SOUTH HEART, N.D. (AP) — The southwest North Dakota oil patch town of South Heart is looking south for housing.
Housing and workers are in high demand in oil country. Developer Butch Kern tells the media that his family's company is ordering homes from South Dakota instead of building them on-site. He says his company has sold more than a dozen homes in South Heart and Dickinson since last June and is waiting on at least a dozen more.
It's not just houses that Madison, S.D.-based Custom Touch Homes is sending north. Dickinson State University has ordered a four-story student housing complex because the school can't find off-campus housing for students. The building is being trucked up from Madison in sections.
