    nicely done! is there another heat source other than the wood stove – I see no ceiling fans so what about cooling – was insulation added and where/how old are hwh and plumbing/electrical, hope they were redone when remodel was performed – all info I would want if considering purchasing – also are re any closets in the bedrooms? Don’t laugh! my daughter has a home of this vintage with no closets in the bedrooms!

      Yeah, houses of that vintage, especially lower income housing typically didn’t have built in wardrobes. They did however have those funny things called, if memory serves me correctly, an armoire.

    This would be an illegal remodel in Florida, as building codes require each bedroom to have at least one window (big enough to use for evacuation) and at least one enclosed closet (not a wardrobe). Is a floor plan with dimensions available?

    Nice looking house, but bigger than I would want, even for a landlocked house. I live in a 3 room house that was built before tiny houses were even thought of, in 1951. The front room and kitchen are each 10ft by 10ft and be bedroom is 5ft by 8ft. The bathroom is like a closet off the kitchen and there is a closet in the bedroom. Off the bedroom is the back porch which is enclosed also. Makes a nice broom closet! The house was constructed by the Red Cross to replace a 6 room house that floated away in the 1951 flood.

    This one looks familiar–was it featured on THT a few years ago?

    The Redfin listing says nothing about heating or cooling, but the Zillow listing says the home has forced air heat, but no cooling (maybe not needed in Olympia?).

    Ridiculous price. people want to live tiny and not spend almost $300k doing so.

      Ha ha, you don’t know how lucky you are. In Auckland, New Zealand that’d sell for $1 million PLUS

    I was wondering why they put a regular house there and after I looked at it I didn’t care. It is fabulous 😍. That will not be for sale for long if it still is. It’s really beautiful, thank you for sharing it with us.

    No landscaping, run down neighborhood, and the wood floors need refinished. No way I would pay $300k for it.

      Well I’ve got a 3 b/r home, with a basement area that has a tool room/pantry, office space, spare bedroom/games room plus additional shower and toilet… has seen better days and it’ll sell for $900000+ maybe even a million plus.

      Location nothing spectacular.

      What caused that? Several things, deregulation (plus lack of ethics) of real estate industry early 90’s, the belief that ppl could make a fortune from real estate, ppl believing that they couldn’t lose on real estate and expats flying home because of covid and they can afford to pay stoopid money, and what do they care… there’s plenty more where that came from.

      Yeah, the world’s gone mad, mad, mad.
