Our 'Showhouse Showdown' Journey

Cobblestone Homes was chosen to build two houses for the new HGTV series "Showhouse Showdown" during a nationwide search in summer 2011.

 

Our episode, filmed at the two Larkin Township homes in August 2011, drew a record-breaking crowd of about 700 people from throughout mid-Michigan. The episode will air at 2:30 p.m. March 24.

"Showhouse Showdown" pits two professional interior designers against each other at nearly identical homes. The designers were given identical budgets and the chance to create a winning interior.

 

Mid-Michigan residents chose the winning "Showhouse Showdown" designer by voting which home they liked best during an open house Aug. 20.

 

The HGTV show is hosted by Michigan native Bob Guiney, who rose to fame when he starred on ABC's "The Bachelor" and later as the host of TLC's "Date My House" and the Game Show Network's "GSN Live" and "Bingo Blitz."

 

Cobblestone co-owner Mark Wahl showed Guiney around while he was in town — even taking him to the Midland County Fair, where they bought a pig.

We're Going to be on HGTV's "Showhouse Showdown"

Great Lakes Bay Region residents will have the chance to be part of the new HGTV show "Showhouse Showdown" — and get a chance to win a design consultation with one of the show's competing designers. The popular home and garden television channel is currently filming an episode of the show in mid-Michigan.

HGTV-OpenHouse

"Showhouse Showdown" is pitting two premier professional interior designers against each other at homes built by Cobblestone in Midland. The designers are given identical budgets and the chance to create a winning interior design for the two newly built homes.

"We are so excited to have been selected for 'Showhouse Showdown,'" our Melissa Wahl said, noting that we were chosen for the show during a nationwide search. "So often, we're known as the energy-efficient builder, and we're proud of that. But I think this recognizes that we also build beautiful homes. It's quite an honor."

At the end of the design competition, local residents will play a very important role in the outcome of the show. At an open house and reception 1-4 p.m. Aug. 20, the first 100 people at the houses, 3339 E. Shady Ridge Drive and 3479 E. Shady Ridge Drive in Midland, will vote for which home they prefer. Some attendees will be asked to give their opinions on camera.

In addition, we are offering a chance for an area resident to win a free design consultation with one of competing "Showhouse Showdown" designers. Our contest is open to those who "like" our Facebook page by Aug. 31. The winner will be announced via Facebook and on our website.

No registration is required to attend the "Showhouse Showdown" open house and voting. The event is free and open to the public. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. While only the first 100 people will be allowed to vote, all viewers are encouraged to stay for a 3-4 p.m. reception, which will include the announcement of the show's winning designer and refreshments.

"Showhouse Showdown" premieres in September on HGTV. The episode filmed in Midland is expected to air this fall. For more information, contact us.
