From the Zillow listing:


PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! This unique 976 sqft cabin does not conform to standard requirements for a residential listing and all square footage is listed as Other. Enjoy 3+ acres of wooded privacy with possibilities galore. The 1929 cabin was reconstructed on this site after WWII and has been maintained and added onto by the same owners for decades. A full history, as written by the owner, can be found in documents and is worth a read! The cabin was used as a rental for many years and the property offers a detached 313 sqft vaulted workshop that is fully wired, so there are opportunities for income production. The large covered porch is fantastic! The 2 bedroom septic permit may allow for expansion and there is a potential build site nestled between the cabin and workshop (no recent perc). The ceilings in the main living space are under 7ft. There is no HVAC system in place – a window unit and propane stove heater are currently used to cool/heat the space. Tenant removed stove – wired for gas or electric. The loft upstairs has a half bath and closet. Addition on back of house serves as utility room and bonus space.
