Greetings from rural Alaska!

We are both recently retired and transitioning to our next adventure in life. We have lived year-round just north of Denali National Park for the past 30 plus years. By necessity we lived those first 6 years off-grid. When electricity became available, we extended the road to our property, drilled a water well, and transitioned from a dry-cabin lifestyle to a 21st century American-style home.

While employed as an electrician, carpenter, plumber, and mechanic, Jim literally built our own home.

While we currently do not own any pets, we had the pleasure to call several dogs family members.

We are both healthy, active, good communicators, and non-smokers.

We take great pride in the house we built and the home that it has created. We are hard working and will take care of your home as if it were ours.

No rating Jim and Sheila Craig were exceptional as house/dog sitters for us over a three-week period. They were excellent communicators before-hand, expressing a strong desire to do the job well. While in our home, they took our dog for daily walks and adventures, kept our houseplants looking great, and left the place looking immaculate. We could not have asked for better people and could not have been more comfortable in, and confident with them. We recommend them highly.
