HGTV Dream Home: We Have a Winner!0

We all like to think about our dream home – and Myra Lewis can stop now.

Myra, 63, was recently crowned the winner of HGTV’s 2010 Dream Home. She has the type of life story that makes for a 2-hour episode of Extreme Makeover. How’d they miss her? It doesn’t matter because now she’s got something better than one of those 7-day quickie builds.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed the home that Myra shared with her now-25-year-old son, Chris.  They bounced around before renovating the ravaged home, which now serves as a rental property. Chris is autistic and pursuing a degree in fine arts.

Myra’s new address and brand new Pueblo-style home is located near Santa Fe, New Mexico. We were ogling over the beauty that’s inside and out just a few weeks back.

 And Myra doesn’t just get the house – it’s actually part of a $2 million prize package, which includes a 2010 GMC Terrain and $500,000. Other housewarming gifts include a 5-day wireless forecaster, a Cuisinart food processor, a countertop popcorn machine, a few Bobby Flay-branded goods, a baking set, and much more.

“I’m blown away,” said the emotional winner. “I’m blown away. This is just unbelievable!”

She isn’t kidding, either. Myra’s name was picked from more than 40 million entries.

And there’s still another chance!  The HGTV Green Home is under construction in Plymouth, MA, and the sweepstakes begins in April.
