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
*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!
