FC: Building A Log Cabin in Alaska
1: A big thank you to our loving family who is always there for help and support. Also a big thank you to the people who helped build our beautiful home.
2: It all started with a dream my parents had to build a home in Alaska.
3: They saved their money and bought land along the Chena River and soon cleared it out.
4: After clearing the land, the next step was to get dirt...lots and lots of dirt!
5: As kids we loved to "help." | After dumping many loads of dirt they staked the whereabouts of the cabin.
6: Now its time for some logs!! My parents and family went and cut logs down themselves.
7: They worked many hours cutting and loading logs to bring to the land.
12: After weeks of peeling logs and spraying them with a sealer, they began building... log by log.
16: The inside was coming together!
18: The kitchen before & after!
19: All of us kids loved picking out our rooms!
20: All it needs now is doors and windows!
21: After 2 years of cutting, peeling, spraying, and building, the cabin finally came together.
