We are building a simple house in Alaska. To keep costs down without sacrificing energy efficiency and square footage, we simplified the design. The floor plan is compact, but well planned. We are hoping to create a home for resale that is more affordable upfront and over it's lifetime - heating a home in Alaska can be so expensive.
Last week we got started by finalizing the design, building the foundation, and creating the main floor system.
This week, the walls go up! We built the upstairs loft floor. It's starting to look like a house.
