An Oudtshoorn Distraction

Oudtshoorn header

It should only be a week or two before we hear from the Swartland Municipality and (hopefully) receive our signed plans. In order to distract ourselves from the impatience of having to wait before we can begin building work on the container house project, we decided to take a week off work and go away on a short holiday. 

Kevin and I usually take a week off in winter and go away for a bit so the timing worked out quite well. One of our favourite places to go away for a break is Oudtshoorn.

Wine Giveaway! Badsberg Pinotage 2016

badsberg pinotage giveaway

Giveaway closed.

Why is a blog about the building of a house using alternate materials running a wine giveaway?

It is quite simple. Since we took possession of the property and began working on the project, we have had no time to celebrate this fine turn of events. We are now property owners and that’s huge! A great way to celebrate is by enjoying a good meal accompanied by a great bottle of wine, along with some close family and/or friends. We are therefore looking for someone who wants to celebrate with us and have set aside a gift for one of our readers; an awesome bottle of wine from one of our favourite Western Cape wine farms – Badsberg! Hence, the wine giveaway.
