      The hut measures 200 square feet, based on the listing by RE/MAX Crest Realty.

      The cabin has a “loft and separate bathroom with compost toilet”.

      “Propane fridge, stove and lighting but has not been used for a while so buyer will need to do their own due diligence,” the listing stated.

      It sold six days later on July 12 for $490,000.

      The property has a 2022 valuation of $337,600, mostly for the land where the hut sits on.
