Giveaway Closed.

In July I came to the conclusion that a diary would be a huge help in keeping this blog in order. July really isn’t the time of year to be looking for a diary but unbelievably I found something. With that in mind, I would like to introduce you to the Multiplanner from The Papery. The Papery have also sponsored us something special to run as a giveaway, so read on to find out the juicy details.

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.
