DIY Blog Cabin Sweepstakes Update - The Blog Cabin Won't Be Awarded!

By September 30, 2009

Follow me on:

If you've been entering the DIY Blog Cabin Sweepstakes hoping to walk away with that gorgeous mountain getaway home, I have some disappointing news - DIY announced that they wouldn't be giving away the home after all.

According to a blog post on the DIY Network website:

"...Various issues have prevented us from closing on the house and being in a position to award it to a winner. DIY Network no longer has any affiliation with the developer, nor are we involved with the developer's apparent efforts to sell the 2009 Blog Cabin."

Youch, that sounds like some nasty discussions were going on behind the scenes.

But, don't worry, your entry time is not lost! DIY has changed their grand prize to $500,000 cash. That should let you purchase your own dream cabin, or you could put that big cash prize toward whatever other kind of purchase you'd like.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that DIY brings this fantastic sweepstakes back next year, despite the difficulties this year.

Sure did like the cabin but green is my favorite color.
DIY is my favorite network on TV.
Would like to see a cabin on Watts Bar Lake again.
It look’s so peaseful there.
Keep up the good work

Prayers: Billy

I am disappointed that the blog cabin won’t be given away. It sure is a nice place! However, I think $500,000 is a great prize too and I wouldn’t complain a bit if I were to win it!. Good luck to everyone who entered!

I agree with you, Sue. I can’t even decide which prize I’d rather have! This year’s cabin sounded amazing, but I don’t think I’d like to live in a community that caused such problems. And $500,000 would sure be great to spend!
