A Hughson woman's dream came true Monday, when she and her husband, were treated to an in-home consulta­tion with HGTV (Home and Gar­den Television) celebrity home designers Jonathan and Drew Scott (aka The Property Brothers). It was a prize valued at $5,000.

According to Danessa Menge, she entered a sweep­stakes earlier in the year via social media.

“I’m a huge fan,” she said of the HGTV chan­nel, as well as the duo. “I subscribe to their e-mails and follow them online.”

When the DIY, Do- It-Yourself, enthusiast learned of her good for­tune via e-mail earlier this summer, she was un­certain of its validity.

“I immediately for­warded it to my husband and asked, is this for real?” the Oakdale teacher said, chuckling at the notion.

Not only was it ‘for real,’ but it was happening. The couple was instruct­ed to keep the winning confidential until proper protocol was complet­ed. Within a handful of weeks, the announce­ment was made via the same page she had en­tered on.

 Menge was given an itinerary as to how the day would run, as well as requested to have a list of three areas they would like advice or help with in the home.

“It was a whirlwind,” Menge said of her Mon­day morning fun with the HGTV crew and celebrity guests. “They were great. What you see on TV is ex­actly what you get.”

The Menges toured the Property Brothers around their home, starting with the downstairs they had recently remodeled and concluded in an upstairs bedroom they are anx­ious to update.

“They even braved our backyard,” Menge stated of the ‘non-listed’ home location.

“Overall it was very in­formal, but really infor­mative and a lot of fun,” said the fan.

As a result of the meet­ing, the Menges also ap­peared with the broth­ers and Mark S. Allen on "Good Day Sacramento". An e-mail outlining the design recommendations for the couple’s home will follow from the Property Brothers at a later date.
