Here is your opportunity to make this place your own! The project is started and the ball is rolling, simply pick it up and finish it to your liking. There is an existing cabin on the premises you can live in while finishing your dream home. It is currently rented to a local dog musher along with the dog yard. Alternatively you can continue renting to offset some expenses while you build. Speaking of mushing, this area is a dog musher's paradise! Located on the trail system and close to the Yukon Quest trail this owner builder opportunity sits on a private 2 acre lot. But let's get back to your project. The house is on concrete pilings with adjustable piers. It is raised about 4' intentionally to allow for space to store a water holding tank, already on site, and skirting around the base. There is a septic system already installed ready to be tied into. The main floor is already framed and much of the materials needed to continue are already on site. The walls are 2x8 top and bottom studs with 24” on center staggered 2x4 studs for an energy efficient design with less thermal transfer, similar to a traditional double stud wall. The exterior dimensions are 24'x24' and a second story was the intended final design. The photos include a design similar to what the current owner had envisioned as the final product. There is a set of trusses onsite intended for a detached 12x22 garage. Current owner states she has invested about $80,000 in materials and labor alone to date, not to include the price of the land. There is power on site for the existing cabin. You have a big jump start on building your new home. You can see the end product in your head, simply pick up that rolling ball and run with it. Being sold AS-IS. Current owner is willing to consider owner finances purchase option, however greatly prefers buyer obtain lender financing is needed.
