    The build date is an estimate. I imagine this could have been built anywhere from 1900 to about 1915-ish.

    A residence with these windows and ceilings (sans tiles) would be heavenly. 😉

    We just bought this place for $30,000, to include the contents. The town is way out there, but quiet. We’ll turn it into a house over time, unless the Gaine’s decide they want this project. Still awaiting word. Floors are pine, and pine shiplap walls. I fear the acoustic tile may have asbestos. One thing making this tougher is the sloping, stadium-style floor. We’re excited! Date of construction said to be 1912, but perhaps as early as 1905 for land purchase date.

    For a person willing and able to do some work themselves, this property, electrical work, foundation leveling, plumbing, mini-split climate control, works out to total cost so far of $88,000. This doesn’t count a garage, insulation, leveling the stadium-style sloping floor in the sanctuary (DIY), removing the failing vinyl siding, or painting. Still, very affordable. Purchase price $30,000.
