It's actually a quonset... (honestly don't know the difference), but we're planning on painting it red and white this summer...to make it a true barn look. The actual red barn next to it...to give you an idea of the size of the quonset is a horse barn and chicken coop. Looks small in the photo. I know the home was custom built (a WELL built home...very rare these days) and built back in the 70's. The outbuildings (minus the garage) I believe are MUCH older. I know there are a couple of buildings that are over 100 years old. My husband and I actually got married in that quonset. VERY big. I LOVE the old farmsteads around here. It's cold, yes, but VERY homey!! When you get here you feel like you're home. Also, it's MUCH easier to adapt to cold than it is to the heat. My husband is from Texas so he's still not used to the cold but can tolerate it. You can ALWAYS dress for the cold...but you can only take off so many clothes! We actually have so much fun in the winter. We dress for the weather and go out sledding, build snow forts etc... The kids love it!!

Here's a nice little refuge in the middle of nowhere close to where the Unabomber was caught (no joke).

Default $150,000

There's just a couple of places under that price here. This is one of them.

I believe it was around 800 to 900 square ft. 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.

Eh, you get the picture(all counties for this site). None of them are anything special. You can find good deals in cool areas though for 150k like the Beavercreek one

This area is one of those overpriced areas where you can see how cookie cutter homes have been inflated(can find better deals and get as good a house for 150k)

if you look at the whole page you can see how Ohio's prices are being inflated ike everywhere else, condiminiums costing over 150k and cookie cutters in areas that are average to down right nothing special at all. The average job in Ohio probably pays $8-12. Columbus is the cleanest and newest(but most overpriced).

Yea see here. On this site when I put in 3bdr 1bth 150k single family home I get 5000+ returns. I had to narrow it down to 150k to a max of 150k to get the listings to show. Here is a better idea of what you can find in Ohio for 120k-150k(even in the cities because Ohio's cities are a mixture of big city/small town feel)
