02:22 pm - $300/m or barter - house w/ 40 acres SE OK
1200 sq ft house on 40 acres in SE Oklahoma. It's in a tiny community of about 10-15 other homes in the Kiamichi valley area. Most services are available and there is a (slightly) larger town about 10 miles away for gas and basic groceries.

There are two houses on the 40 acres and I live in the little one (930 sq ft) across a one-lane road so you would be sharing the land with me. However, the houses are far apart can't be seen from the road or from each other.

This is a beautiful place to live and I am so lucky to have found a home here.

The reason the rent is so low is because I will be sharing the property and hope to be friends with the renters. Barter is available in either labor or goods if you want to knock off some of the rent. Utilities are not included and will run about $50 per month for general use. You will also be responsible for upkeep of the property, mowing, lightbulb changes etc. Though large problems (plumbing, electric) will be taken care of by me.

Everyone is welcome and while the tone of the area is conservative I don't find it overwhelming. Personally I am liberal and non-religious. Though church-going conservatives are welcome as well.

Email me for photos and more info. Or just respond to the thread. I might be a few days between responses because I don't have regular access to the internet.

I hope someone responds to this...

Hi-I see you posted this a while ago, how has this worked out for you? I'm established for the farm season but am slowly starting to think about What's Next and all that, as in where I'll go this fall and/or winter... I spent some time in Tulsa some years back and really dug it. It would be nice to swing through Oklahoma again even if it's just on my way some place else like last time.

It actually got rented about the same time I posted this, a family moved down from Pennsylvania. It's working out really well, we just had to trust that neither of us were serial killers and take a chance. It's nice to have someone nearby to cackle over the Lehman's catalog with. I hope you find what you're looking for.

Sweet! Yeah, the Lehmans catalogs are pretty slick. As soon as I have a couple hundred extra dollars there's a couple gadgets in there I would like to buy for sure. Thanks, I also hope I find what I'm looking for, even if I don't the search is fun enough.
