Did You Win the Home?

This morning, HGTV’s Jamie Durie paid a visit to Knoxville, TN. The occasion? To draw the name of the HGTV Green Home 2011 winner from over 22 million entries.

Only he knows the name and location of our grand-prize winner. Pretty exciting, yes? Keep your fingers crossed and your eyes peeled for colorful balloons. And if Jamie comes knocking on your front door, by all means answer it (makeup or no makeup)!

Take a Public Tour of HGTV Green Home 2011

Dying to see our Platinum LEED-certified home in person? Public tours of HGTV Green Home 2011 run through July 3, 2011. Tickets cost $20 each, with net proceeds benefitting Urban Peak, a local, nonprofit organization that provides housing, medical care and counseling to homeless young people.

Tours operate from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets may be purchased online at or at the Stapleton Discovery Center. Tour tickets must be picked up at Will Call in the Stapleton Discovery Center located at Syracuse Street and Martin Luther King Blvd. Parking is available; timed tours depart every 20 minutes via shuttles.

“We are very pleased to help support vital services for the homeless youth of Denver by contributing the net proceeds from the tours of HGTV Green Home 2011 at Stapleton to Urban Peak,” says John Lehigh, president of Forest City Stapleton, Inc, master developer of the former airport. “Because interest in the HGTV Green Home 2011 Giveaway has placed Stapleton in the national spotlight, we will be able to turn the tremendous interest in this fabulous new home into an opportunity to raise funds for an important cause in Metropolitan Denver.”
