Well, it is here. Winter that is. Temperatures are dipping into single digits and lower in some areas. The lakes in south central are mostly still open or very thin but will be ready for travel by the end of November. We have been inundated with requests for off road work and we are gearing up.
Now is the time to give us a shout if you're interested in building this winter.

Winter season

We are now pulling out our winter gear to be ready when winter hits. The first few days of cold weather usually exposes any weak links. The snow machines and sleds all have to be inspected and repaired if they haven't been already. Somehow it is hard to make yourself work on winter gear when the summer season is so busy.
This winter looks like a busy one too and we are ready for it!

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.

Fall Foundations

The warm weather has extended our fall season by a few weeks. We are still able to put in foundations without dealing with frost. We are also able to pour without tenting and heating. We still have our freight boat in the water.
If you want to start a project yet this year let us know and we should be able to get it started.
We install wood, concrete and steel pilings all winter so we never stop building.

A fellow can΄t keep people from having a bad opinion of him, but he can keep them from being right about it.

Family in Need

Our "Free Cabin to a Family in Need program" has generated a lot of interest. If you know of anyone in need, email us a message of their situation in 200 words or less so they can be eligible for selection on Thanksgiving day. A full description is on our October 1 blog and facebook post.

All generalizations are false, including this one.

Cabin Giveaway

We introduced our Cabin giveaway to a Needy Family on October 1. We have had great interest in the program. I should have mentioned that since this is our first offering, we want to build this first cabin on the road system in Southcentral or Interior Alaska.
Perhaps we will be able to offer a free cabin to bush Alaska in the future but we want to do this first one in an area where we can drive from our Palmer headquarters to the site.

Thanks everyone for your understanding!

We at Friesen’s Custom Cabins are implementing a new program to help a family in need by providing them with a FREE CABIN valued at $33,000!After October 1, 2011, a percentage of each cabin that we sell will go towards the building of a cabin for a family in need. Upon completion of this cabin in June 2012, a plaque will be posted on the wall with the names of each person we built for from October 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012.
Entries must be emaied to us with a description of your situation or someone that you know in 200 words or less. The winner will be posted on Facebook and our Blog on Thanksgiving Day 2011. The following criteria must be met to be selected:
You must have clear title to the property, and be on the road system.
This is going to be your primary residence.
We need to have assurance that you have the means to finish it enough to be livable; since this cabin will be a framed in shell.
The Cabin will be an 864 square foot single level cabin with two bedrooms, one bath, kitchen etc. We will be providing the dried-in shell built on the selected site at no cost.
In an effort to show appreciation to our community, we look forward to making a small contribution to those in need. Good luck to All!
