’ Happy 4th of July -- Summer has officially arrived! The temperatures are warm, and we’re as busy as ever. I hope all of you are enjoying the summer to the full extent and spending as much time as possible with family!!

The BMHBA’s 35th Annual PAC golf tournament is quickly approaching. In case you have missed past messages and emails, the event will be held on July 12 th at Hawktree Golf Course in Bismarck. I’m very confident this will be the best tournament to date! This is a very fun event and is a great place to catch up with peers from our industry amongst others. Thanks to Dawn, Brittney, the golf committee, and our sponsors that all contribute to putting on a great event. Excited to see everyone there! Another event that members participated in last month was the election. The BMHBA supported several candidates with PAC contributions. Congratulation to the winners and a reminder that while the elections are over, we continue to encourage you to make contributions to BUILD-PAC and NDAB-PAC. Campaigning is expensive, and your contributions are one way to help influence the outcome of the election. The other way is by exercising your right to vote! As always, if you want to know how you can be more involved in the association or have suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me or any of the board members.

Summer is a great time of year to install a new swimming pool, hot tub, or spa. The City of Bismarck, Community Development Department - Building Inspections Division, would like to remind you that most communities have adopted building and zoning requirements for swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas to ensure the safety of your family, friends, and neighbors. Prior to installing a swimming pool, hot tub, or spa it is important to check with your local building inspections division to determine if permits are required, if there are any zoning regulations specific to your property, and what safety requirements need to be considered when designing your project.

seventy-two inches tall or provided with a powered safety cover that is listed and labeled as compliant with ASTM F1346. Please remember that for these safety measures to protect your family, friends, and neighbors they must be installed properly and maintained in good working order. These safety measures are not a substitute for supervising those that are using a pool.

If your property is in the City of Bismarck or City of Bismarck ETA and you have questions about the installation of a pool, hot tub, or spa at your residence, please contact For example, in the City of Bismarck and City of Bismarck the City of Bismarck Building Inspections Division at 355Extra Territorial Area (ETA), swimming pools with a water 1465 or visit the City-County Office Building at 221 N. 5th depth of greater than twenty-four inches must be enclosed Street during office hours; Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. on all sides with a barrier, fence, or wall that is at least

The Mandan School Board approved a guaranteed maximum price of $94,531,123 to build the new Mandan High School with Northwest Contracting. Construction will begin soon, and the school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2024.

including a successful Career & Technical Education (CTE) Grant, proceeds from the sale of property surrounding both Lakewood Elementary and the new Mandan High School and public-private partnerships and sponsorship opportunities.

In April 2021, Mandan voters approved an $84 million bond referendum to build a new high school and a new elementary school in the Lakewood area or just east of the Mandan Walmart near the Starion Sports Complex. Construction on Lakewood Elementary has already begun, and it will open for students in the fall of 2023.

Due to budget limitations, the school board was unable to accept an alternate bid to build a swimming pool attached to the new high school. The pool is designed and can be added at a later date when funding is available. The school district, along with the Mandan Park District, plans to continue to operate the current pool located in the Brave Center until funding for a new pool can be secured.

“While the cost of the buildings has increased substantially over the last year, due to inflation, taxpayers can still expect to pay the $99.00 per $100,000 of property they own,” said Mandan School Board President, Sheldon Wolf. “This was the estimate that was shared by school officials during the school referendum informational meetings last year.” Mandan school officials say the additional dollars needed to build the two schools will come from a variety of sources

The current Mandan High School will be demolished once the students have transitioned to the new high school in the 2024-25 school year, and the site may be sold for redevelopment. The Brave Center will remain and continue to be the central office for the district. The All-Season’s Arena, owned by the park district, will also remain operational.

As I write this article, I’m in Washington, DC watching Federal Reserve Chair Powell give his announcement of the Reserve’s largest and most aggressive rate hike since 1994 on the nearest television. I share the same fear that you do: what will this do to our industry? What will our next year in the homebuilding industry look like? What do we have to do to be successful? At the same time, I’m reminded of our recent North Dakota Primary election. A substantial number of incumbents were challenged for their party endorsements and a noteworthy amount won those races. Combine those candidates with the amount of new candidates we have running and 2023 will could see a significantly new Legislature.

KAYLA PULVERMACHER NDAB CEO

MIKE JANGULA 2022 NDAB PRESIDENT

It is imperative that your Building Association be involved in the legislative process on all fronts, and current events demonstrate that. Whether it be working to lessen burdensome regulations, advocating for legislation that will benefit the building industry or helping to elect pro-housing candidates, having your voice represented can only help to improve your business. Think of it this way: How often do you get to sit down with your members of Congress and tell them about your experiences as a builder? As a member, you have the opportunity to do that. Being an active member of your professional organization just makes good business sense. Kayla Pulvermacher, NDAB CEO Mike Jangula, 2022 NDAB President

Builder Member Spotlight

I'm Casey Olheiser, the owner of Legendary Homes. I grew up on a farm near New England, North Dakota, where I worked for my dad, Stan - a carpenter in the Dickinson area. Building and being involved in the construction of homes has always been a passion of mine. In 2013, I decided to pursue that passion and began creating custom, unique homes for the Bismarck-Mandan and surrounding communities. I am married to my wife Lacey & we have 3-year-old twins Greyson & Kaia. WHAT IS AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW? Legendary Homes is a little bit of a family affair you could say. My parents moved to Bismarck a few years ago. They are both involved in the company, with my dad being my right-hand man. I’m very lucky to have someone on my team with the skill and knowledge that he has. My mom does a lot of cleaning, painting, delivering materials and most importantly helps out with my kids. There is no 8-5 in this industry so when I have to work really early or late, she is there to help with the kids. I would not be able to run this company without them. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEONE JUST ENTERING THIS INDUSTRY? It’s stressful and challenging but extremely rewarding. Set goals and when you reach your goals, set higher ones. WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE FOR YOU? There is no such thing as a “typical day” for me. Every day presents something different whether that’s due to new challenges or weather. It keeps it interesting and it’s why I enjoy the work I do. IF I WEREN’T A HOME BUILDER, I’D BE A … Hunting guide in the mountains somewhere off the grid. WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO SEE LEGENDARY HOMES ACCOMPLISH IN THE COMING YEARS? I plan to keep growing our team and take on larger and more challenging projects. We have been working on some light commercial work lately, and I can see our company expanding into more of a commercial and residential mixed workload.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO ENTER THIS INDUSTRY? My dad. He was a carpenter and contractor in Dickinson for over 20 years. I grew up helping him on the job sites and would often sweep out the houses he framed. He taught me about work ethic and how to be a carpenter. After realizing the satisfaction you get from seeing a project start from a design on a piece of paper to a beautiful new home, I knew I had to be a part of this industry. WHAT MAKES YOUR BUSINESS UNIQUE FROM OTHER BUILDERS IN THE AREA? We’ve built a team of hard-working carpenters that can do it all. From framing, siding, decks, custom woodwork, and even landscaping. It’s nice to keep a lot of this work in-house with most of our builds. It allows me to have some flexibility and a little more control over my schedule. We are more of a construction company than just a home builder. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB? My favorite part would be seeing the finished project whether it’s a new deck or a new forever home for a family. Knowing and hearing how happy the clients are after we built them something makes it all worth it. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME? Spending time with my family, hunting and traveling. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE SUMMER SEASON? It’s a nice break from building in the elements all winter. All the projects we spent the last few months designing, can now begin. I try to enjoy those nice days, summer seems to go by fast so we try to make the best of it. LINKS Website: http://www.legendaryhomesnd.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/legendaryhomesnd

Supply chain issues and pricing challenges are increasingly driving builders, remodelers and home owners to seek out and use alternative products. Many are trying new products simply out of necessity because the products they used in the past are no longer on the shelves

manufacturers and marketers can anticipate in the years ahead, Farnsworth and Hudson will lead back-toback presentations during the upcoming Leading Suppliers Council (LSC) “Connections” meeting. The presentations will take place June 16 during the NAHB Spring Leadership Meetings.

“For a manufacturer, that’s either exciting or scary, depending on their position in the market,” said Grant Farnsworth, president of the Farnsworth Group, a company that provides building product manufacturers and suppliers with customized research on customers, products and brands. “Purchasers are frequently discovering new channels and/or products that they are very satisfied with and will want to use again.”

Hudson will kick it off with “How the Pandemic Changed Remodeling and Where the Industry is Going from Here.” He will discuss which sizes of households are likely to seek certain products and why. He will also outline growth opportunities that suppliers could take advantage of and specific characteristics of the market that are not yet widely known.

And it’s not just availability that’s causing shifts in the marketplace. Evolving home owner demographics – particularly household size — make a significant impact when it comes to identifying the project scope the desired types of products. “An earlier assumption was that age and income were the most influential factors in determining project parameters,” said Ed Hudson, director of market research at Home Innovation Research Labs. “However, the latest research indicates that’s not the case.” To provide a deeper analysis of how purchasing behaviors have shifted in recent years and what

Farnsworth’s portion of the meeting, “Shifting DIY and Contractor Product Purchase Behaviors,” will examine the major influencers among both building professionals and home owners on where, when, how and why they make their buying decisions. Specifically, Farnsworth will look at how to capitalize on the online shopping segment, which accelerated during the pandemic and is likely to keep growing long term. “For the past two years, we’ve been ‘putting out fires’ because of limited availability; but that’s not going to continue forever,” Farnsworth said. “So there’s a need to be more strategic and get back to understanding the intricate behaviors of pros and DIYers because the market is evolving.”


At a meeting hosted by NAHB and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), NAHB Chairman Jerry Konter set the tone for the conversation by noting that “housing affordability is the top priority of NAHB members, and we feel it should be the top priority of lawmakers and government officials.” HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge echoed Konter’s remarks. “We need to rethink housing," said Secretary Fudge. “If we do not address the housing crisis right now, we all will have failed.” The meeting, held at the National Building Museum in Washington, served as a kickoff event for the Innovative Housing Showcase a three-day event on the National Mall featuring new building technologies and housing solutions to make housing more innovative, resilient and affordable for American families. This event featured a series of panels on how innovative building technology can bend the cost curve, and what public and private sectors can do to spur the adoption of this technology. Before the first panel, an economic presentation by NAHB Chief Economist Rob Dietz and the National Multifamily Housing Council VP of Research Caitlin Sugrue Walter laid bare the issues facing the U.S. housing environment. “We have a persistent housing deficit in the country and the costs to build are going up,” noted Dietz. “The time to address these issues is now, and we need to address them with market solutions and government policy changes.”

agreed that a focus on retrofitting existing homes would do much more for overall building energy efficiency than increasing requirements on new homes. He also noted that modular building practices are just coming into maturity in the U.S. after enjoying decades of success overseas. If more builders would take risks and try new technologies, the industry could rapidly advance. NAHB First Vice Chair Alicia Huey moderated the next panel with newly confirmed Federal Housing Administration Commissioner Julia Gordon and Dr. Rodney Harrell from AARP. Commissioner Gordon noted that it is “the duty of the federal government to move quickly and make sure regulations are updated for new developments in home building, like accessory dwelling units.” Harrell said that his group is seeing a disconnect between what people are asking for today compared to what demands homeowners will being making of their homes in the future, especially around universal design. He noted that in addition to cooperation between government and industry, there needs to be a lot more public education on the issues. Public pushback, especially in the form of NIMBYism, was a common theme across the panels. Getting the public to understand that the housing affordability crisis is tied to antiquated ideas about where and what type of housing is allowed to be built is a key challenge to delivering solutions.

The first panel, moderated by Jenny Schuetz of the Brookings Institute, focused on incorporating innovative building techniques into common practice. Joan Glickman, Program Manager, Residential Buildings at the U.S. Department of Energy, touted some of the work her agency has done through its Advanced Building Construction The Innovative Housing Showcase opened Friday, June initiative, including a recent award of $33 million for 10 on the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. The retrofitting homes in real-world trials. event featured exhibitors and homes highlighting the technology that will be used to build the homes of the Michael Parker, with home builder Ivory Homes in Utah, future.


'Missing middle' construction, which saw disappointing growth in 2021, continued its lackluster trend in the first quarter of 2022. The missing middle housing sector includes townhouses, duplexes and other small multifamily properties. Despite a hint of accelerated construction in March 2022, this class of multifamily missing middle was flat to start the year. For the first quarter of 2022, there were just 4,000 2to 4-unit housing unit construction starts. That’s even with the first quarter of 2021 and actually finds that the trailing four-quarter period was 7% lower than the year prior. As a share of all multifamily production, 2- to 4-unit development is only 3.2% of the total. In contrast, from 2000 to 2010, such home construction made up a little less than 11% of total multifamily construction. Construction of the missing middle has clearly lagged during the post-Great Recession period.

The count of open construction jobs jumped to a record -high 449,000 unfilled positions in April, according to the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is the highest measure in the history of the data series (going back to late 2000). The construction labor market remains tight, as the industry sees a rising number of job openings year-overyear. The housing market remains underbuilt and requires additional labor, lots, and lumber and building materials to add inventory. However, the market is now slowing due to higher interest rates and this will likely be reflected in construction labor market data in the months ahead. Construction sector layoffs remained low at a 1.5% rate in April. In April 2020, the layoff rate was 10.8%. Since that time however, the sector layoff rate has been below 3%,

with the exception of February 2021 due to weather effects. The rate trended lower in 2021 due to the skilled labor shortage and remains low in 2022 as the market remains tight. The job openings rate in construction remained elevated at 5.6% in April, with 449,000 open positions in the sector. This is significantly higher than the 329,000 count recorded a year ago.
