Home improvements - Frontier Alaska style

Spring (before the leaves appear) is a great time to take photos of old buildings. I walked around some of the older sections of Fairbanks today taking pictures. This building, near the Chena River on First Avenue, had long fascinated me. The lot it sits on is only slightly wider than the house, so it has been added on to lengthwise over the years. According to Fairbanks North Star Borough land records, the earliest portion of the house (the log cabin) dates to 1910.
