Attached is an address to a link with some pictures of the property. This website "ecoproperty.ca" is pretty amazing with links to permaculture and sustainable living etc. I just recently found it on the web.
Contact me if you are interested in the property. Please pass it on to your friends as well. Also, if we can not sell soon, we might consider a wwoof type situation for the tiny house someday (picture is shown). Thanks!
