The Affordable housing in North Dakota

My husband recently pulled our 19' Scamp home to Iowa covered in red dust, of course. Here is the new "Man Camper" soon to be my new home away from home. We made the decision to leave our oldest in charge of the chickens, dog and house since it has become evident my husband won't be finding work near home. Notice the deck/sidewalk. They tore out some temporary labs at work so Greg was able to get enough free lumber to build a lean-to.

It's not. The Scamp came home Thanksgiving and is home in Decorah, IA. This is the stickie one in Dickinson, N. Dakota where my husband is working. Much more adaptable to winter living.

Grew up in Iowa and Spent a year in Langdon, ND. I thought I knew cold then wintered up there. The frost line was about 6 ft deep. Go get some bales of straw and insulate around the bottom of the camper. Heat tape on the water and propane line, some rock salt for the grey and black tanks and maybe a heater for those tanks and one for the camper battery. Be sure to have a block heater (Popcorn heater) for your vrhicle and don't forget to completely role up your windows so the snirt doesn't fill up the vehicle during one of the storms. And enjoy the Northern Lights.

The vestibule looks great. That will help a lot.
It will be cold, not like you know it in Decorah, but you've been to ND before, I'm sure.
I like a lot of pairs of wool socks... varying weights. And two sets of outergear... boots, coats, mittens, hats, scarves... one to wear, one to dry. Is there an outlet in the vestibule?
Honestly, I don't miss winter that much.... but I do miss the first snowfall. And the Northern Lights.
The strawbales around the perimeter are a great suggestion from Darwin.
Best wishes for a mild Dakota winter.

I wish I was up there raking in the cash, but the egg might crack.

Cyndi, what kind of work is your husband doing there? We all do what we must to provide for needs, and going where the work is (and good pay too) makes sense.

I am working on getting a tractor-trailer rig and putting a driver in it up there. I already have the driver, and he's chomping at the bit.
