Missionary Housing Construction Project

Project Description
The original KCAM studios were built in 1963 and were in use until a new studio was built in 2003, less than one mile from its original location.  Plans are to repurpose the original studio building into housing for station volunteers. There is minimal housing available for rent in this rural community.

The KCAM housing project is structured in two phases.
Phase 1 has begun with the building of a basement foundation on which the former radio studio building has been placed. Plans are to subdivide the lower level into two apartments with shared kitchen, living room and laundry facilities totaling 1,320 square feet. The upper level is being renovated into living space with three bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen, living room and laundry room. The timeline is critical with the short building season in Alaska’s climate. The ground work and septic labor are being donated by local contractors, and all renovation labor is also by volunteers, leaving a remaining estimated cost of $71,000 for materials.

As of Spring 2020, what remains to be completed?

Siding, soffit on the outside of the KCAM units.

Downstairs: Finish painting walls, lay flooring, fram and trim windows and doors, hang doors, install kitchen cabinets and appliances.


Phase 2 includes purchasing one house and building another for missionary families who will serve at KCAM at an estimated total cost of $350,000.
