A Real Winter Indeed!

Well, we are having a real winter this year. You hear everyone talk about how much colder it was back in the day but if you look at the actual weather data from the 70's, 80's and 90's, we had some warm winters back then too. When I came here in 1978, I was told that it was much colder in the 50's and 60's and I'm sure it was but this winter has been unusual in that we have a lot of snow and it has been real cold on top of it.
It hasn't slowed our construction down however. We have some of the best off road travel conditions ever.
We will be freighting for another three months or so, so now is the time to have us do your cabin or at least freight the material for a summer build.
See you on the trail!

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

2011 was a really busy year and 2012 is looking strong as well. Our website traffic has more than doubled since last year at this time so we are gearing up for a busy season. We have become known for our off road projects but most of our projects have some road access. Most of our clients are from Alaska but many are from the lower 48 and are building vacation homes and others are having us build their primary residence.
Now is the time to schedule for summer work. We still have a few start dates available for summer and fall work but they usually go pretty fast this time of year. We have many projects scheduled throughout the state for this year and we are scheduling some for 2013.
Thankfully, Alaska hasn't been hit as hard economically as the rest of the country and we have been able to keep all of our crews working throughout the downturn.
The cabin kits have become more and more popular and we are constantly trying to improve our product to make them easier to build. Most folks have opted for the built-on-site cabins but if you have the time, the kits are a good option.
We look forward to seeing you in 2012!
