In 1991-92 Alaska Log Structures played a major role in log construction for
Knott’s Camp Snoopy at the Mall of America. At the peak of the project, we had
26 men working on various log components. One of the unique aspects of this
commercial project was that 27 semi loads of logs were taken out of burn areas
in and around Yellowstone National Park. Special curved logs that were drawn on
the plans by the architects required the use of white cedar from northern
Minnesota. The construction manager was in awe that we were able to match
the curves drawn on the plans with the logs we selected.

Mr. Greg Anderson,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your
hard work and efforts throughout this past year. We have come a long way and it
has been through your efforts that we are where we are today. It is seldom in
our careers that we have the opportunity to participate in a unique project such
as the Mall of America. Each of us has an individual role in this project, but it is
only through our collective efforts that the success of Mall of America can be
achieved. Our success depends on one another. Each of us are familiar with the
saying "One Small Step for Man, One Giant Step for Mankind". We can apply this
to ourselves and our participation on this project. I want to convey my heartfelt
appreciation for all of your time and effort with log construction this past year.
