    I really like it! With a few tweaks I could put my own mark on it.

  • Hudson June 4, 2017, 1:59 pm

    With those restrictions it wouldn’t work for me.

    • Eric June 4, 2017, 7:35 pm

      Same. If you don’t own the land, you don’t own it period, and can come a cropper should the owner, or new owners should “that” happen, decide they don’t want you there. Without leasehold price increase restrictions you could end up having to move out, in some, admittedly rare, cases not even being able to move the house off the land.

      • Tom Osterdock June 5, 2017, 3:24 am

        Eric there would not be a new owner. The US Government, Forestry Department of the Interior Department own the land. Prices do not increase for the rent during the lease period. The next 20 years could raise it but it has always been a very reasonable rate.

        • Marc June 5, 2017, 10:37 am

          The Forest Service is an agency within the Departnet of Agriculture. BLM, NPS, FWS, USGS, BIA are within the Department of Interior. This is because the Forest Serivce’s original primary purpose was to grow trees and ensure a reliable source of forest products for the country. When the lease is up they could certainly decide not to renew, but you would have a say in the decision just like every other citizen.

        • Tom Osterdock June 5, 2017, 3:47 pm

          Thanks Marc for the help and clarification.

  • Otessa Regina Compton June 4, 2017, 2:55 pm

    FOR A TINY HOUSE, IT SURE DOES HAVE THE SPACE OF A MANSION. YOU SURE COULD DO SOME BALLROOM DANCING THERE. I WOULD CHANGE OUT SOME OF THE GREEN, BUT IT SURE DOES LOOK ALIVE AND WELL WITH COLOR!

  • Gabriella June 4, 2017, 3:26 pm

    I like the articulated line that offers many possibilities to live especially the outside. I appreciate the good taste in green color, in fact it is not easy to find the tone of green, or red and yellow in the furniture, but here the green in all its expressions is attractive.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee June 5, 2017, 3:41 pm

      Yes it’s true! Green can be a tough color to get “right.”

  • Canyon Man June 4, 2017, 4:10 pm

    I wonder how long the lease has left on it? Many of the forest service leases for cabins expired and they were not renewed. I do not know who would be responsible for removal of the cabin in that case. If lease was long enough I would be gone first it would not matter to me then.

    • Tom Osterdock June 4, 2017, 7:21 pm

      the write up tells you that it is on a 20 year permit that started in 2008 so about 11 more years. It is 1500 per year which is not bad but I wonder how much you can live there since full time living is not permitted.

  • Donna June 5, 2017, 12:31 am

    Why would anyone lease? I don’t understand that at all.

    • Tom Osterdock June 5, 2017, 3:20 am

      Donna, if you want to live in a National Forest like this that is the way the Government does it. They have it as a not for full time living. That means the lease is up 20 years from when it started, then a new lease will be issued. Try renting or buying any land anywhere for 125 a month for 20 years and the price will never increase during the time period of 20 years. You do have to follow the NF rules which is basically for looks and no fires. That does not mean you can’t have a fire pit but on high fire possibliity days there are no fires in pits. You can still have a propane grill just no open flames. If you think about it, it is a really good deal. If I had the money it would be sold now. that is a great looking cabin.

  • Canyon Man June 5, 2017, 10:59 am

    Thank you for the clarification. I missed that somehow.
    I know Pueblo’s in New Mexico are also leasing land for houses around Santa Fe. I think most of them are 99 year leases. I would be concerned the Forest Service might decide to not renew in 11 years. On the other hand it is not overly priced for the area.

  • Liz June 6, 2017, 11:44 am

    I don’t know if you all have snow where you’re at but I sure could see myself watching a beautiful snow storm coming in while I sit by the wood burner and have myself a Busch Light. Awesome home!!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee June 6, 2017, 1:34 pm

      That sounds pretty luxurious 🙂

      • Tom Osterdock June 6, 2017, 1:41 pm

        Natalie, I don’t know about luxurious but I think “Dang Awesome!”
