I was going to build a cabin with a well, septic and electricity but after getting estimates for these things I am now wondering if I should just go off grid. MEA told me that it would cost almost $20 a foot to hook up to electrical and I am almost a 1,000 feet away from it. Then I was told it could be $15,000 to $25,000 just for the septic and who knows how much for a well. This is way more than I want to spend just to enjoy my cabin on weekends. I am going to go with a propane tank and can possibly use all propane appliances and lights but not sure what to do about water and a toilet. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. My cabin will be out off Church Rd in Wasilla near Chignaki Pond.
