The great part of this sweepstakes is your ability to enter twice a day every day for the next 43 days to improve your chances to win the HGTV Green Home 2011, a custom-built, fully furnished, eco-fabulous home situated in Stapleton, Denver's well known premier sustainable community. The grand-prize package, which is worth almost $700,000 includes local artwork, beautiful furnishings, engineered hardwood flooring and a new 2011 GMC Terrain and $100,000.
The HGTV Green home uses the best available technological advances to ensure a well built eco friendly home that will stand the test of time. High-performance framing techniques minimize the amount of wood in the wall, which not only decreases the amount of lumber required but also allows for more insulation in the wall.
Exterior walls are covered in DuPont™ Stucco Wrap, which increases the durability of the home by preventing wind damage and water penetration. Walls are insulated with a blown-cellulose product derived from 85 percent recycled paper products.
HGTV Green Home 2011 will earn LEED certification points for its use of locally sourced building materials, including asphalt roof shingles. Use of brick, manufactured within 30 miles of the home, reduces carbon emissions that would result from transporation of the product to the construction site.
