As some of you know, I own some land in the Healy area.
I would like to build a cabin onsite. Probably just for my wife and I. We would occupy the cabin between May and the end of September. Not continuously but from time to time.
Thinking we'd probably use wood to heat when needed. Can drive within 100' of property.
What might be the 'average' size of a cabin in Alaska?
What 'R' factor of insulation might be appropriate?
Are there Alaska specific building codes that I may not be aware of?
What kind of snow loads do I need to plan for?
Is it ok for me to build for myself?
Thanks for the help!
