Out of The Local Logs Came This $700K Duvall Cabin

New, 1 comment

Here's one approach to sustainability: build a log cabin from trees logged on site. Someone did that in 1989 for this 3 bedroom, 1.75 bath rustic home. That may be unconventional in 2015, but that's the way log cabins began. They're asking $699,000 for the 1,774 square foot house and the 5.23 acre property. With that much land there's plenty of room for the 32 x 32 shop, the 10 x 12 garden shed; and of course, the garden. Rustic means you can relax. Rustic means fewer worries about nicks, scratches, and occasional splinters because they'll blend in with the others from 26 years of being lived in. Relaxing may be the greatest luxury. The other luxurious feature for the buyer is a $200,000 price drop from the initial listing. A few months on the market will do that. In the meantime, the trees are growing, the firewood is probably aging nicely, and any buyer gets the opportunity appreciating what it takes to fell a tree, slice it up, split it, haul it, and burn it - or build yet another log cabin. There's more than enough wood, and proof that it can be done.
