yellowstone-parks and local scenery

yellowstone scenery

The area around Island Park is so close to yellowstone-Parks, that there seems to be a never ending abundance of beauty and wildlife.

I think that is why so many people are buying up land in Island Park.

There is such an awesome view of the Grand Teton Peaks from Island Park and parts of Yellowstone.


Wolves have been re-introduced and protected in Yellowstone Park. They have become strong and unbelievably prolific.

pine marten

The Pine Marten has also made a come back. They feed mostly on squirrels so a lot of people don’t let them live. They have the most beautiful orange patch of fur under their neck.


The local otter population has also grown ever since the price of furs took a downturn back in the 1970’s.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.

Thank you,

I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
