Also up for grabs is a green show home in Tradition Hilton Head, a 5,300-acre, 9,500-home development in Hardeeville, S.C., HGTV will give the house away after it is featured on the Green Home 2008 special, Sunday, March 23.
Competition to win the $850,000, 2,000-square-foot, fully furnished home is expected to be fierce. The last Dream Home contest attracted more than 41 million entries, according to Emily Yarborough, spokesperson for HGTV.
The house will follow LEED standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the leading national benchmark for green building. Core Communities, the Florida-based company developing Tradition Hilton Head, will include a development-wide irrigation system to use only treated wastewater, a feature that helped the company secure the chance to build the house for HGTV.
