My homestead is located in one of the most beautiful places in Alaska .. Haines is small 2,500 people ..our economy is tourism and fishing .. The weather is dramatic can be amazingly beautiful as well as temperamental dramatic and sometimes wicked !!!
My house sits on the side of a mountain one mile from downtown Haines .. I have 2 .5 acres which I am working on creating sustainable living . I have a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath house with a loft and a small studio ..I have built my place in last 3 years and it has full amenities ... shower, septic, electric and Hot Tub ...I have paddle boards and bikes to use and there is hiking right out my door ... It has a private feel and beautiful view. For most of my Workaway's I have a small Camper with electricity and internet ( although limited data)
There are always projects here from light construction , Perma culture gardening subsistence gathering putting up fish berries canning smoking jarring lots of sustainable living skills I’ve been working on self watering systems for my gardens via a spring on my property. We love making group meals having campfires and living peacefully with the wildlife including bears and moose eagles and all the other small critters who Corxist peacefully in this wild natural environment..
