Just an idea...
$15,000 Housing Bonus**

Want to move to Perham but can't find housing?  You're not the first!  The fact is, Perham is awesome.  A lot of people want to live and work here but can't find an affordable place to live.  Well, we might have a solution for you.

We will contribute up to $15,000 in cash or trade towards the construction of your own home.  Here's how it works:

1.  Get hired by us.

2. Find temporary housing; where you'll live until your house is built.

3. For every year you work with us, we'll contribute $5,000 in cash, labor, and/or materials towards the construction of your home; up to a maximum of $15,000 after three years.


This is just a summary, we'll have a formal contract that spells it out**.  You may also be able to combine this with The Big Build from Otter Tail County for up to $30,000 towards your new home.  Every bit helps.


Troy & Megan, this is just an idea.  Before doing something like this you should definitely run it past your attorney and accountant!
