2017 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway

The winner of the 2017 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway will be announced on February 24. Millions of entries were sent in last year and this year is likely to see millions more. Yet for that one lucky winner, they get to enjoy a spectacular dream home in the vacation destination of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Anyone waiting with fingers crossed may want to look online at the HGTV Smart Home built by Glenn Layton Homes, a premier custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, located not that far from this year’s dream-home location.

That HGTV Smart Home was won in 2013 and was built in the seaside community of Paradise Key South Beach in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The home’s coastal location inspired the designers to create a home that made the most of green living, using the most current developments in home technology. They also included the many energy-saving features that are an important part of all of the HGTV Dream Homes.

One of the biggest changes was that smart technology was used to connect many of the home’s appliances and devices, allowing the homeowners to assess the energy usage and have more control of it, even when they weren’t at home. They were able to control home security, lighting, interior climate and much more. Even in the few short years since the home was built, these kinds of features are becoming more popular and prevalent, with almost every custom home builder in Jacksonville FL and elsewhere being asked about the inclusion of such features. However, with Glenn Layton Homes, you know you’re working with experts in smart home technology.

The home was designed by architect Mike Stauffer, AIA, and built by Glenn Layton Homes. Throughout the project, emphasis was made on designing and building to complement the surrounding coastal environment, as well as using local labor and materials. As long-time builders in Northeast Florida, Glenn Layton Homes understands what makes this part of Florida so appealing and special. Whether building a Smart Home for HGTV or building a home in any of their communities for any home buyer, they strive to create Florida-friendly homes and landscaping that complement the environment.

If you’re not the lucky winner of this year’s HGTV Dream Home, you could still have a dream coastal home of your own by turning to Glenn Layton Homes. Build on your own lot or create a home of your own in one of the outstanding communities in which they regularly build. No matter where you build, you too can include the latest developments in green living and home technology.
