Boise, Idaho Woman Wins $2.1M HGTV Dream Home Package

Laura Martin of Boise, Idaho entered nearly every day for two months to get the custom Lake Tahoe house.

Laura Martin looked up during a staff meeting Tuesday morning at Foerstel Design to see her husband Scott coming through the front door. He was followed by a video crew, leading Martin to think he was playing some kind of prank on her.

Then she spotted cable television host John Gidding walking toward her, holding a microphone with an HGTV logo.

“That’s when I lost it,” she said later.

As Martin and her co-workers screamed, Gidding told her she was the winner of the HGTV Dream Home 2014 Giveaway: a 3,200-square-foot home minutes away from Lake Tahoe, $250,000 cash from Quicken Loans and a 2015 GMC Yukon Denali.

The home is valued at $1.8 million, while the SUV is worth $77,000.

“Oh my God. Oh my God. This is so crazy,” Martin said, hugging Gidding. “Out of all of those millions of people I won?”

“Seventy-seven million,” Gidding said, while Martin’s co-workers clapped.
