"Dream Home Sweepstakes" by Adair Homes

The smell of freshly laid bark and the sight of sprouting daffodils seem out of place inside neon-decked walls of the Tacoma Dome. But it’s a welcome sort of out-of-place – a reminder that spring isn’t that far off.

Rocks, plants, grass and bark surround a simple 997-square-foot house that Adair Homes will give away. It looks move-in ready from the outside, though it’s hollow on the inside and lacks a finished roof. Construction will continue through the weekend on the home in the northeast corner of the Dome.

“This house is great as a starter home, a vacation home or for people looking to downsize,” said Matt Wetzel, Adair’s director of operations.
