The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) unveiled its 2017 lottery home in May, and it has ticket holders fawning at the chance to call it their own. Each year, British Columbia holds the PNE Prize Home Lottery, and this year features its 83rd annual prize home.
The West-Coast modern-style home is 3,100 sq. ft. and fully furnished with coveted appliances and furniture design from Lane Home Furnishings. It’s valued at over $1.6 million, and will be relocated for the winner to Naramata B.C. with views over-looking the Okanagan Lake. The three bedroom, 2.5 bath, ENERGY STAR certified home was designed by Freeport Industries, and features a floor to ceiling living space, a gorgeous kitchen and even a home theater. Freeport Industries built 6 module units by truck for 5 hours and then assembled the home on site the fairgrounds in Vancouver.
Gentek’s Role in the PNE Lottery Home
Gentek supplied Sagiper and Versetta Stone for the PNE Prize home. Sagiper is maintenance free specialty siding that can be used as exterior soffit or for interior walls and ceiling applications. It’s an ideal material to use as it has a high resistance to UV rays, water absorption, and humidity, and is also impenetrable to insects. Plus, the exterior vinyl colour will never fade! The colour for the Sagiwall and Sagirev used in the PNE Prize Home is Knotty Pine E79.
Versetta Stone is cement-based panelized stone veneer that offers the traditional look of stone masonry without the hassle or maintenance of real stone. It’s also very affordable and is made with colours and textures that precisely replicate natural stone. It can withstand any climate and is designed to manage moisture, so the integrity of your home is never compromised. The Versetta Stone used for the PNE Lottery Home is Ledgestone in Mission Pointe.
