I figure with all the cabin building that this is a good place for this question. If there is a better one please let me know. We'll be moving to Alaska this summer for work at Elmendorf. We'll probably be living in Wasilla or Palmer. I do woodworking and would like to get into building canoes and timber framing. To that end I would like to get into processing my own lumber.
How is the availability of logs for lumber near anchorage? What's their cost? I'm thinking (without a dose of reality because I'm not there and don't know how things work on your neck of the woods) about building a kiln for personal use as well as for processing other people's wood for fun and profit.
I would welcome the comments of anybody that has been down this road.
