March 12, 2019

This log cabin was built in 1790! It is located on 21.29 acres in Rockwell, North Carolina. Would make a nice weekend getaway. Feel like they are asking a bit too much for it. The current owner added on a porch and an addition on the back which has room for kitchen, bathroom, and a loft for kids. Don’t believe it currently has power. The listing says, “live off grid or add power located on property”. Two bedrooms and 500 square feet. $279,000
