KODIAK (AP) -- Four recycled modular housing units have been delivered to a site near the Kodiak launch complex.
The units will be used to house up to 54 people at a time. They arrived by barge last week.
Once the two-story units are put together, they'll form a building 240 feet long and 40 feet wide.
While the facility was designed for workers who come to Kodiak to launch rockets, regular tourists can rent them as well. They're a mile and a half from the launch site on a five-acre site leased from a game ranch.
The recycled units have already been used at the Red Dog mine and in Prince William Sound. But they were refurbished in Seattle. The units will get slanted roofs and wooden siding.
They'll be painted green and brown, and landscaped to blend in with the Kodiak environment.
