HGTV 2010 Green Home Giveaway commences April 16

A Cape Cod cottage-style charmer awaits the winner of this year’s HGTV Green Home Giveaway 2010. The eco-friendly home will be up for grabs starting Friday, April 16 at 9 a.m. ET.

Located in the Pinehills community of Plymouth, Massachusetts, the 2,100 square foot HGTV Green Home features construction and design elements that are known to contribute to an energy-efficient, cleaner and healthier living environment. The home recently received a GOLD Certification from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The NAHB National Green Building Standard is the first and only American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved green building standard.

"This is our first HGTV Green Home in a New England location, which gives us the chance to demonstrate the best building products and practices uniquely suited for the charm and challenges of a northeast climate," said Jack Thomasson, HGTV House Planner. "As an added bonus, the fantastic amenities of The Pinehills community offer a lifestyle suited for the outdoor and eco-enthusiast. The house and community make this our best HGTV Green Home yet."

The two story, two bedroom, 2 ½ bath Green Home is just one part of the grand prize package which also includes a 2010 GMC Terrain and $100,000. The prize is valued at almost $800,000.

Hopeful Green Home entrants may enter the contest once per day on HGTV.com or as many times as they wish by mail. The contest closes on Friday, June 4 at 5 p.m.

For a closer look at the 2010 HGTV Green Home, viewers can tune into HGTV on April 18 when host Jamie Durie of The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie will highlight the home’s features. A photo gallery and a 360-degree virtual tour of the third annual HGTV Green Home is available at HGTV.com/greenhome.
