DIY NETWORK ANNOUNCES COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO AS THE NEW LOCATION FOR ITS INTERACTIVE SERIES AND SWEEPSTAKES BLOG CABIN
NEW YORK [October 28, 2014] DIY Network ventures west to Coeur D’Alene, Idaho for the ninth season of Blog Cabin, the first-ever interactive home-building series based on a very simple idea: “You Design It, We Build It, You Could Win It!” Beginning Tuesday, January 6, visitors to DIYNetwork.com/blogcabin can vote for their favorite construction features that will help host Chris Grundy, and a team of DIY Network experts, with the design of the 2015 mountain retreat. On Monday, July 27, fans can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win the fully renovated and furnished home, as well tune in to the season nine premiere at 9 p.m. ET.
“We’re taking Blog Cabin out west for the very first time,” said Grundy. “It’s a little taste of small town living with walk-up ice cream shops, down home restaurants, and year-round events for the whole family.”
Chris will join forces with other popular DIY Network stars, including the crashers team, to transform the original 1970s hilltop home. In addition, Laurie March, the House Counselor from HGTVRemodels.com, will provide behind-the-scenes videos of the construction and design of Blog Cabin 2015 on DIYNetwork.com/blogcabin. 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.
