    I do like the concept. Spartan to be sure, but quite functional. It appears spacewise, it could be upgraded to suit the needs of its new owner.

    While I don’t in the least begrudge the simple, uncluttered look, I do wonder how the owners arrived at the selling price of $12K. Hey, ask what they like, it’s theirs to sell….but, w/o provision of a toilet, hot water for that shower and closet, I’d say they are a bit optimistic. Looks to be more of a weekend get-a-away than home.

    I am a follower, opening each of the newsletters, but I am still bewildered why to buy or build an $80,000 THOW when you can buy a heck of a travel trailer for $30,000 or less. I am not being critical. Just been in real estate for over 40 years and don’t see the point unless long term living is the goal. But no logic for traveling unless as spartan as this one. So, I’m a fan of this one, but probably going to need a toilet sooner or later.
