RW:I like what you've done. Thanks for putting your project on this web site, you've already answered some of my questions regarding insulation, and heating.I may draw on some of your experience with more questions if I get my project off the ground this summer. I want to build in Willow, but am already running in to hurdles.The Mat-Su borough wants $500 just to apply for a code variance on set back from the lake. I don't have room to stay 75 feet from the water because of the shape of the lot. I can't apply for the variance without a site plan and survey, and that really can't be done until the snow melts. They said it will take 90 days for the permit. So much for the building season. If I can't start until August, I doubt I could get it buttoned up before winter returns. Ugh!I can also see that there may be issues over set back for well/septic with the DEC.If I get underway, I may hit you up for the name of the contractor you used since you're only about 20 miles up the road. I don't know the low down on any in the valley. I'm getting a little long in the tooth to be framing a roof, or putting on the roofing. I did my residence in Anchorage 18 years ago, and have no desire for any more high ladder stuff.I can't wait to see some more interior photos of your place. If I run in to so many obstacles with the MSB to make my project undoable, I'm considering some land up in Eagle's Nest as a backup. I prefer the waterfront, but I'm starting to get desperate.Cheers.
