As Ecorazzi reported earlier, HGTV is teaming up with a slew of bubbly corporations to build a totally “green” home for one lucky viewer to win! The location and specifics of this eco-palace had been kept super secret…until now. Just this week, HGTV announced that your new green home (I’m being optimistic here) will be located in lovely….drum roll, please…Traditional Hilton Head, South Carolina!!!
(Cue Price Is Right music)
Traditional Hilton Head is a 5,300-acre planned community that sits snuggled between Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head Island, and from the pictures looks like the most beautiful place ever! The house itself is a 2,000-square-foot, 3-bedroom/2.5-bath home and will be pimped out with a graywater system, tankless water heaters, low-E glazing, sprayed-in foam insulation, fiber cement siding, SIPs, and ICFs. On top of all of that really neato stuff, this house will be registered with USGBC and will pursue a LEED certification.
Just how can YOU own this green beauty? All you have to do is visit the HGTV website From March 21 through May 9, 2008 and enter to win this prize package worth over $850,000.
Go watch homebuilder, Jack Thomasson, talk more about the specifics of this project and what makes it so darn great! And if you do win, please don’t forget to invite your extremely attractive, yet adorably humble, Ecorazzi team over for dinner so we may also bask in your luxurious greenness. FYI-I make a mean Barbecue Tofu!
