Price: $175,000

Though many tiny living enthusiasts subscribe to the notion that less is more, most tiny houses come equipped with modern conveniences like electricity, flushing toilets, and running water—albeit on a much smaller scale. But this tiny-ish house (585 square feet) in Ward, Colorado is completely off-grid: No well, no septic, no electricity. Nada.

But what this rustic cabin lacks in amenities, it more than makes up for in its location, charm, and the very real opportunity to live a simple, pared down life. And the light-filled one-bedroom has everything you need: Double-height open-plan living area with views to the nearby Indian Peaks, a bright bedroom in the "attic" space, and a deck.

The home is heated with propane gas and also includes a free-standing wood-burning fireplace, while propane lanterns provide illumination. If you’re worried about the bathroom situation, don’t. The two-acre property comes with an outhouse, naturally. Located at 95 Bigbee Road, it’s asking $175,000.
