The porch is 4 feet. I have one plan with a full loft and a ladder crawl hole. The loft does extend over the porch. It seemd to be more than the client wanted to tackle.

On the first plan I wondered about the ridge being so long. Can a ridge board in that roof be spliced ok about mid span?
Use that ladder to split the ridge over. G
Would 2x6 floor joists on 16" centers spanning 6 feet or less be ridgid enough for a floor?
You might also look into using SIPS panels which are smaller and more easily transported (4x8)
By doing it that way the units can be easily transported and will be super insulated for use in the winter.
The downside of SIPS panels for roof construction is the structural ridge beam. If you build the roof with rafters, ceiling joists for the loft and collar ties in the cathedral area you can use conventional framing and splice the ridge at will.
That's an awesome idea you have there Mic. To get back on the OP question, I think Gus had it right suggesting a chopper. If you can panelize most of it I would think up there in Alaska there is no shortage of willing chopper pilots who could fly it in for you.
There are probably some companies with birds big enough to lift all the materials in one shot to the site.
Please let us know how this thing progresses, I am very interested to see how this idea pans out. :thumbsup:
