The 2014 HGTV Dream Home
2014 HGTV Dream Home
This was the 6th home that I've chronicled from beginning to end.
HGTV ran late this year with the clues for the next Dream Home location. Last year we had our first clue by April 12. They finally made reference to the Dream Home 2014 in their blog on May 21st 2013, and the first clue came two days later. As clues were given I posted them here until we found out the official 2014 location. It's in California near Lake Tahoe!
The grand prize included a furnished 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, 3,200 sq ft home located in the four-season family community of Schafferâs Mill, a $250,000 cash prize, and a 2015 GMC Yukon Denali.
This contest's entry period ended February 14, 2014 and the winner was announced on March 18th.
