Ever since 1997, the Home and Garden TV network has hosted an annual sweepstakes that gives away a fully furnished, custom built dream home that is valued at more than $1 million. Starting January 1, viewers are invited to enter the dream house sweepstakes online. The house is then awarded in a March telecast.
Dream homes of the past have been built in idyllic locations across the U.S. This year’s Dream Home is a ski lodge located in Stowe Vermont. In addition to the home and all its furnishings, the prize package includes a 2011 Acadia Denali and $500,000. Despite the cash prize, most of the past Dream Home winners have been forced to sell their prize home due to tax bills.
