I can’t think of a better place to build an E-Z Hogan!
Now’s the time to get your hogan brackets to do your project too!
Am trying to make multiple sales in Alaska so I can deliver/do set-ups/ get to see Alaska! The more brackets I take, the lower the delivery price will be on each one. So if you are in Alaska or are between Colorado and Alaska and are interested, please contact me. Thanks, David
E-Z Hogan brackets being used/soon to be used in Seattle, WA area, Naturita, CO; Arroyo Hondo, NM; Farmington, NM; Ellsworth, Maine; Glenevis, Alberta; Crawford, CO & Darien Gap, Panama
Including a sauna, a sweat lodge, and a beach house.
I may have put this picture up before. Looks like it will be a lovely place to live when done.
A couple weeks ago I put up the frame, mostly by myself. Have since used the roof ring as a hoisting point to pull an 1100 lb diesel engine, and lift the front end of a Jeep off the ground for fun. Plan to rig the Jeep and lift the whole thing off the ground. With sheathing on the roof and with walls it would be much stronger but the frame is plenty strong by itself. If in the area come see it.

How to build a hogan using less time and money
OK, we will sell you the E-Z Hogan top-of-wall brackets and the roof ring, saving you the cost of the base brackets and base 4x4s.
Get 8 big cedar posts and set them for your corners, saving the cost of a concrete foundation.
Trim the tops of the posts so that they are level with each other and so the top-of-wall brackets will slide on them.
Install the top-of-wall brackets and 4x4s around the tops of walls.
Support the roof ring in the center with scaffolding.
Install the rafters.
Install walls and roofing.
If you know a cheaper and easier way to do it then please tell us.
What does it cost to build a Hogan from start to finish???
It all depends on what you put into it, if you are building to codes, if you have a dirt floor, what your loading conditions are, etc. It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100 a square foot.
