Then tune in to the premiere of DIY Network Blog Cabin Mountain Retreat 2015 giveaway special on September 7 at 9 p.m. ET. Nestled among the Rocky Mountains, the original cabin was rebuilt from the ground up and redesigned to make the most of the spectacular views of neighboring Lake Coeur d'Alene.

"We're headed out west for the very first time," said Chris Grundy, tool expert, do-it-yourselfer and host of Blog Cabin 2015, "to small town living with walk-up ice cream shops, down home restaurants, and plenty of year-round events for the entire family."

This year, Grundy again joined forces with other popular DIY Network stars, including crashers Chris Lambton, Matt Muenster, Josh Temple and Alison Victoria, to transform the original 1970s hilltop home. From a grand central staircase and windows that showcase the amazing view to one-of-a-kind pieces displayed throughout the home, this mountain retreat is destined to quickly become the most popular Blog Cabin yet. The home features a long, single-sloped roof line, exposed laminate beams and concrete walls. Fire elements give the home charm during the winter and a large balcony with sliding doors opens the home to the beautiful northwest summer -- Blog Cabin 2015 is the perfect sanctuary 365 days a year.
