River Trip

Chatanika River

I went up the Chatanika River today to install the metal roofing on a semi-remote cabin. What a great day to be on the river. The fish were jumping, ducks everywhere, and several moose tried to outrun the river boat. Definitely a nice change of pace from working near town.

New Roof

It’s a cute 3-sided log cabin on a nice section of river. My only hangups were that I wanted to install the roof jack now for the chimney, but they were not ready to do so, and I would have liked to install just one run of metal roofing, but we went with a length that easily fit in the boat. Still, it was installed in one day, looks sharp, and no more tarp over the roof.

Not a bad day here in Interior Alaska.
