The Chronicle tells us another modular player has entered the housing game in the oil boom of North Dakota. Colorado-based Confluence has already set the first of ten units of apartments called Confluence at Harvest Hills, as the initial 12 modules were sited May 15. Occupancy of the first unit is set for Aug. 1, 2012. The high end, one to three-bedroom apartments will be family friendly and energy efficient, and accessible to schools, shopping, and other services. Chief Custom Homes is manufacturing the apartments and intends to continue assembling the remaining units over the next year. Samuel Haviland of Confluence says, “We are developing a housing project that raises the bar on quality construction, and provides a family-oriented environment for a workforce that all too often deals with the strain of being away from spouses and children.” MHProNews.com has learned the housing shortage is so severe some people are living in tents, campers, and even cars.
