Try someone in Gillette, when I was there houses were being built all over the place. I left in July so I don't know how it is now.

Thanks I Just Checked It Out And It Sounds Like Between The Coal Mine, Methane, And Electrical Plant Coming In The Future Housing Construction Sounds Great. Does Anyone Know What The City And State Require For Liscenses To Build. I Know In Wisconsin I Had To Get A Dwelling Contractors Certification Just To Pull Building Permits This Year.

There are two plants slated for sure, and a third that is a tentative yes. You could get a lot of work up here if you wanted to.... some simple things such as decks and garages are several months out for most people.

There are a couple of places to get lumber.... Home Depot is here and I've seen a builders' supply around here somewhere as well.

You should come up here and help rebuild Humphrys so we can get a decent meal again! They've been closed two or three months past their four month estimate for the repairs because construction crews are backlogged so badly......
