Installing your smoke alarms correctly and making sure they are in working order is an important step to making your home and family safer from fire.

Fire research has demonstrated that with today’s modern furnishings, fires can spread much more rapidly than in the past when more natural materials were used. Because of this, having enough properly located smoke alarms is essential to maximize the chance for occupants to escape the home safely. Research has shown that the risk of dying in reported home structure fires is 55 percent lower in homes with working smoke alarms than in homes with no alarms or none that worked. When present, hardwired smoke alarms operated in 94 percent of the fires considered large enough to trigger a smoke alarm. Battery powered alarms operated 82 percent of the time. Power source issues were the most common factors when smoke alarms failed to operate.

For many years the fire code has required, as a minimum, that smoke alarms be installed inside every sleeping room, in addition to requiring them outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home. Homes built to earlier standards often don’t meet these minimum requirements. Homeowners should recognize that detection needs have changed over the years and take proactive steps make sure that every home has a sufficient complement of smoke alarms.

More information on the installation and maintenance is available at the National Fire Protection Administration’s website: https://www.nfpa.org/Public Education/Staying safe/Safety equipment/Smoke alarms

Save the Date 64th Annual Banquet January 19, 2023 Northern Lights Atrium Heritage Center

In October, NAHB along with industry partners, celebrates Careers in Construction Month. It is a time to recognize contributions made by the professionals working in construction, instill a sense of pride in the industry, increase awareness and foster a positive career image. Ongoing efforts are important to achieving the goal of increasing the number of construction professionals in your area.

So how can you do your part to promote the trades? Here are a couple of ideals:

1. Work with local middle or high schools to host a virtual field trip for students to see your construction site. Camera phones and drones are great tools to capture the attention of any audience. Students ca gather first hand information about what it takes to have a successful career in construction.

2. Take a few minutes to showcase how to use one or more tools or equipment on the jobsite. You can do a live, remote demonstration and/or record your video and post on social media.

3. Work with your local schools to help start the conversation. Volunteer to read and talk about your experience as a builder with the students.

As a part of Careers in Construction Month, NAHB is launching a National Day of Action on social media on Monday, Oct. 4. This will be a great day to use one of the ideas above, an idea of your own, or simply snap a picture and post it on social media.

How will you recognize Careers in Construction? Let's change the perception of what construction jobs look like.

Associate Member Spotlight

Kenzie Meide grew up in a small town in southeastern North Dakota. She graduated college from the University of Minnesota Crookston with a double major in Management and Marketing. Kenzie has worked at Arvig Media as a Media Account Executive for almost five years and recently earned her Master of Science in Business from the University of Mary. Kenzie is the current Chairperson of the Bismarck Mandan Young Professionals Network. She has been married to her husband Caleb for four years and they have an 11 month old baby boy named Maverick, along with a 6 month old Golden Retriever named Talley.

As a full service marketing agency, Arvig Media provides web design, internet marketing, SEO, social media, pay per click, email marketing, content writing, and video creation, along with over 35 different print products that expand across seven Midwest states. Through this variety of marketing tactics, we help businesses large and small that are looking to broadcast their messages more effectively.

Arvig Media does all their design, ad creation, and campaign management internally. None of the services provided are outsourced.

Marketing is all about creating a plan that works for the customers’ goals and budget. It is constantly changing, and it is important to stay up to date on technology.

A typical day for me involves setting up meetings and conducting meetings with business owners, marketing managers, and decision makers to discuss their goals. I work with businesses to come up with a marketing plan to reach their customers. I also attend several marketing events to get Arvig Media’s name out there.

Event planner. It seems like I get roped into planning events for organizations I am a part of as well as family reunions, etc.

I hope to see Arvig Media expand their footprint in this area. Everyone in lakes country in Minnesota knows Arvig since that is where the headquarters are located. We have only been in the Bis Man market for about 10 years even though Arvig has been around for over 70 years.

I went to school for marketing as I’ve always had an interest in the field. I knew I wanted to learn about local businesses and help them succeed.

Arvig is a family owned company and treats their customers as such. We strive to have the best employees so that we can provide exceptional service to our customers.

My favorite part of my job is hearing about how we have helped our customers gain and retain their customers. I’ve been interested in business consulting and my job allows me to combine my marketing knowledge and consultation skills perfectly. I also really like that I get to attend events and networking opportunities as part of my job.

In my spare time I like to golf, go on our boat, camp, pretty much anything outside. I like to watch football and curl in the winter. I love spending time with my family and friends and showing our little guy new things.

I love having bonfires and watching the leaves change. I also like to practice shooting my bow and going bow hunting.

The number of women employed in the construction industry increased to over 1.24 million in 2021, as the construction industry was quickly recovering jobs lost earlier during the pandemic induced recession. Currently, women make up 11% of the construction workforce, up from 9.3% in 2002. As the construction skilled labor shortage remains a key challenge for housing, adding new workers is an important goal of the industry. Bringing additional women into the construction labor force represents a potential opportunity for the future. This post looks at the state of women in the construction industry using labor force statistics from the Current Population Survey (CPS).

During the Great Recession, the number of female workers in construction declined sharply by almost 30% to 807,000 by 2010. From 2010 to 2017, the total slowly expanded to around 970,000 but remained below the peak of pre recession levels. The number of women working in construction grew rapidly in recent years, reaching a new high of 1.24 million in 2021.

Job gains by women have been outpacing overall job gains in construction in recent years. As a result, the share

2022

of women in construction increased 1.9 percentage points from 2017 to 2021. Currently, women make up 11% of the construction workforce, the highest share on record. According to the Current Population Survey, women in the construction are mostly involved in such occupations as office and administrative support, management, business and financial operations. Sales and office occupations employed the largest number of women within the construction industry. For example, women accounted for 71% of workers in sales and office occupations, including 440,000 women in office and administrative support, and 40,000 in sales and related occupations in 2021. Around 460,000 women were engaged in management, professional, and related occupations, taking up only 17% of all management positions

While construction and maintenance occupations account for the largest number of employees in construction and is where additional workers are most needed, women comprised only 3.7% of such occupations. Additional steps should be taken to attract female workers into these high demand occupations. Other groups such as production, transportation, and material moving occupations, and service occupations employed only around 15,000 female workers.

Consumer prices eased in August for the second straight month as declines in energy prices offset increases in food and shelter indexes. Despite this slight improvement, inflation remains above an 8% year over year rate for the sixth straight month. The food index recorded its largest annual gain since May 1979 as all six major grocery store food group indexes increased. Though it is likely that both core PCE and CPI measures of inflation have peaked, the Fed is expected to remain aggressive with respect to tightening monetary policy.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 0.1% in August on a seasonally adjusted basis after being unchanged in July. The price index for a broad set of energy sources fell by 5.0% in August as a decline in gasoline ( 10.6%) offset an increase in electricity (+1.5%) and natural gas index (+3.5%). Excluding the volatile food and energy components, the “core” CPI increased by 0.6% in August, following an increase of 0.3% in July. Meanwhile, the food index increased by 0.8% in August, the smallest monthly increase since December 2021.

Most component indexes continued to rise in August. The indexes for shelter (+0.7%), medical care (+0.7%), motor vehicle insurance (+1.3%), household furnishings and operations (+1.0%), new vehicle (+0.8%) and education (+0.5%) showed sizeable monthly increases in August. Meanwhile, the indexes for airline fares ( 4.6%), used car and trucks ( 0.1%) and communication ( 0.2%) declined in August.

The index for shelter, which makes up more than 40% of the “core” CPI, rose by 0.7% in August, following an increase of 0.5% in July. The indexes for owners’ equivalent rent (OER) and rent of primary residence (RPR) both increased by 0.7% over the month. Monthly increases in OER have averaged 0.7% over the last three months. More cost increases are coming from this category, which

will add to inflationary forces in the months ahead. These higher costs are driven by lack of supply and higher development costs. Higher interest rates will not slow these costs, which means the Fed’s tools are limited in addressing shelter inflation.

During the past twelve months, on a not seasonally adjusted basis, the CPI rose by 8.3% in August, following an 8.5% increase in July. The “core” CPI increased by 6.3% over the past twelve months, following an 5.9% increase in July. The food index rose by 11.4% and the energy index climbed by 23.8% over the past twelve months.

NAHB constructs a “real” rent index to indicate whether inflation in rents is faster or slower than overall inflation. It provides insight into the supply and demand conditions for rental housing. When inflation in rents is rising faster (slower) than overall inflation, the real rent index rises (declines). The real rent index is calculated by dividing the price index for rent by the core CPI (to exclude the volatile food and energy components).

The Real Rent Index rose by 0.2% in August. Over the first eight months of 2022, the monthly change of the Real Rent Index increased by 0.1%, on average.

The most recent Home Building Geography Index (HBGI) shows that home building activities have shifted to low density and low cost markets since the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic. The market share for single family constructions in large metro core and inner suburbs has declined from 44.5% to 41.6% from the 4th quarter of 2019 (pre COVID), to the 2nd quarter of 2022.

Housing demand has shifted from these higher density core areas to low density markets, where homes are larger and more affordable. At the beginning of the pandemic, homebuyers desired more personal space for the work from home and remote learning models. Declines in housing affordability in high cost and highly regulated markets also drove homebuyers to low density outer markets, which have a larger share of affordable homes.

NAHB’s HBGI shows that single family home building in outer counties in large and medium sized metros has expanded to a 19% market share in the 2nd quarter of 2022 from 17.4% in the pre COVID period. Meanwhile, the market share of new single family constructions in rural areas increased from 9.4% to 10.4%.

Similar decentralizing trends also

hold for multifamily home building from the 4th quarter of 2019 to the 2nd quarter of 2022. This market share increased from 17.4% to 19% in large and small metro outer markets and inched up from 28.8% to 29% in small metro core counties. In contrast, the market share slipped from 44.5% to 41.6% in large metro core and inner suburbs.
