Hello, I am interested in buying a remote parcel in Alaska. I am only looking to stay seasonal, April – Nov. Right now I have my eyes set on a piece of land north Skwentna air strip. I have not made up my mind if I want to build my own cabin or have logs / kit barge up the river and delivered by helicopter. I read this in a earlier post that it is possible. Do you have any idea how far a barge can go up the Yentna River? The land that I am looking at sits on the Yenta River, directly north of the Skwenta air strip. I have been trying to find a log cabin kits retailers in Alaska from websites and I have had no luck (trying to get an estimated price for wood 500-800sqft). I am currently working overseas and I will be coming to Alaska at the beginning of July and I would like to get the ball rolling. I have heard that North Pioneer is a good freight helicopter company to work with from what I have read on this forum.
I have heard that the area around Skwentna has some real good hunting and fishing?
Any additional information would be much appreciated.
