  1. I'm in. Entered twice yesterday and twice again this morning. I've never been very lucky at winning anything in a drawing, but can't win if I don't try. Going forward, my entries will be somewhat random.

    I'm already looking forward to the next BC. I enjoy the discussions surrounding the process; it's great to exchange ideas, get other perspectives and make friends.

    Good luck to all; may your dreams come true.

    • I'll have to wait to see episodes until they are loaded to this site; I don't have premium cable channels.

    • Hi Don! Good that you entered–you never know! I'm hopeful for you, after years of dealing with poor job market and all that stuff, I would love to see something special happen for you! Gosh! Come to think of it, There are several Faithful Bloggies who So deserve to win, after enduring hard times! My heart is pulling especially for you!!! i have amassed some ideas for your woodworking to add, no doubt to yours, should you win this year's BC. You will need a workshop, of course, and double that as a place to store all the outdoor stuff, during storms… :) Good Luck, my Friend! xD^_^B)<3 Kitty

    • Chris Grundy is definitely pumped up about the Blog Cabin! I think he and the DIY's team's enthusiasm really shows in the restoration of the BC down to the smallest details. Good luck!

  4. I know, I know…..I've been reading about the BC forever. I haven't kept up with the "sweeps" portion of it. Yesterday, I decided to check when the actual entry date was. Woohoo…Am I ever thankful I did, and got the entries in for the day!

    Wishing everyone the best!

  5. I was studying the Media Room and I Love the ceiling, clad in whitewashed juniper. It reminds me of my childhood bedroom with a high pitch ceiling. As a child, I shared the third floor with three sisters. Four of us slept in what we called the dormitory. I currently live in a ranch house but always wanted a second floor and this fits the bill.
    The entertainment center fits perfectly in the corner of the room and is built from reclaimed wood keeping the rustic look, perfect! This is where I will be hanging out.
    The Murphy Beds are a plus +++ to the room.

  6. This is beautiful – a wonderful oasis.

  7. Love watching all the shows! Got a lot of good ideas through them. Love the new home and where it's located!

  8. I think if anyone is concerned about what will happen if they win, please take heart and just know if you do win, it's meant for you to do so. That's when you get to a reputable attorney and find all the legal details and fees associated with ownerships of this beautiful home.. Anyone stating that you can not do this and that might not have all their facts straight. Keep dreaming!!!! :D <3
