Shelton Family Wins HGTV Dream Home



    The Rennie family, of Shelton, won the HGTV Dream Home.

    The chances of winning the HGTV dream home are one in 127 million, but that was enough for a Shelton family.

    HGTV recently surprised David Rennie and his wife Margaret at their church and revealed they won the house in Merrit Island, Florida, along with $250,000, a boat and a 2016 GMC Acadia Denali.

    David Rennie, a father of two, was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease and told HGTV he thought he won the lottery when he received a new kidney, according to HGTV.

    “I thought I won the lottery with the kidney. That was life changing, but so is this. We just never thought it could get any better,” he said, according to the HGTV Web site.

    After watching the show and seeing it built, the family is now looking forward to seeing it in person.
