Blog Cabin 2015 construction is ramping up and we’ve got a lot of ground to cover before the big reveal. To help us get acquainted with this year’s project, I’ve asked build and design manager Dylan Eastman to share his weekly reports about this amazing renovation. Starting next Thursday Dylan will be posting images and writing about the progress of our beloved Blog Cabin 2015 in Coeur d’Alene. Please give him a warm welcome as he becomes our eyes and ears on the ground!
Round four of our People’s Choice vote has begun! We’ve gathered a bevy of interior products and materials for you to choose, from water features under the stairway to pet-friendly design, entertainment room seating to a vintage soda shoppe or snack bar.

Ready, set, action! We’ve got the Blog Cabin 2015 Cabin Cam live. We’re taking you directly to the home site for an up-close-and-personal look at the renovation of this modern mountain retreat in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
Remember, since this is a construction site there are times periodically where the power on the property has to be shut down. During those times the camera will go into Panorama mode, and then return once power is restored.
Get excited because we’re headed to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for the ninth season of Blog Cabin!
“We’re taking Blog Cabin out west for the very first time,” says Chris Grundy. “It’s a little taste of small town living with walk-up ice cream shops, down home restaurants, and year-round events.”
Nestled among the Rocky Mountains, the original cabin will be rebuilt from the ground up and redesigned to honor the spectacular views of neighboring Lake Coeur d’Alene. Dilapidated and abandoned, this rustic structure will be renovated with the help from you, our DIYNetwork.com audience, beginning Tuesday, January 6th.
I don’t want to spill the beans just yet on the location of Blog Cabin 2015, but today I present your second clue. Our location is the nation’s leader in producing a variety of seed found in this image. Can you guess which one?
On Monday I asked you to cast your vote, and it looks like most of you are pulling for the Southeast. Are you imaging a breezy coastal location or a mountainous retreat? Either way, I can get on board with a relaxing escape tucked away off the beaten path.
Today, I present your first clue, courtesy of our build and design manager Dylan Eastman. What or where do you think it is? Take a close look and let’s discuss!
