As I write this message the Parade of Homes is three short days away. From several conversations with local builders, it sounds like many of us were able to pull our homes together and put on another great event. We might have had a refrigerator, cabinet, or tile missing here and there, but what do you do! If you are reading this, I hope you enjoyed the Parade and felt it was a success whether you are a builder, subcontractor, supplier, or spectator. Dawn will have some statistics from the event at our Fall Mixer and Board Elections. Speaking of the Fall Mixer and Board Elections, that event is happening on Thursday October 21, 2021. This year we are changing up the venue and it will be held at Lady J’s Club and Catering located on the south end of Tom O’Leary golf course. Along with Parade highlights we will be voting for new GREG MEIDINGER Board members with terms beginning January 1, 2022. Next year we have 2021 BMHBA PRESIDENT two builder seats opening that need to be filled. As of the writing of this article, we have two builders that have accepted nominations by their peers. If any of you have any interest or know of a builder that would have interest in running for a Board position, please submit their name(s) to Dawn. I have learned firsthand being involved has many benefits. From being more in tune to what is happening in our industry to making invaluable connections and relationships with your peers. It truly does make a difference and our current Board is comprised of some pretty great individuals. Yes, we work, but we also have quite a few laughs.

In September, Dawn and Brittney created the BMHBA Birthday Club. If you submit your birthday to either Dawn or Brittney, they will draw a winner each month and deliver a box of donuts to their office. In addition, each member will receive a message from the BMHBA on their birthday. This is a way to show our appreciation to our members and give someone a box of delicious donuts each month. Just a reminder, if you want to become more involved, please reach out to the BMHBA office and learn more about what committees we have and how you can serve. We are always looking for new ideas and without volunteers we wouldn’t be able to serve our members. I hope you all enjoy fall and whatever activities that brings your way!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE BMHBA? 22 years

materials with so many more options.

WHERE DO YOU WORK AND WHAT IS YOUR JOB TITLE? Vice President at Investcore and Broker Associate at Trademark Realty HOW HAS THE BUILDING INDUSTRY CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST JOINED THE ASSOCIATION? The industry has changed in so many ways. I think a couple that stick out are for sure are technology, from tracking job progress and selections with software to home automation. Another one is home building

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ON THE BOARD? I started on the board at the beginning of 2019. WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A MEMBER OF THE BMHBA? I would have to say the opportunity to network and get to know individuals and learn more about what is happening in our great community and industry.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR FREE TIME? I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, golfing and watching my kids’ sporting events.

Knife River is a full service aggregate-based construction company, providing ready-mix concrete aggregate sales and delivery and concrete construction services. We provide services throughout North Dakota for public, private and commercial construction projects.

September 13-17 was National Professional Women in Building Week. Our Bismarck Mandan PWB council celebrated this with a master bedroom makeover giveaway. Abby Krebs was announced as the winner in August and our PWB council worked diligently for 2 weeks to complete the project. Here are some photos of the bedroom remodel in progress and the final reveal photos!




BY BERNADETTE HOUSER CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER, CITY OF BISMARCK UTILITY OPERATIONS Water meters. Not something that is thought about too often. Until something happens. No water – water coming from somewhere – usually something not so nice. Then the search is on. Where is that darn thing? In a crawl space? Behind a furnace? Can we even find it? When designing and building a home, think about how important it is to the home owner to know where the water meter is and to know it is accessible when it needs to be worked on. Having the water meter installed 12” above the floor, in a space that is easily accessible – which is not behind a water heater, or in a crawl space, or in a wall, under a cabinet or any of the wasted space parts of a home – will be a benefit to the eventual owner of that house. If the water meter would have a problem and no one can figure out where it is, what then? When determining where the water line will come in to the home, make sure the water line comes up where the water meter will be located in the mechanical room, can be set in a horizontal position a minimum of 12” above the floor, with enough room from the wall so the register will be facing up to ensure the register can be read and worked on if necessary. Protect it from freezing. This is very important in this cold climate. Avoid an installation near a concrete basement wall in a room with minimal heat. As the weather gets colder, the concrete gets colder and the water gets colder…. see where I’m going with this? The water in the line to the water meter can freeze causing the water meter to freeze and break and then there’s a mess! If the water meter breaks the homeowner will be extremely thankful if that water meter is located near a floor drain. Better to have that water go down a nearby drain rather than all over the floors.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF A GOOD WATER METER INSTALLATION.

Have enough room so the plumber can set the water meter in a solid manner. When water passes through the water meter, if the water meter is not securely set, the water meter will move. The more the water meter moves the more chance of problems with the fittings. No moving water meter and the connection to the fittings remains tight. If you have any questions regarding water meters or water meter placement, we are happy to help. Just contact us – City of Bismarck Public Works, Utility Operations at (701) 355-1700 Option 1. Ask to speak to a Field Representative and we will get your questions answered. Remember – our Field Representatives will be living with the water meter that is in the house as long as the house is standing.

As NAHBNow reported previously, House Democrats are working to draft a $3.5 trillion Build Back Better plan that includes onerous tax hikes of $2 trillion and aggressive energy efficiency requirements in model building energy codes that would harm housing affordability. This ambitious plan, which focuses on what the White House refers to as “human infrastructure,” also contains several other elements of interest to the housing community. Affordable Housing Provisions House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) seeks to include portions of the Housing is Infrastructure Act of 2021 into the broader Build Back Better legislative package.

The base text contains: • $300 billion in affordable housing funding, including $34.77

• • •

• •

billion for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program, $75 billion for Housing Choice Vouchers and $15 billion for new Project Based Section 8 contracts. $4.8 billion for rural multifamily housing. $8.5 billion for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. $4.5 billion for NAHB-supported CDBG competitive grants that would require local jurisdictions to eliminate impact fees and restrictive zoning requirements. $200 million in grant funding through the Department of Agriculture’s Sections 502, 504 and 523 programs to help lowincome home owners in rural areas purchase, repair, upgrade and preserve modest, affordable homes, including manufactured homes. $50 million to support sweat equity and volunteer-based homeownership programs for low-income households. $770 million for fair housing initiatives.

The chairwoman’s legislation would also forgive the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) debt and includes $3 billion for flood mapping and risk analysis. It also provides $1 billion to launch a subsidy program to help low- and moderate-income households buy flood insurance and close the coverage gap that leaves poorer households and communities more vulnerable to flood damage. The package also provides first-time, first-generation home buyers with the greater of $20,000 or 10% of the purchase price of an eligible home, including down payment costs, closing costs and costs to reduce the rates of interest.

Labor/Immigration Provisions The House Education and Labor Committee is proposing dramatic increases in monetary penalties for employers who violate the National Labor Relations Act with unfair labor practices. These proposed fine increases are so large that NAHB believes businesses facing fines may be forced to close. For example, the civil fees for each willful violation would go from a maximum of $7,000 to $700,000, and the minimum fee would jump from $5,000 to $500,000. As proposed, these civil penalties are excessive. NAHB is urging Congress to reassess these penalties. On a positive note, the bill also includes funding investments for career technical education as well as funding for JobCorps and Youthbuild. NAHB supports efforts to provide additional funding for these programs because such support will help provide good jobs for new workers and help address labor shortages in various industries including residential construction. The House Judiciary Committee’s proposed reconciliation legislation could allow four groups of immigrants to become permanent U.S. residents — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) also known as “Dreamers” (undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and who grew up knowing America as their only home); essential workers; temporary protected status (TPS) individuals (nationals of specifically designated countries that are confronting an ongoing armed conflict, environmental disaster, or extraordinary and temporary conditions); and deferred enforcement departure (DED) individuals.

Immigrants are an essential part of the construction industry workforce. TPS beneficiaries and DACA participants with legal work authorization have helped to fill part of the construction industry’s growing labor gap. As construction was designated as an essential industry by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, our industry will also benefit from essential workers becoming permanent U.S. residents. Separately, the reconciliation package would also provide additional funds for forestry management/wildfire prevention efforts.

The Waters bill also provides $500 million to subsidize 20year mortgages for first-generation home buyers in order to It also includes investments in core and traditional accelerate home equity. It also includes $100 million for HUD transportation and infrastructure programs that NAHB to carry out a pilot program to expand small-dollar lending supports because thriving real estate markets depend on options to everyday home buyers. high-quality, accessible and efficient infrastructure.


Although the recent drop in softwood lumber prices since mid-May is helping bring costs down (after having driven them up drastically earlier in the year), the decline has been offset by large increases in the prices of several other building material products. The prices of these 10 have increased the most thus far in 2021, and all are up at least 30%: • Steel mill products • Building paper and building board mill products • Asphalt • Plastic water pipe • Fertilizer materials • Laminated veneer lumber • Thermoplastic resins and plastics materials • Structural metal joists and concrete reinforcing bars • Wood window and door frames • Copper pipe and tube

Over the first seven months of 2021, the majority of these products’ prices have increased many times more than they did in 2020. The price change of steel mill products is the most glaring example, up 81.3% year to date following a 2020 increase of 11.1%. The prices of a subset of building materials were stable in 2020 but have seen substantial price increases in 2021. Some building materials and inputs to building materials have seen especially acute increases over the last three months. Of the goods analyzed here, nine experienced price increases exceeding 20% between April

and July: • Laminated veneer lumber • Building paper & building board mill products • Fertilizer materials • Plastic water pipe • Fabricated structural metal • Other engineered structural wood members • Copper pipe and tube • Steel mill products • Aluminum base scrap
