  1. The master bath and its layout is so awesome! I love the open shower and tub area. Whoever wins this home will have a great retreat to spend their days in. Good luck to all!

    • I really like the "wet room" idea. They tried something similar with the Smart Home on HGTV. Over there they totally glassed in the entire shower tub area; it was just weird. I like the Blog Cabins version of the wet room. just a small glass wall by the shower to keep the spray from wetting too much but having the area open it is relaxing, practical and not claustrophobic. (plus less glass to keep spotless)

  2. As usual everyone has gone a step further in the design and execution rebuilding and decorating this beautiful property.

  3. The entire house has the most beautiful balance of reclaimed and new. From the old fire place with the hidden tv, to the crafty, yet fun, dining room table. Although dificult to choose just one area, let alone one specific item, I would have to say that the master bed with all of the reclaimed wood, handles, and knockers is one of my favorite pieces in the home. There is so much that is reclaimed on one piece of furniture. Anyone can have sweet dreams in this beautiful little history box. Rustic, reclaimed, fresh, and unique. The home will provide a wonderful sanctuary and retreat for the lucky winner!

  7. My favorite was the reclaimed wood bar area in the kitchen…second runner-up was the shutter headboard in the master bedroom. I love this home…I lived in New Bern during my childhood, and the area still graces my heart. THIS is the home my family dreams of!
