It’s been an exciting ride, yes? Thank you so much for entering the Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway. The grand-prize package, worth almost $500,000, includes a beautifully restored cottage located along North Carolina’s stunning Crystal Coast.

Very soon, we will randomly select the winner of the giveaway. The big announcement (the winner’s name and photo and how many times he or she entered the sweepstakes) will be posted on or around October 11, 2013. Then, just a few days later, we plan to unveil the location of our 2014 home. Stay glued to your computer — lots of details are TK in the coming weeks!

Good luck to each and every person who entered.

    • You may want to research historic Beaufort, NC. Beautiful old homes, shops and restaurants along the waterfront. Very picturesque.

  3. It would be so nice to have a house that everything is beautiful, everything works and nothing needs to be fixed. It would be wonderful to be where the view is glorious and plenty of stuff to see and do. Everything sounds wonderful. Good to all!

  4. I do not think I missed a day of entering. I would love to win this cottage, My mother was born in that area and I would love to be back in that area with the family I know. Who ever wins this is not only going to enjoy the home but the people and the area. I hope they do not sell it off but, find the time to enjoy it, the local people
    and take in all the history of the area.

  6. SO much about this home resembles work my husband did for years!!!! So much creativity… and reclaiming the old elements from the old home into the new is genius and exactly the touches my husband added in the homes he used to build. I hope the winner appreciates all the time, thought & efforts put into making this home worthy of humble occupants. Love Every part of it!!!!
