Dennis & Julie

Dennis & Julie invited us to build an addition onto their home. We added a kitchen & two bathrooms. Their home is at the foothills of the Talkeetna Mountains in a beautiful, quaint setting. Appliances will go in this week so they will soon be happily settled into their new home!

working on the website

The North Country Builders website is sadly outdated so we've been working on fixing that problem. Here are some detail shots I took at a jobsite this week. The guys thought I was crazy, but it was fun. Hopefully, the new site will be up & running in October. Watch for it:)

complete cabin

Remember this photo? Cabin transformed! Mike & Susan's remodel on Big Lake is complete. What a great place this will be for them to retreat to.

Here is a garage that we built this summer. It took just three weeks to build, but has made the homeowner forever happy:)

the house, not the truck

This struck Tom as funny as the tow truck hauled his truck away. It just doesn't seem to go together very well..."Built Better than it has to be", our motto for building, and a tow truck. Well, even good builders have truck problems. It's a good thing he can laugh about this site...:)

looking back a bit

Wes & Karen moved into their new home that we built this winter. They were a joy to work with throughout the entire building process. I recently did a photoshoot of their home & it was fun to see the house furnished as a "home."

We started building a detached garage last week.
Our good friends at Valley Block have been providing concrete for our jobs since we started building 11 years ago.
