HOWELL, Mich., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan resident, Cynthia Weaver, was selected from more than 1.2 million entries to receive a $50,000 bathroom remodel from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery. Weaver will receive the bathroom of her dreams featuring premium Kohler® products. The remodel with include a new toilet, sinks, faucets, showering system, bathtub, cabinets, countertops, lighting, wall covering and flooring. A Ferguson showroom consultant from Ann Arbor, Mich. as well as professional remodeler, Paulson's Construction, will execute the renovation project.

"I was right in the middle of an unsuccessful bathroom remodel, so went online to look for ideas and came across the Ferguson Dream Bathroom Giveaway," said grand prize winner Weaver. "I entered the contest almost every day, but didn't think I would ever win. I cannot put into words my level of excitement when I received the news that I had actually been chosen!"

Paul McClorey, President of Paulson's Construction, commented, "We look forward to working with Ferguson on this job to make Cynthia's dream bathroom a reality. Her current bathroom is rather small and cramped, typical of homes built in the mid-1970s. We will completely change the space and create a spa-like experience."

"Cynthia has a lot of great ideas about the design of her dream bathroom and our role is to educate and guide her Kohler product selections to fit the design scheme," said Heidi Gillespie, Ferguson showroom manager in Ann Arbor, Mich. "The bathroom is going to be amazing and we can't wait to see the end result when it's complete."

This is the second year Ferguson has sponsored the Dream Giveaway contest. Last year, a family from Delaware won a $75,000 kitchen remodel.
