    Woodstove seems a little awkwardly placed. How do you not torch your tush while doing the dishes?

    Finishes aren’t to my taste, but easy fix. Price isn’t bad if you just consider the land by itself. You could live in this little place while building the home you want, then demolish this or rent it out. Am I seeing a glimpse of the lake in one of those pictures? Is that a view from the house, or just a shot of the neighborhood? Still pretty.

    • Alex November 19, 2015, 12:44 pm

      I believe that yes there is a nearby lake :)

      • Deadrock November 19, 2015, 12:57 pm

        Great, Alex! Then it’s a quick and easy dash to douse the fire on your fanny.

        Lakeside property in Washington state is not cheap. Boosucks to you, naysayers. You don’t have to like the house, but the land seems quite nice, at least in the pix. It could be covered in sinkholes and swamp adders for all we know for sure, but if it’s within a decent driving distance of some amenities, and easy to build on, then this isn’t the price gouge some people seem to think. Lucky for you if you live somewhere where land is free for the pickin’, like it was in pioneer days, or you qualify for 40 free acres and a mule. There’s an awful lot of (let’s face it – desirable) places to live in the U.S. that cost something to enjoy living in. $49,500 is not outside the budget for many people, especially when it DOES have a livable structure already in place on it.

        • Deadrock November 19, 2015, 1:18 pm

          Oh, and take into consideration that all the furnishings are included…

        • CharlotteMo November 19, 2015, 2:50 pm

          Excellent points. We are also not privy to permitting issues and possible associated costs. The separate bathroom is a clue. Unless there is rot beneath all the fresh paint, this is not a bad little place to start with. With the exception of the compost pile and woodstove placement, this is quite livable. I’d be interested to see what a half acre lot sells there on a private lake. I even like the shabby chic decor, cool “old lake house” look. In Florida, good luck matching that price with anything livable on or near water.

  • Jane November 18, 2015, 9:23 pm

    I can buy a regular house in many parts of the country for less than 50k, and can buy a far more spacious mobile home for far less. People are really losing sight of the reason for tiny houses, in my opinion.

    • Elaine November 18, 2015, 9:50 pm

      There are several reasons that people want a tiny house and a lower price is only one of them. It is MY reason, but not everyone’s. You can’t buy a house for less than 50K where I live unless it’s dilapidated. If this property was near where I need to live, I would consider it. Though, the stove does look awfully close to the sink…

    • Marcy November 19, 2015, 7:49 am

      I live in Denver, and you can’t get a dog house here for that price. For a small fixer-upper, you’re looking at at least $100,000 more than that. And that does not include 63 acres and a lake.

      • Marcy November 19, 2015, 7:58 am

        Oops. Just saw that is .63 acres. Still could not get near that price in this area.

        • Jane November 19, 2015, 11:14 am

          Hi there – where I live I also cannot buy a house for that price, nor can I place a tiny house on a piece of property connected to any humanity, bc of zoning. That’s why I said in many parts of the country.

    • Alex November 19, 2015, 12:46 pm

      Considering many brand new tiny houses on trailers (and brand new travel trailers) are about in this price range, I think it’s reasonable.

    • Charlotte Morrissey November 19, 2015, 2:38 pm

      I have owned homes and rentals from California to Florida, and you can’t get a dump in the Ozarks for $50,000. anymore. A bottom-line new singlewide “fully furnished” is $39,900. in north Florida by the time negotiations are over, without land (or septic and power). A pretty piece of property like this with nearby waterfront would run $75,000 without improvements. Don’t know what planet you’re shopping on.

  • Sandra Lundgren November 18, 2015, 9:25 pm

    I’m thrilled to have come across your website on Pinterest. As soon as I can find property I want to purchase one of your kits. I really love them.

  • SaturdaySportsman November 18, 2015, 10:40 pm

    Oh, I wish it was time for me to retire. I could come up with $50k but I am too far from there and not yet old enough to retire. Sadness.

  • Kristina H Nadreau November 19, 2015, 8:40 am

    No. The dwelling has little value for most people. The land is not worth $100,000 an acre. Even though the house is using low quality material and poor design, it would have some value with a rain water cachment system, a solar or generator power and a BATHROOM! This property has been on the market for over 260 days, which includes the most recent summer season which should be a sign of the market for this.

    • Alex November 19, 2015, 1:03 pm

      Since it’s been on the market so long the price is likely negotiable. Anyone who’s interested can consider putting in a lower offer.

    • CharlotteMo November 19, 2015, 2:33 pm

      Speak for yourself, please, don’t make assumptions about “most people.” I think it’s adorable. Reminds me of summer lake cabins in NC. Poor quality and design? (Sigh).
      I love it. Very pretty site. Unreal how many people are commenting on the price without a clue about the area, zoning or permitting.

      • Deadrock November 19, 2015, 2:41 pm

        Actually, it just appears to be Kristina that has an issue with the price. Everyone else is remarking that they couldn’t touch that price where they live. Ms. Nadreau must live someplace very, very inexpensive…and based on her criteria for price equaling desirability on the market, I’m wondering how many other people would want to live where she does?

        • kristinà nadreau November 22, 2015, 5:31 am

          I am wondering about the leap of logic that has taken my comment about the market for this property to assumptions about my home.

          People who are buying property, are not buying this house. That is the fact. The Sale price of real estatete does reflect the value of the land (location) and the improvements. Another basic fact.
          Desireability does dictate, market value, without exception. Another pesky fact.

          FYI. I Live in a desireable area in a desireable house, which is entirely unrelated to my comments.

      • Deadrock November 19, 2015, 3:05 pm

        Whoopsie, my bad. Jane also didn’t like the price. So that makes 5 who think it’s a reasonable price, 2 who don’t. Counting Alex (and Alex ALWAYS counts, naturally), that makes 6 who vote thumbs up on the price. And as our kindly moderator wisely pointed out, it’s always negotiable! I think we have a quorum.

        Remember, everyone, that this location makes a day trip to the San Juan Islands within reach. Also Seattle. You know how much a half acre lakeside in Seattle would cost? And the ocean and Vancouver Canada are close destinations too. Kayakin with the orcas is a weekend adventure away. Where else do you get all that and this view out your window for less than $50,000?

        • Alex November 20, 2015, 5:35 am

          Haha, so it’s settled! :D It seems like a reasonable deal, although anyone who might be seriously interested in it should still do their due diligence before committing and/or committing with the help of someone experienced with real estate contract laws so you can get out of your contract if there are any unforeseen issues.

        • Sandi B November 20, 2015, 2:22 pm

          This property is not a “day” trip to the San Juans and it is a good two and a half three hours to Seattle, even if you drive up and take the ferry out of Bremerton. This is in Mason County, West of Olympia, fairly southwest of Seattle — again, I have to say there is a reason this great little piece of property with a “livable house” on it — I highly question whether full time living is allowed in this community do to the lack of needed services such as sewers etc. and I do not think Septic is allowed here. Anyone interested in this had better being asking the right questions is all I have to say or that “cheap” price will seem like a lot of wasted money when the property can not be used for what you want.

        • Deadrock November 20, 2015, 2:33 pm

          I see that it’s about 185 miles from Tahuya to Friday Harbor. Do-able in a day (I’ve driven longer round trips in one day), but best made into a weekend trip. I didn’t mean to imply that Seattle was the nearest shopping destination, just that it was within reach when the urge to go urban hits.

          I believe I’ve already responded to your other remarks about this property.

          However, if you wish me to stand corrected, that’s fine. Consider me so.

  • Sandi B November 20, 2015, 1:30 pm

    I lived in Washington and we had vacation property near here — the lake I believe is a small man made lake — the area is a high crime area and there is always a reason why a property is on the market for so long — the separate bathroom is not adequate for full time living and perhaps full time living is not allowed in this area. I have been in Mason county for awhile — but I do not think it is that close to shopping etc. Also to visit the bathroom in the winter is a very cold, very wet short little hike to a very cold and damp “bathroom” that was probably an outhouse to begin with. I doubt there is sewer hookups of any kind or a septic tank — both drawbacks to full time living — and it is further from the lake then indicated. This is basically a converted shed and if you look closely there is wood rot at least with the so called bathroom.

    Further there is no stove, no closets or storage space — I use to sell campground memberships here. I can not imagine in the dead of winter having to get up in the middle of the night, grab a flashlight and stumble in the cold and rain (also think snow) out to use what is a homemade composting toilet — I can only imagine. Trust that if this property were viable year round living it would have sold long ago. I think I am going to have my cousin check it out – he lives nearby — I am just curious as to the truth of this property. Also, you have to maintain that road yourself. You are looking at big bucks to upgrade this property if it is even allowed. It is interesting to see what people will put up with — great for weekend getaways in the summer, but would pretty much have to lock it up for the winter.

    • Deadrock November 20, 2015, 1:58 pm

      I suspect that what what you say is true. The listing does say the house is located “a block from the dock” which led me to believe that the picture of the lake was more “somewhere in the neighborhood” rather than the real view out of one of the windows…although based just on these pictures, the lot does look like it’s pretty and would be much nicer to contemplate than your neighbor’s garage wall, for instance.

      There have been several posts here showing vacation properties for sale in Tahuya, Shelton and surrounding small towns, and the fact that so many homes there are currently on the market should be a red flag in itself. I did some research on Shelton a few months ago, and commented on the sad news (via the many negative comments on City-Data.com) that it was not a particularly desirable community for, among other things, the high crime rate. Some locals responded to my remarks with a little umbrage, refuting the notion and asserting that the little lakeside community where the property in question was located was a safe and family oriented place.

      I do think the listing at least makes it fairly clear that this is intended as a weekend getaway, not a year-round option as-is. Whether it could be made into one with an investment of time and/or money depends on whether the proximity to shopping, medical services, etc. makes it worthwhile. The distance to all the amenities I mentioned previously still makes this an attractive option, but day-to-day living would require a higher standard, and schools, crime rate, seasonal challenges, and even knowing that a fire engine could get to you before your home is nothing but a smoking hole in the ground all factor in to whether the price is reasonable or not.

      Even if you’re a rugged individualist who wants nothing more than to live quietly and off the grid somewhere remote, this probably isn’t a great option, as it was most likely intended to be part of a group of similar cabins built to take advantage of the stocked, man-made lake for recreational purposes (shooting fish in a barrel, which isn’t much of a game for the fish, but I digress).

      So it all boils down to what Alex said: “…anyone who might be seriously interested in it should still do their due diligence before committing and/or committing with the help of someone experienced with real estate contract laws so you can get out of your contract if there are any unforeseen issues.”

    Wow! I had to comment… Collins Lake is only 9 miles to Belfair, which has all you need and then some. CL is in the Tahuya state forest- 23 thousand acres of trails, lakes, campgrounds and more. Staffed fire station at the CL entrance, cute summer homes and full time places. This place can have a septic but some vacation homes didn’t see the need for the added cost. Lots of kids on the school bus. It only takes 30-35 minutes to get to Bremerton- jumping on a ferry to Seattle is easy, driving around only takes an hour and a half without traffic. Mason county is one of the easiest counties to work with, and yes, it’s been hard hit with mill closures etc, and some areas are struggling. Any direction you drive is beautiful with views of the Olympics, Mt. Rainier and water everywhere. There is a state park ten minutes away- clams, oysters and salt water fish. Tahuya area is Doug fir, cedar, hemlock, jack pine, huckleberries, salal, and rhododendrons. Many city folks are selling their summer homes and cabins, and lucky people like me are turning small cabins into really cool full time homes.

    I’ve been surprised at how many folks criticize or make petty observations about the ones that are doing it- living tiny, small, or however it works. I felt compelled to respond because this area has a lot to offer.

    • Marcy November 22, 2015, 8:30 am

      Thanks for your input. I always thought that someone was getting a deal at that price. It is now confirmed. My brother lives in Seattle and I sent him this link in case he has extra funds and is looking for a weekend get away.

  • Varenikje November 24, 2015, 1:20 am

    A jillion years ago, I lived just outside of Olympia. Pretty area, but it seemed at the time (was it 30 some years ago?) to be somewhat economically depressed. Great if you are retired or able to make a living some other way. Sounds like “due diligence” is a good idea, one way or tuther.

  • Jim December 7, 2015, 12:26 pm

    As a former realtor, I know realtors will try and tell you if it does not sell within a month or two (considering other major factors: location, condition, and updates) price is too high. They’re trying to encourage a quick sale as real estate is usually 100% commission. 6 to 8 months is reasonable depending on market conditions such as number of “comparable” homes on the market, number of buyers, and interest rates.
    A buyer determines what your property is worth by what they are willing to pay and one could easily argue that at 260 days they have determined that at this point, fifty thousand is not worth what is being offered. My opinion is “be patient” we are still in an inflated market where people are still trying to get their money back for what they paid. Right now, and very soon, more baby boomers will continue to retire and most likely sell off their second and vacation properties. What will happen when they start flooding the market with not as many buyers, you guess it, the market will finally re-adjust to more reasonable price tags. People are entitled to their opinions about current prices but only one thing can happen when demand does not equal supply.
