January 3, 2020

I like this one! Kessler was built in 1929. It is located on 25 acres in Rupert, West Virginia. Two craftsmen built it from fallen trees on the property. The current owner found the house lost and in great disrepair in the woods in 2014. The home has updated plumbing and electric. Four bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,094 square feet. $115,000

From the Zillow listing:


KESSLER – Built in 1929 by two craftsmen of the time from actual fallen trees from the surrounding 25+- acreage. This Log Home had gone through many years of neglect and change of hands. The current owner found the home, in 2014, lost and ignored in the woods of Kessler WV. During the past 3 years new doors, windows, plumbing, electrical, bath, kitchen, water systems, exterior walls, interior walls, floor refinishing and installation, driveway access from the main road have brought the Log Home back to life. Absolutely remarkable transition and yet still very real characteristics of the life it has lived. An inspiration of Log Cabin living for this 4 bedroom, 1 bath home on 24 acres. No appliances convey. Only rear outbuilding conveys. Agent owned
