NEW YORK , Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mari Cabrera-Hickerson of Culver City, Calif. is the lucky winner of DIY Network's Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway. An avid fan, Cabrera-Hickerson, a former UCLA Medical Center administrative specialist, was randomly drawn from a record-breaking 18.6 million entries to win the grand-prize package valued at almost $500,000. The cabin, located on three acres of gorgeous waterfront property in Atlantic, N.C., was designed interactively by visitors to DIYNetwork.com/blogcabin who voted on all aspects of the renovation, from flooring and bathtubs to window treatments.

"I am just so thankful," remarked Cabrera-Hickerson when asked about winning this year's cabin. "My family and I love the water and I can't wait to experience this beautiful home with them."

Cabrera-Hickerson, who entered the giveaway every day during the 12 week entry period, shares more of her thoughts about winning the home on DIYNetwork.com's Blog Cabin blog.
