Clustered north of the mess hall are additional bunkhouses. The shed-roofed one was built to house twelve men in three rooms, each 12 feet by 16 feet. The three exterior doors are similar in arrangement to the ATCO trailers popular during pipeline construction days in the 1970s. The other three bunkhouses were built to house sixteen men. They have center doors, with four rooms opening off the center hall. Both the twelve-and sixteen-man bunkhouses are covered with corrugated metal, a prefabricated building material.
