|BLOG CABIN 2014|
Bradley Powell, 30, of Winter Haven, Fla., was in complete disbelief when he received news of winning DIY Network’s BlogCabin 2014, a fully renovated 1920s bungalow stationed on five acres of land that is a short drive from his current home. The furnished approximately 2,500 sq. ft. home is the centerpiece of the grand prize package valued at almost $900,000, which also includes a 2015 MasterCraft NXT20 Wake/Surf Boat and $50,000 provided by national mortgage lender Quicken Loans. Brad, who says he entered the giveaway twice per day as soon as he heard the sweepstakes started, was randomly selected from more than 24 million entries.
“My wife and I were watching the local news and saw that this year’s Blog Cabin would be located in Winter Haven, Fla.,” said Brad. “We decided to start entering every morning after that—but never dreamed of winning the grand prize! It still hasn’t fully sunk in yet.”
