About Wall Tent Woodworks
We started Wall Tent Woodworks in 2019 out of a passion for building, science, and climate change solutions.
Stefan Milkowski moved to Alaska from New York in 2005 and has worked as a newspaper reporter, weatherization technician, and carpenter. He is a journeyman carpenter with Carpenters Local 1243 and has studied timber-framing at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, MN and with instructors from TimberHomes Vermont and the Yestermorrow Design/Build School. He served on the board of the Northern Alaska Environmental Center from 2014 to 2020.
The wall tent part
The canvas wall tent has a long history in Alaska, used for many years by miners, trappers, hunters, and travelers. While some of that history hasn’t been kind to natural resources, we wanted to honor this symbol of a life lived close to nature.
