Hi, welcome to AK House Project! I started this as a way to document my housebuilding project in Anchorage, Alaska. I purchased land in 2017 and started building fall of 2019. My goal is to be as transparent and informative as possible about the process. Building a house is a long, long, long road and there is a lot to know and share.
AK House Project is mostly documented via its Instagram account, but I created this website as well for folks who aren’t on the ‘gram.
I’m a born-and-raised Alaskan who lived outside the state for way too many years before moving back in December 2014. I currently work as a graphic and web designer here in Anchorage. I love getting outside, whether that means packrafting, mountain biking, skiing, or backcountry skating. I’ve produced a couple short outdoor films, and occasionally write about the outdoors for venues like Backpacker Magazine and ADN.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
Owner-building my first home in Anchorage, Alaska! Hoping to be as informative and transparent as possible about the ups, downs, and in-betweens.
