    Remote Cabin Contractors

    I have a cabin near Petersville, ALaska that I'm trying to sell. I almost had it sold when I discovered some rot in the log roof rafters.

    Bottom line is - I needs a new roof installed. I towed all the framing up to the cabin and had a contractor lined up to install it. He just notified me he will not be able to get to it for family reasons.

    Does anyone know of or have any experience with any remote cabin builders that may want to take on the job?



    Thanks,

    Jerry

    You have log roof rafters or log perlins? You could try .....

    Top Notch Log Builders
    Chris & Arthur Mannix
    Talkeetna
    907-733-2427

    They do log work, restoration and timber framing.

    If your perlins are rotting though, you've got a little more work than just re-roofing.

    Stalledout,

    Log purlins, not log rafters. The new roof I planned is to be standard frame 2x10 over log purlins.

    Thanks for the info - I'm calling them right this minute.
