The St. Jude Dreamhome Giveway in Lexington is officially in the books. The project raised $700,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, by selling 7,000 raffle tickets at $100/apiece… with the money all going straight to cancer research, and the keys going straight to the new owner. Drew and Erin Brester with DB Homes did an amazing job on this house valued at about $450,000… and managed to build this beautiful home for FREE. The subcontractors, vendors, sponsors, and volunteers each had very important roles in making this thing happen, and I’m sure the people at St. Jude are extremely happy to have had such a success in their first Lexington Dreamhome Project. The work put into this awesome house deserves to be applauded, and I was lucky enough to watch and take photos through the whole process. Between following the stages of construction and using this home to practice different techniques for shooting photo and video, I’ve taken thousands of pics in this house. Here’s some of the ones I like the most from just before the giveaway, a showcase of the beautiful work by DB Homes and everyone that helped contribute.
