Belgard would like to congratulate Ms. Myra Lewis of New Orleans, Louisiana! Yesterday, HGTV announced Ms. Lewis as the winner of the 2010 Dream Home. In addition to winning the custom-designed 3,900 square-foot home, she will also receive a cash prize of $500,000, a 2010 GMC Terrian and several other housewarming gifts for a grand-prize package valued at more than $2 million. Ms. Lewis stated that she has entered the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway for years. This year she and her sister reminded each other to enter the contest every single day. According to HGTV, Myra loves this year’s Dream Home and is already making plans to host many visitors.
The HGTV 2010 Dream Home is located in Sandia Park, New Mexico. When building the house, the goal was to combine southwestern architecture with modern design. In addition to a spacious, lavishly designed interior, this year’s home features a number of stunning outdoor spaces beautifully accented with Belgard pavers. Among the outdoor spaces featured in this year’s home are a motor court area (which doubles as a private outdoor dining room), a large grilling area accompanied by an outdoor entertaining area and a private patio with an outdoor fireplace. All of these areas will allow Ms. Lewis to entertain her guest outdoors while enjoying the breathtaking views of the San Pedro Mountains.
This year’s house features Belgard’s Mega Lafitt and BelAir WallTM pavers. These pavers were used for the driveway, walkways, patios and even the fire pit and grill surrounds. Mega Lafitt features the most natural-looking texture available in a modern paver – the perfect complement to the Dream Home’s natural scenery. Its larger proportions and modular shapes allow for ample design flexibility. BelAir Wall offers designers, contractors and homeowners the ideal solution for residential and light commercial retaining and free-standing wall construction where pleasing aesthetics are a key consideration. Belgard pavers have a long history of successful applications on thousands of residential and commercial projects.
We wish Ms. Lewis many happy memories in her new HGTV Dream Home!
