  3. I hope everyone is enjoying the virtual tour as much as I am. ^_^ Great images and a fantastic design, as we knew it would be. Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said so a big thanks to Scripps Network, DIY, HGTV Remodels, Dylan Eastman, the builders and craftsmen, the Crashers, Chris Grundy, Mary & Laura (I hope I've included everyone) and, last but not least, the bloggers for a very entertaining show this year. Good luck to all in the sweepstakes, stay safe and enjoy your summer. Maybe we'll meet again on the blog for the next BC. :)

    • Nice to hear from you Clive. The tour is great. I was so happy they kept the fireplace mantel. They did a great job of reusing so much of the original house.

  6. Hey everyone looks like the DIY crew did it again!!!! #one top stuff in colors, design, and artistic ability, makes me so envious. The sun is shinning brightly on the Blog Cabin, except for the north side…did they run out of video space or film for the cameras, or is that where all of the oooopppppsssss are hidden at..LOL In the beginning the north side was where they were all hiding their greatest works with the tents in the rain and fog /wind…It has been a pleasure to check in and follow along with everything that's been going on with the remodel . thank you for allowing me to follow along…Karen's husband ,,Carl__

    • Indeed Lester. Here is a thumps up for you, since it seems that the sorry troll master is around here giving thumps down again.

      havanera on July 16, 2013 at 11:23 am
    • I haven't seen any thumbs down, am I missing something?

      nanwes on July 16, 2013 at 11:25 am
    • When you post a comment or reply to a comment, automatically gets you a +1, when you see a 0 is someone giving a thumbs down. And yes, there is someone going around doing that.
      Initially I thought it was on some comments made that weren't really related to the blog home. Now I see that is just for heck of it. On the comments about the beauty of the construction and the home, earlier today, I started seeing those again. So, what I have to say about that is if you're not happy about the home or the blog; get out, as simple as that.

      havanera on July 16, 2013 at 2:06 pm
    • I agree!! The colors are perfect …. exactly what's been floating in my head lately! The home is light, warm, perfect.

      djpetty7 on July 21, 2013 at 9:13 am
    • I agree..!! Color scheme and furniture pieces are perfectly matching to each other. Loving it..!!

  8. Does anyone know why I now just have my name and how long ago I blogged? On HGTV dream home I had the numbers attached to my name for posts and not here for some reason.

    nanwes on July 16, 2013 at 11:21 am
    • Just now when I started to answer you at the bottom of this reply box it asked if I want to reply as a guest or login with intensdebate or wordpress. I'm going to login. Lets hope I remember my password.

      Eugenia27 on July 17, 2013 at 2:25 pm
    • I went back and logged in again, but it still isn't put numbers in, guess they don't matter ?:S

      nanwes on July 18, 2013 at 8:54 am
    • It doesn't matter here on the Blog Cabin site but you have to be registered with intensdebate to be able to blog on the HGTV sites.

      Eugenia27 on July 20, 2013 at 2:52 pm
    • Actually, I had noticed that with a lot of the bloggie posts??
