Tour Blog Cabin 2016 and Escape to the Gulf Coast

DIY Network’s Blog Cabin 2016 on the Gulf Coast captures Old Florida style and amazing water views.

It’s finally here! DIY Network’s Blog Cabin 2016 Tour is live, and you can see, in photos and videos, all the amazing spaces in this Florida home — the home you could win.

Be sure to tour every one, but here are a handful of my favorite spaces.

1. EXTERIOR: This waterfront location can’t be beat. Check out the views.

2. KITCHEN: I love the pop of color from copper patina on the island!

3. GUEST BEDROOM: With a marine-blue ceiling and an aquarium, what could be more coastal?

4. SKY CABIN: This private retreat feels just like a treehouse. My favorite.

5. UPPER DECK: Can’t you imagine stargazing from here?

Be sure to tune in on DIY Network to see how it all came together with the experts from the Crashers Series. Here’s the show schedule.

DIY Network Blog Cabin 2015 Winner Announcement

DIY Network Blog Cabin 2015

Congratulations to Albert Zaranka! He and his wife, Ellen, are the proud winners of the DIY Network® Blog Cabin 2015 GiveawayTM, a grand prize package valued at almost $900,000.

DIY Network Blog Cabin 2015 Winner

Al’s name was randomly drawn from more than 23 million entries. “My first reaction to being told that I had won was tears of joy,” he says. “For how many millions of entries you get, it never occurred to me that I’d be the lucky one.”

The DIY Network enthusiast admits to entering online, looking at every room, and watching every video. “I always try to figure out where we’d put the piano in each house,” says Al. At DIY Network Blog Cabin 2015, he envisions the family piano in the downstairs hallway across from the living room and stairway.

Al, a teacher and pianist, loves the two-story open concept. “I particularly like the living room with the balcony effect and the view,” he explains.

“We can’t wait to see the home in-person,” says Al. Still shocked from his stroke of good fortune, Al looks forward to sharing the prize with his wife.
