This is an ideal location for living off the grid with lots of wildlife, moose, bear, caribou, wolverine, wolves, doll sheep. Sellers also trapped, beaver, marten, lynx, red fox, wolverine, wolf, otter, coyote, muskrat and ermine in the winter. Lake has lake trout and Grayling. Gravel airstrip near this property.

otal of 1,656 square feet of living space plus 1,064 square feet of barn/shop/carport space.

Main Cabin has a total of 1,560 sq. ft, building is 30′ X 26′ 2 stories w/ a 30′ x 4 covered front porch facing the lake, built in 1994 on good gravel ground with no permafrost. Sellers lived year round in this cabin from 1999 to 2014 then switch to just summer months to date. The upstairs consists of storage under the eves and 5 each built in bunks for extra sleeping space in the central area. The downstairs is split into 2 rooms, the front half is faced with large window serves as a kitchen and living room. The back half serves as a master bedroom, bath and pantry. The kitchen floor is linoleum for ease care while the living room and bedroom has carpet for warmth. There are 5 large windows in the front room, 2 in the back so lots of light comes in during daylight hours and these are all double paned. There is a sliding window din the front and a flip open window in the back for circulation during the summer. Both of those have screens. There is also a small screened sliding window upstairs and there is a screen door installed onto the porch roof so the main door can can be fastened open for more circulation. This door also serves as a fire escape since there are stairs accessing the porch roof.

The ceiling has 8″ of fiberglass insulation as does most of the crawl space, walls have 6″ as does the floor between downstairs and upstairs. The main heat is a Blaze King wood stove, for warmer but still cool weather there is an Efel oil stove. We burned about 12 to 14 cords of wood each year and possibly up to 55 gallons of fuel oil. The propane consumption was about 7 each 100 lb bottles per year for the refrigerator, kitchen range and propane lights. Everyday power is supplied via a 12 volt wind generator and 1 solar panel with 4 batteries for storage. This services the 12 volt fluorescent lights, a 12 bolt on demand pump, weather station, radio and CB radio for communication with other hunters around the lake during September. The is no internet or TV service but there is a TV and DVD/VCR player with plenty of tapes.

All of the furniture, dishes, pots and pans, etc, stay so this is a totally turn-key and ready to live in. Besides the appliances and heating stoves there is a 60″ round maple dining table with 2 extra leaves and 4 matching chairs, 2 recliners, a queen size hide-a-bed couch, a matching corner chair and another chair that would fit between the recliners to make another couch so there is lots of comfortable seating. There is also a folding conference table and 8 sturdy metal folding chairs. The bed and storage cabinets for clothes also stay. 2 each plastic tubs w/ legs go with the wringer washer for rinsing laundry. Upstairs is a 2 piece metal bunk bed for children plus 5 extra long twin mattresses w/ water proof coverings that came from the Alaska State Ferry System on the built-in-bunks and lots of sheets and pillow cases.

Pole Barn –  16′ x 32′ = 512 Sq. Ft. 16′ high with 14′ double doors with extra strong hinges complete with grease certs. This was built in 2012 and serves to store the army 6X, 4 wheelers, snow machines, fuel and misc equipment during the winter time. It has 8 freezer doors installed for windows so there is plenty of light to work and 2 sections of plywood on the lake end are hinged to open for air circulation so it makes a good place to hang moose during hunting season.

Original Log Cabin –  8′ x 12′ = 96 square feet has 2 bunks and 2 each 110 volt freezers for moose, caribou and sheep meat. In 1988 we added a 16′ x 12′ room to that building which now serves as a shop. Later we added another 12′ x 12′ room onto the back of that for a skinning shed and have since added about a 12′ x 18′ carport to park either the snow machines or 4 wheelers while they are in constant use.
