BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- You've been buying tickets for the St. Jude Dream Home, and now you're just days away from stepping inside.

WBKO got a sneak peek of it Tuesday afternoon before the public open house this weekend.

The final touches are being added, but it is close to completion.

This year's dream home builder has built many of the others, and he's excited to show off this one's special features.

"I really like the outside this year. We've got a nice wrap-around porch which looks really nice -- some nice railing. The outside has great curb appeal. Inside, we've got so many neat features, too. We've got the nice hardwood floors, granite countertops -- everything is completely decked out by Ashley Furniture. It looks like a home that somebody's already living in," said Darrel Sweets, the owner of Sweets Design Build, Inc.

You can tour the home on Ivan Downs Boulevard starting this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5:00 p.m. through September 7th.

There are still tickets left, which you can buy while visiting the home, Houchens Market locations in Bowling Green and Glasgow, Crossroads IGA locations in Bowling Green, Ashley Furniture HomeStore, Leachman, www.dreamhome.org, or by calling 1-800-834-5461.
