An Accounting of the Cost to Build

Short and sweet– an accounting of the cost to buy land and build a cabin in Alaska (entirely my own experience and not a guarantee or even a reasonable estimation of your costs):

$15,000.00         5 acres of land accessible by the road system
575.00                  1 day bulldozer rental, including fuel
661.71                   1 day excavator rental, including fuel
$16,236.71          Total


*Also, I have left out things like property taxes (only about $300 a year so far) and interest on my loan for the property. Because I’m an auditor and I say these things are not material… because that’s how auditors roll!
