AVON, Ohio -- Even though it's winter, construction continues on the 2013 St. Jude Dream Home.

Excavators pushed in the dirt and stone for the backfill around the foundation for the $400,000 home in Avon's Red Tail golf community.

Once completed, the dream home will be fully furnished by Lay-Z-Boy and raffled off for $100 a ticket.

All proceeds from the Dream Home Giveaway benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The hospital was founded in 1962, and it’s daily operating costs total nearly $2 million.

Progress is being made, crews just need mother nature to cooperate as the weather can create challenges.

Crews will start framing the home next.

We will continue to keep you posted on the progress and let you know when tickets to win the home will be available.
