building houses in Alaska

Alaska has an extreme sub-Arctic rainforest climate. It's a tough place to build a house. What is learned in Alaska will be helpful to other cold climates. Turns out there is a Cold Climate Housing Research Center associated with the University of Alaska. They even developed a wall system, dubbed REMOTE (pdf), which is a stick-built system. There is more info than I can digest in one sitting. Enjoy.
