how far north or southwest of anchorage will start hitting permafrost still in the ground level
i know i have been asking a lot of things about cabin building ,,but i can get a dome cabin for less than 35,000 and have shipped up there ..than haveing a home bult ..and belive me looking at the prices up there for some of the homes ..iam going to come out a head by doing it the way iam doing it..
my plan is to build a monolithic dome cabin with a earth cover to help with the heating and cooling cycles with a small wood stove for heating and cooking as need in the winter time with a mircowave oven to use as needed..with a small outdoor typle kitchen set up on the front pouch area for cooking in the summer time with a bbq propane grill set up for makeing drinner as need ..with the plan for the grey water system to be pumped out to the road section of the house road system under the rock gravel that will layed down for the entance to the home for the road ..with a well system that water is draw up from ground water supply..part of the plan is to sink the base about three to four ft below the ground level to make the small cabin foundation concete pad system with rebar and well head entance with a composting toliet system as need to keep the black water problem down with black water drainage problems ..plus part of the want of a well water so not to have to depend on city water system .
plus have a off grid style home that use a wind turbine system for winter time use to charge the battie bank and a solar panels set for summer time use to keep the battie bank charge as need for use..
there is a company called www.pacwind,com they sale a model that is design to catch the wind in any typle of brezze dureing the day and help keep the batties bank charge as need...
most of the earth covered homes that i have read about have been in heavy snow fall areas of the world..
my plan is try and find a place about one to three hours southwest of anchorage on a main road into the area..so to be able to travel back and forth as need to anchorage for diff things as need..like go to the movies and bookstores and other things as need
