    Yeah, I’m thinking an out-house with daylight between the siding boards next to pictures of snow covered everything is a deal breaker for a lot of people. Putting a C-Head toilet in a 30″ by 48″ closet inside the house would increase the appeal and chances of selling this house 1000%.

    Yeah, you have to be pretty brave & wild to use an outhouse in the snowy winter.

    Nice house other than that, although I wish more houses would include enough interior pictures you could get a feel for the whole thing. This is missing a few from the bedroom.

    $230,000 for a his & her out house? in 2 ft of snow?
    Wonder why they think this works?
    The design does not seem as clever or as well thought out to make it attractive to me.

    Not my cup of tea, way over priced, and the area alone is a negative with all that snow.. cold and gray skies, Now had it been some desert back drop with Saguaro Cactus. With clear blue skies and sunshine..

    DOES ANYONE have any idea how cold that toilet seat would be???? It would take me HOURS to get back to sleep if I had to use the potty in the middle of the night. Matter of fact, the shock might kill me! lol I GUESS I could “hover”….but how about a chamber pot in the house at night????? Seems more reasonable.

      Depends, if it’s composting then it’s generating heat… Blocking the wind can also help a lot to make it more tolerable as still air acts almost like an insulator and you’d have a pocket of your body heat surrounding you and slowing the rate you cool down.

      Mind, the cabin isn’t insulated and what’s in there has to stay in good condition even when you’re not there…

      While running the wood stove and wood cookstove should make the interior very warm and that usually gives you a few minutes when you exit the house and go to the outhouse before you really have to worry about the cold…

      Winter living in the countryside also generally means you will always have layers of clothing on, even when sleeping…

      Just needs a Styrofoam seat. Easy enough to have a portable toilet inside too. I used an outhouse in the Yukon for years, not that big a deal when you’re younger but once you reach the stage where you need to pee more than once in the night it’s not so great.

    Yes, Spirit Lake gets a lot of snow. But the summers are unbeatable. And this is 20 acres in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Less than an hour from Spokane, Coeur d’ Alene, Sandpoint, and several huge mountain lakes. North Idaho is one of the few places in the interior west that has an ample water supply.

    The land is absolutely gorgeous, I wish I had the opportunity to live somewhere like that! I think the value of the land and the house is worth the asking price. However, there is a definite need for a Bathroom/shower. It looks like there would be room for a bathroom in the Bedroom. If there were a well on the property, you could have water for the kitchen and the bathroom. Without this very essential amenity, you would probably have to come down on the asking price to make it affordable enough for the buyer to make the necessary improvements.

    • Avatar James D. January 9, 2018, 3:32 pm

      I’m pretty sure the price has a lot more to do with the 20 acres (871,200 Square Feet) of land than it does with the Cabin…

      Compared to most houses, a typical lot is around 6,000 to 8,000 sq ft. and 1 acre is 43,560 Sq Ft… So you could fit about 5 to 6 regular lots/houses into a single acre and this property has 20 acres…

      So there’s unlikely to be much leverage on the asking price based solely on what the cabin may lack…

    $230,000 for a box to live in with an outhouse in Idaho! Good luck finding a buyer for that. Absolutely nothing appealing about it.
