House Factory – 1965 –

Day & Zimmerman-Madway had a contract to build houses for the Minot Air Force Base. The plant was located just east of the North Dakota State Fair Grounds. At the onset over 165 men were employed turning out two houses a day. Plans were to hire an additional 100 men, go to 10 hour days and produce 5 houses per day. The House Factory used specialized cranes capable of lifting the 15 ton houses on to trucks for delivery. The Minot Air Force Base was expected to need about 800 houses. Other prospective clients were Grand Forks AFB and Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls, Montana
