So excited I just entered my last entries to win this beautiful home! If God sees that it should go to someone else in greater need of a place to live, I pray it goes to a Veteran. Someone that has fought for this country yet struggles every day just to make ends meet. I pray the winner is a very needy family that will appreciate the huge blessing of this home.

As for which room I like best? I love the kitchen and every single room of this home. The front bedroom color soothes me and I think that may be where I could take naps when I get tired. The living room is also a great place to welcome friends and family and let them spread out through the house to enjoy all the great art work and memorabilia as I saw it to be.

I watched every show as it was re-built and everyone did such an awesome job on it ! The fact that they payed close attention to things like a nest of aunts near the fireplace showed me how carefully thought out this home really is in every inch of structure. Good Luck to everyone that has entered-and God Bless us all. :) It is time to pick the winner y'all !!!

Hey DBCoop In case there is still the question of Location of the 2016 Dream Home- here is the latest information I found when researched!!

This is the site for the announcement I found http://www.hgtv.com/design/hgtv-dream-home/hgtv-d...

180 Utopia Circle, Merritt Island, FL 32952 !!!! Over 4000 sq ft, so close to the water it is amazing!
Josh Temple gave the location- in the latest video. I looked up the address and found the former MLS listing on it. Enjoy!

Ok experts....which includes almost everyone here. LOL I was thinking about doing the mail entries by the "hundreds". To help our chances of winning. We can do both right?

Does anyone do this? Also- do they tell us if the winner was via mail or online every year in the past?
I know Vicki said online was her choice.

Thanks Liz_HGTV ! I surely wasn't aware the hubby could enter too!!! Wow, no wonder I haven't won yet ! I thought no 2 emails from the same location? Don't know where on earth I read that. Yippee! :)

Smaller- oh yeah that is obvious. Did they note the sq ft? 4TahoeStar54 ? Just curious, and a little concerned about keeping all those windows spotless for that neighborhood!

Wow, you guys know the entire history don't y'all !! I need to catch up with all this info. I've been entering for many years but never actually read the fine print. Glad to be in the Blog with you guys!

Very interesting Lindingo! Thanks for the tax tip on selling it as a possibility! The only tricky part I see is if the taxes become due again before you are able to find a buyer-then you have a real problem!

But at least you have carved out a possible path for someone like me to have this information! Thanks again! (I am still in it this way..lol)

Thanks DBCoop ! At least I can stop looking for them daily.lol So looks like they are opening around every 14-18 months. hmmm. But I can't help it- I will probably keep checking on them weekly at least in case they do a swap on us!.

That's crazy, build a great home and then end up selling it on the open market to recoup the money it cost. So anyone that wins just gets cash. So, why not just make cash the grand prize and forget the home? Business profitbility-bottom line. So that is why they build 2-4 homes a year-just to get a huge write off????

Hey I answered my own question rofl. Marketing strategy for HGTV- build a home, with mostly free stuff because the makers of the products inside get free advertising on the show. Then give the winner cash- take a loss on a huge home because the value isn't actually correct at 2 million?

It's all done for a business loss write off? wow. Makes it kind of foolish that millions of people go nuts for home they can never keep. Again- it's sad and pathetic. But, I am one of them still dreaming of winning. duh. :(
