelt best wishes to David Rennie, his wife Margaret and family on their amazing win.

      Need to win on April 2, 2016 at 10:32 pm
    • Hi Coop. The HGTV Smart Home has the photos and videos up. I sure miss the blog. There are so many wonderful things I would love to talk to everyone about.
      Hope you and Terrie are doing well.

      Eugenia27 on March 18, 2017 at 1:38 pm
      • Hey Eugenia,
        I'm here, let's talk!
        So what do you think of the Smart Home?
        Funny, but I hated it at first viewing, but it has really grown on me. I'm now a little obsessed.
        Favorite, hands down, the master bath and closet.
        Least favorite, the dining room. Ugh to that grid on the wall. And ugh to the art except for the cool one by Celery.
        Not that I could ever imagine living in Scottsdale, the heat would kill me, but I do imagine some changes I would make if I ever did live there.
        First thing I'd do is frame out the opening to the dining room and add French doors, preferably wood framed thick glass doors, perhaps like the front door. It would then become the media/ family room. I'd then carve out a dining room space near the back sliders, where the secondary seating area is. I just really don't need a formal dining room and there's plenty of space in the great room for a dining table.
        I'd want to replace all of the iron fencing with solid 3' high stucco walls. Don't need scorpions and snakes taking up residence in my outdoor living space. Oh, and let's add a retractable cover for the pool to stop evaporation.
        The kitchen is pretty awesome. The copper tile seems a bit too blingy for me, but I don't hate it; it probably works in person. I really love the wall of glass fronted book shelves fom Basset. It adds a warm balance to all of the cool modern features. Kinda sad there isn't a gas range top, but really, minor complaint.
        I'd really love to see that fireplace surround in person; I'll bet it's pretty spectacular. A little Frank Lloyd Wright.
        Oh, I'd also add a clear story of glass over the slider leading onto the back porch. That expanse of glass doors is way too short for that tall wall.
        As always, Tiffany does the pantry and laundry room right. Oh, and love the office space too.
        I feel she has really come into her own on this project. Kudos to her.
        I really wish Ut4evr was still around. I know she'd have lots to say about this project.
        So, what do you think of the house Eugenia?
        Oh, almost forgot, what do you think is that rectangular shaped space which is shown on the floor plans that sits right beyond the outside pantry door? It's got to have meant to be something or why else even have a door leading outside there. I guess they ran out of money to complete it, whatever it was meant to be. Or could it possibly be just a walled space for garden supplies, HVAC and garbage cans?

        Addy243 on March 22, 2017 at 11:34 pm
        • Hi!
          My email on my phone hasn’t worked for…… a very long time. I was going through to clean up old emails to save some room on my phone. I was feeling sad because I couldn’t reply but I hit the “go to comment” and hooray I am here!
          What do you think about the new urban oasis? I have always liked craftsman.
          Hope you get this.

          Eugenia27 on October 4, 2017 at 12:37 am
  1024. Congratulations David! Hitting the lottery twice is amazing! Wishing you peace and happiness!

    Shawn on March 28, 2016 at 2:03 pm
    • I wonder what the odd's on winning the lottery twice is. Unbelievable never happens and will never happen again in my life time. I can't wait to see the actual drawing of the Dream Home 2016. Any idea when it will be on or not?.. Proofs in the pudding….

      pattieclemm on March 29, 2016 at 11:17 am
      • He didn't hit the actual lottery twice. They were referring to him receiving his kidney the first time.

        Sabrina on March 31, 2016 at 12:54 pm
        • I know I'm an RN I understand the difference between the two but everybody else just calling it a lottery so I chose to do the same rarely in one lifetime does someone get this lucky

          pattieclemm on March 31, 2016 at 4:16 pm

  1026. Thank you for sharing! And thank you for sharing your previous funny posts and making us all smile :)

    I did not know Tiffany was a kidney transplant recipient, that's just crazy given the circumstances!

    I also did not know about James Sands, that's awful. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

  1028. Guest, if you take the money option in lieu of the home you don't have ANY problems! In comes down to personal choices to what best suits your budget. I have to admit some coincidences are quite miraculous, but if it ever happened to me I'd be grateful and humble about it. At the end of the day they ARE changing someone's life for the better :)

    Shawn on March 30, 2016 at 10:59 am
  1029. I have been posting on other announcement articles about the taxes they will have to pay. With state and federal it will be close to $700K but they only get $250K in cash so they will have to come up with the other $450K out of their pocket and if they can't then they have a huge problem. The best option would be to take the cash option. If I read the fine print right there is a $900K cash option so use the $900K cash option to pay the taxes and keep the rest of the cash.

    John burke on March 30, 2016 at 11:48 am
