"We really tried to work in this whole four-season concept, modern insulation, energy efficiency, thinking about the environment," Dylan Eastman, the designer of the HGTV Dream Home 2022, told MyNBC5-WPTZ. "I'd say that out of all the houses that I've done for the network, this is one of my top choices."

Some HGTV Dream Home winners decided to cash in their prize.

Maintaining a luxury home comes with many hidden costs, from taxes to utility bills and more. Perhaps, for this reason, previous HGTV Dream Home winners like David Rennie decided to choose the cash option.

"I just don't know if I'm prepared to take that kind of risk and wipe everything out to have to have a second house," David told Florida Today in 2016 after winning the sweepstakes. He ultimately chose to play it safe, opting for cash instead of a luxury home.
