Default two words...

Why are Alaskan buildings so "ugly"? Two words...

FUNCTION, and...

SHIPPING

Go price what a load of concrete or a granite slab goes for outside of the railbelt area of Alaska, and you'll be shocked that there are ANY buildings that aren't composed entirely of plywood, tyvek, and peeled logs.

That cabin can have rotting logs, a dirt floor, and mice hiding in the corners, but if it's warm and dry and the closest 5-star hotel is hundreds or thousands of miles away it seems like heaven on earth.
I'll take it Marty but those danged mice gotta go!!

Yeah, well, I'm not crazy about the mice either. But if it's a cabin with mice or sleeping in the snow, I'll take the cabin.

I stayed in one trappers cabin that was infested with mice...lots of stories to tell about that.

Here's one... Have you ever been awakened by ice cold mouse feet running across your face while you are snug and warm in your sleeping bag? Let me tell you...that will wake you up in a hurry.

Not mice or a mouse, but I had a GIANT spider crawling on mine, smashed it and went into labor...I was awake at that point...

I have very fond memories of sleeping in the cabin at the lake in Wisconsin, and a mouse sticking its face thru a hole in a speaker of an old stereo speaker, just checking us out.
