The handyman is selling his house

Thank you for stopping by,
I built this house in November of 2018 and have lived here since that time. The property is located on a dead end street, don’t believe google maps (see picture below), there is only one way in and out. Its a quiet dirt road, Im about a mile off the paved road. I have 9 neighbors. 2 are cattlemen, 5 are retired, 1 family (Legal secretary and High Tech salesman with two kids) this is just their country home when they want to get out of the bustling city. 1 owns a construction company.

I can’t speak enough about the location, quiet and peaceful. You are in the country so there is hunting and fishing (Im very close to lake Tawakoni). Quinlan is growing like crazy, but you don’t have to worry about new neighbors because everyone owns huge pieces of farm land and woods all around me.

The 100 thousand dollar question: Why am I moving? One reason is I want to join my friends who are building a Hebrew Roots community in Broken Bow Oklahoma. But mostly its because I dont have the funds to finish the project.


The house is still under construction, You will have to have cash or collateral until you finish the project, the bank will not give you a mortgage on it until its finished.

My friend tried to follow google maps….There is only one way in, and Im serous about it. 4 wheel drive ain’t diddly squat.

The property is .78 of an acre, just under one acre. Its not a perfect square but is about 200 feet on each side with a long side on the east (where the private road is)

My house is 18 feet across the front and 24 feet long. Its one room and a bathroom. It has a 6×10 front porch. 480 square feet of living space. IT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION, the house is dried-in, meaning its a water tight shell, the only thing finished through the sheetrock is the bedroom and bathroom.

It does have electrical pole with interior breaker box, Water Meter hook up (No meter), Water Tower for rain collection (Incomplete project), Area for a Hugelkulture/Permaculture garden (Logs gathered, needs to be buried). A Stock pond, 8 huge Western Cedar Trees, half the property is wooded. The exterior walls are 2×6 for extra insulation. The roof is insulated between the rafters (this is code for all houses up north). My energy consumption is about $50 per month. It has a Lorex security system with 4k cameras (top of the line system).

This house and land is being self sold. If you want an attorney or realtor, thats fine, but YOU must pay for that cost.

This is the procedure to buy and sell without a 3rd party and in a safe and Trustworthy way for both of us.
We will meet at the bank, you will write me a check and I will give you the Land Purchase Agreement.

When your check has cleared and the funds are fully transferred (usually takes 3 to 10 days), I will have 7 days to give you the Deed and any paperwork with the house and land. I will also have 7 days from that time to completely move out and give you the keys.
