Storyline

Buying Alaska proves that forgoing basic amenities is a reasonable tradeoff when it comes to breathtaking views and stunning wild surroundings that you can't find anywhere in the lower 48 states. Offering much more than living quarters, these properties are so in tune with the extraordinary landscape that it's often what's beyond the house that proves to be the main attraction, from the ability to hunt and fish from your back deck, to extreme seclusion on your own private island, to self-sustaining features such as smokehouses and greenhouses. However, there are also dangers that come with all the beauty, and living in this rugged and remote terrain can lead to animal attacks and brutal winters that cut you off from society.

Same home two different shows
2 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watch Buying Alaska and Living Alaska. First a family on Buying Alaska bought a home. At the end of the show they showed the family and friends playing cards in the home's basement. A new episode of Living Alaska just appeared and this couple was looking at the exact same house which was still for sale. Now I am wondering if any of these families are actually buying the homes. The buying Alaska episode appeared last season. I can't believe the family moved in and out in less than a year. The episode was memorable because the previous episode they showed a lamp with real deer feet as the stand. The husband loved it and asked for it to be part of the deal. The episode on Living Alaska showed the same basement, neighbor's house, lake and the deer lamp. I will be really disappointed if the families are not buying these homes. I also would like to know how many families moved out of Alaska after buying their home.
