The HGTV 2012 Dream Home is ready…for a winner

HGTV's 16th Annual Dream Home Giveaway

The 16th annual HGTV Dream Home - An Island in the Prairie

The 16th annual HGTV Dream Home is located on the banks of the Provo River near Park City, Utah. It’s a modern, rustic ranch home with almost 4,000 square feet of space, including four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

You can enter to win twice daily through 2/17/12, once on, and once on The Winner also drives away a 2012 GMC® Terrain and pockets $500,000.

The plot of land is actually two homesites, and the views were expertly woven into the architecture.
The entire home is elevated on a 2-foot-high perch to maximize 2nd floor river views and to elevate the home above the flood plain.

As you enter the front door on the north side, you pass below one of my favorite features – a sitting area that cantilevers over the front porch with its own Juliet-style balcony. The master has a 2nd private balcony with breathtaking views to the south.

The Douglas fir trusses are stained grey, and joined by mortis and tenon. At the very top of the photo below, you can see the trusses are braced with stainless steel collar ties, a modern-day structural requirement. Plenty of Utah limestone compliments the rustic timber. It’s a 2-inch veneer found on both interior and exterior walls, fireplace surrounds, and the base of structural pillars.

Last year’s Vermont Dream Home had 76 million entries. This includes multiple entries per person…so the odds of winning this $2 million plus package are not too bad. Good Luck!
