    I must be missing something… no bathroom and no kitchen for $99,000? that seems a little steep.

      Hey Kevin, maybe this will help…

      First, in real estate, you’re also paying for the land and where it’s located. So price includes that this is on 4 acres and is next to a lake with a dock for easy access…

      Second, this is an off-grid cabin… So it’s for those who want to be off-grid and live a more rustic/natural lifestyle… Utilities are provided by propane and on-site generator, which is also included in the price…

      So it’s an off-grid kitchen and bathroom arrangement… Outhouse, wood stove, propane fridge, etc.

      Third, log/timber frame structures cost more to build than stick framed because they are much more labor intensive and tend to use more materials but it’s a look that many like…

      Structures placed near or on bodies of water also tend to cost more because they have to be able to handle the increased weathering that the water causes and that generally means using more expensive materials that will last longer in that kind of environment…

      While water front property tends to be in higher demand and thus supply and demand effects property values to usually be much higher than properties not near bodies of water…

      You’ll also get similar effect with properties near popular tourist destinations, alternative high value nature views like mountains, etc.

      Inversely, the properly value can be much lower if it’s near something undesirable like being near an airport, factory, or basically have no desirable views of the surrounding area…

      Along with population density, and a host of other factors determine what any given property will sell for… Before even going over the things that can be tricky like what you can and can’t do with the land, whether you have rights to any of the natural resources, etc.

    I understand that this is priced more for the location than the cabin itself, but I have worked in Virginia and Eveleth and other “Iron” towns in the area and lets face it, lakes in Minnesota are not all that rare. So, I’d have to put some value in the cabin to justify this place. And, that temporary jack pole holding the loft, and roof, up makes me shudder. And I would need more than just a box with chairs and a bed to pay a hundred grand for it in that area.

      These days, unless you’re building one yourself, the typical cost for a turnkey log cabin, with land, can run anywhere from $175,000 up to $350,000 or more depending on the size and some go into the millions…

      While you may discount the lake, but having a dock can easily add at least $14k-$20k… Cost of building one usually requires around $12,000 for permitting, design and a contractor… Along with variables depending on where on the lake, how shallow, how big of a dock, etc.

      But that’s before factoring the curb appeal of having the dock has on the total property value… There’s a difference from having a view of a lake from having direct and convenient access to one…

      Mind, there are places where it is no longer allowed to build any permanent structures near the water, aside from something like the dock, unless you find an old grandfathered in property or what you can do with the property is usually fairly restricted… and that’s one of the reasons for a premium pricing for property that’s basically within walking distance to the water…

      Sure, not for everyone but there are people who value the environment more than the living space and there are those who prefer off-grid living of this type…

      Btw, that pole is not holding up the roof… It’s just a beam brace for edge of the loft… But that brings another consideration of logs and timber framing is long term maintenance. Since all wood structures are more prone to seasonal changes and wood can warp and change shape over time if not properly maintained.

      Log cabins, especially, because they are usually built from green wood. So there’s significant change the first few years as the wood seasons and dries and the structure has to be adjusted until those changes becomes more stable… Along with other long term maintenance requirement of all wood structures…

    Does anyone else notice the porch chair looks like it’s about to fall off the deck? It’s a bit precarious. If someone sat on it. I think they might just tumble off the deck. . . I don’t know if they moved it to the edge so it would look more spacious or what..

    That pole holding up the second floor would bother me quite a bit.
    You’re paying for the land in this case. The cabin itself is probably worth
    $40K max. No kitchen and no inside bathroom? LOL.
