Old little log building for sale in Pennsylvania

Mary Haggerty sent us these photos of this beautiful little log building for sale (somewhere in Pennsylvania) by JC Woodworking 

I don’t see this one on their website (above), but check out the 2-story log building. Here’s what JC Woodworking wrote to Mary recently:

“…pictured a small, oak log summer kitchen. The building was used as the summer kitchen on a farm (apple orchard) in southern Pennsylvania and dates to the mid 1800’s, possibly earlier. The overall size is 12 by 16′. It’s a 1.5 story…Ceiling height on the first floor is 7′ to bottom of the floor joists. On 2nd floor, height from floor to peak is 6’10” with a 30″ sidewall. Wall height (exterior) is just over 10′ and the height to the peak is 14.5′. 3 top plates need to be replaced….The rafters would also need to be replaced, but is in otherwise very good condition.…

…to reassemble this structure on your property; the cost to set the frame (with new replacement logs for the top 3 plates and new rafter system as well as leveling the sill plates to accommodate your foundation) is $6K plus travel to your site and lodging.…

Price for structure (including floor joists) dismantled and tagged as-is: $8000.”

  1. Hi Lloyd, slightly off-topic, but Amazon just recommended to me your new "Tiny Homes" book as a pre-order…so, I see the book will be out soon. I'm looking forward to it!
