“Discover the Kind of Housing the Workers in North Dakota's Williston Basin Really Want...”

Most rental housing for laborers in North Dakota provides very little privacy. Dozens of men share the same common space while they’re eating, while they’re sleeping, even while they’re relaxing.

The men have access to cooked meals, but are among their peers all day, every day, whether they are at work or at home.

We were not convinced this was the best housing solution, so we surveyed the labor force working in the Bakken oil fields. We asked them directly what kind of housing they really wanted.

Do You Know What They Told Us?

They told us they did NOT want to stay in the Spartan “man camps” that you’ll find all over the Bakken region of North Dakota.

They told us they’d prefer better accommodations -- with more privacy -- even if it meant they had to cook their own meals!

It’s an understatement to say we were shocked. We fully expected most workers to rate cooked meals higher than privacy. But we were wrong.

So rather than build another “me too” community housing facility, we built ours based on the feedback we received from the workers themselves.
