The U.S. Air Force is auctioning off six recreational cabins in the Kenai Peninsula community of Seward, and they could be a steal. The minimum bid starts at $25, but the winning bidders must commit to having the 32-by-32-foot duplex cabins — containing two identical living areas — moved from their current location by May 15.
The cabins were part of the Air Force’s recreation camp at Seward and were used by active duty and retired military members. They are summer cabins, meaning they have little insulation, but they come with plumbing, electrical hookups and even a kitchen and bathroom, complete with shower.
When the military is finished using its gear, much of it is sold to the public in auctions. But selling recreational cabins is unusual for Government Liquidation, the company tasked with auctioning the buildings. Still, the cabins in Seward are expected to receive a lot of bids.
“There has been quite a few people that have called to get further details on some of the different aspects of the cabins,” said Chris Schlotmann, site manager for Government Liquidation.
Schlotmann said the auction would be conducted online at govliquidation.com beginning at 12:01 a.m. (AST) Feb. 23, and ending at 1 p.m. on Feb. 25. Schlotmann said interested parties could set up an appointment to preview the cabins in person by calling 480-367-1300.
