Intriguing new Facebook video with hints of Dream Home 2017 starring Josh Temple, the Georgia boys 'Sons of Sawdust' and a water view.

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:

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.

"Traverse City?" whistled the old cowhand incredulously... but if folks knew the truth about Traverse City they'd be singing its praises! It has been named among the top 5 small town travel destinations in the US and among the 10 best places to retire.

So you did good, nursejudyfromCA. ^_^

And then... "104 plus miles by bike?" whistled this old blogger enviously! I manage to get around local neighborhoods riding my bike, though I think it might be something more like 10.4 miles that I consider a good day's ride -- with the caveat of "never in the summer heat!"

Bois Blanc Island in the Straits of Mackinac and surrounded by the waters of Lake Huron sounds like a perfect getaway, Lindingo. Not unlike a quaint Martha's Vineyard setting.

Putting the location of Urban Oasis 2016 aside for the moment, where should you live in Michigan? Take this quiz to find out.

Of course, if you happen to win Urban Oasis 2016, all bets are off because the answer would naturally be Ann Arbor. Unfortunately, that wasn't the response I got, but then it's not very scientific, is it? (Maybe they should have included a question or two about the Urban Oasis...)

Still, I don't think Mackinac Island is a bad suggestion either. Just not in wintertime. The ski-in, ski-out of the grocery store idea doesn't really appeal to me.

My pleasure, nursejudy. Now, onward to victory, or at least a well-played game!

And we thought they'd never end!

I think that while the DIY Blog may be pensioned off into retirement, the Blog Cabin itself will continue on, long and strong, earning the usual heaps of accolades from Blog Cabineers for years to come.

So Happy Blog Cabin, and many more.

Thanks, gbfla. Glad to know you enjoyed my little bit of DIY poetry. ^_^

Let's face it, we're on this book's last chapter
Where to blog's a fuss, now it's Twitter we must.
Too late for a telegram, just send us right to Instagram
And if you've got the interest, go ahead, invest some time in Pinterest

Still, despite life's ch-ch-changes, the question remains the same: Dream Home 2017's mysterious southern location? Seems the guessing part remains the same!

As much as we love our HGTV Smart Homes, you'll have to admit that there can be downsides to being so smart. Here are just a couple of examples...

Oh well, minor issues aside, for the HGTV Smart Homes of the future, you'll want to keep your eye on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest -- a point that's no longer a matter of intense debate.
