49th Estate

The home that mushers Susan Butcher and David Monson shared in Fairbanks was built with the layout of a cabin in mind. The kitchen, living room, and dining room all form one large space, where all of the activity happens.

David Monson and Susan Butcher met on the Iditarod Trail in 1979. The pair had some specific criteria for their home, which they named Trailbreaker Kennel, and where Butcher's spirit is very much alive today.

After their home burned down in 2009, a family on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula has spent their first successful winter in their Earthship -- a house built from recycled or sustainable materials.Ben Anderson

Kelly Hagelund and Willow King take us on a tour of their Earthship located in the Southcentral Alaska town of Kasilof.
