From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of history! This cozy, retro cabin was once housing for the Fontana Dam workers back in the 1950’s. These original tiny houses are scattered throughout the area, but none as meticulously restored as this one! The first thing you’ll notice is the striking black exterior, accented with earthy green trim. Step onto the newly built deck with hog wire railing, which gives you unobstructed views of your lush surroundings. Once inside, you’re encompassed with a warm wood interior & green accents carried from the exterior. Small plank oak hardwood was installed throughout, along with matching tongue & groove walls & ceilings. Many of the original items of the cabin, including the built-in cabinets, interior doors & bedroom dresser were restored to their former glory. All new light fixtures installed throughout. Mini split heat & AC installed. Brand new Pex plumbing throughout the cabin & a new water heater. Hickory cabinets with a beautiful quartz countertop were added, along with a playful retro-style refrigerator, which pays homage to the cabin’s roots. Feel as if you’re stepping back in time, while still enjoying the modern amenities you desire in a contemporary cabin.
