As the saying goes, what's not to like? Or, in the same vein, there's so much to love!

Start with the location. Could you ask for more? Martha's Vineyard is an awesome coup. Hats off to Jack and HGTV.

On to the Dream House itself: That soaring Great Room ceiling, exposed timbers and views onto the pond. It will never fail to impress. (I'd expect a gaggle of wild geese to be sighted circling the shoreline close to the Dream Home in hopes of catching a sneak peek inside as work progresses, especially on "load-in" day!

A few more pleasing features to keep visions of the Dream Home dancing in my head: those window shutters and a cupola with weathervane already installed. Can it be Cape Cod cottage style without them?

The paint colors chosen so far -- in one word -- dreamy.

I really appreciate the separation of bedroom spaces with the master suite on one side and the guest rooms on the other. Privacy, peace and quiet for all. And all those French doors that bring in plenty of light and exude a ton of charm.

To think that lucky Linda Woodrum gets to work her magic and furnish this beauty... that would be a dream job come true for any designer. I'd say it's certainly going to be one of the most anticipated blog posts coming up.

Don't keep us in suspense too long, Virginia. We've been good, after all. Well, sort of.

First, a minor "housekeeping" comment: I'm pleased to see that the Dream Home 2015 "Behind the Build" links are now officially posted. Unfortunately, we had to experience a bit of a technical glitch with an "on-again, off-again" premature exposé within the previous blog, but all is now set right with equal and easy access for all.

I hope that relevant future links, regardless of HGTV site, in fairness to all, can be coordinated and posted for viewing to provide each and every blogger with equal-time access.

Now, on to the fun stuff!

There's always this possibility I'd mentioned earlier, minitoni: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Flying+Boat+C...

A quick side note: As we know, the links were on, then off... now they're all back on again, including the one in my original comment above.

Must have been a brief power outage at HGTV! Either that or someone accidentally set their coffee mug down on the off switch....

Thanks, Lindingo. Last night I'd also found a visual of the garage with one car parked inside to show the proportions of the space on the "Before the Build" virtual tour.

In any event, if I were to win the home, one car shared between Terri and me would work just fine!

Just a word to any prospective visitors: BYOC. (Bring Your Own Car.)

I like the color orange on pumpkins.... and a certain kind of citrus that you make juice from -- with lots of vitamin C. Also orange flowers, though most any color will do in the garden.

Will we get any orange flowers in the Dream Home garden? ^_^

LinkLineInk: Will we get any sneak peeks at the "HGTV Dream Home 2015" TV special? http://www.marthasvineyardproductions.com/hgtv.ht...

LinkLineInk: do you have what it takes to do a commercial on Martha's Vineyard for Dream Home 2015? https://www.facebook.com/MarthasVineyardProductio...

Well then, a spacious one-car garage it is. I'd think that, depending on the needs and lifestyle of the eventual owner(s), a carriage house and guest room could be added. Or, simply buy two mini-cars.

What I haven't been able to confirm yet from the floor plan is whether the garage is a one-car or two-car. Without dimensions, it appears to be a one car garage. I wonder if the nature of island living makes this the norm for a house of 3,200 square feet?
