KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of the Gulf Coast will be home to one lucky winner of the DIY Network® Blog Cabin® Giveaway, which includes a fully renovated and furnished waterfront home in Panacea, Florida, plus $50,000 provided by national mortgage lender Quicken Loans® and a 2016 Mazda CX-5.
Beginning today through 5 p.m. ET September 26, eligible viewers can enter twice each day – once at DIYNetwork.com and once at HGTV.com – for a chance to win the beautifully renovated home perched on three-and-a-half acres of prime waterfront property in the Florida panhandle. This marks the 10th anniversary of DIY Network Blog Cabin, the first-ever interactive home-building series based on the simple idea: "You Design It, We Build It, You Could Win It!"
"We've touched some amazing parts of the country, but when we ran across this Gulf Coast gem, we knew we'd found what we were looking for," said Chris Grundy, tool expert, do-it-yourselfer and host of DIY Network Blog Cabin 2016. "DIY Network has turned this house into one lucky viewer's paradise."
This year, Grundy again joins forces with other popular DIY Network stars, including crashers Chris Lambton, Matt Muenster, Josh Temple and Alison Victoria, to transform the outdated 1990s coastal home. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home comes complete with its own private dock and entrance to the Gulf of Mexico. The tranquil area boasts dozens of small fishing villages and beach towns with fantastic restaurants and great shopping.
Viewers can watch the renovation process step-by-step each Monday night in August at 9:30 p.m. ET, with each installment of the long-running Blog Cabin series. The whole-house transformation is documented in the premiere of DIY Network Blog Cabin 2016 airing Monday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
