About Us

From the Bakken Oil Fields in 2015 to the Village of Gagetown to the house where Marian was born..

After experiencing the flooding of 2018, Marian and Bruce Rebuild with future events in mind.
In 2017 the spring freshet left water in the basement but did not come inside Lang House.
2018 – Lang House in the WORST flood in the St. John River History at 6.8m beating the 1973 record of 6.4m.
Bruce cleaning up after the 2019 flood. As designed, the water came in and the water went out (WiWo).

Bruce and Marian Langhus moved from Watford City, North Dakota in 2015 to take over the operation of a bed and breakfast (Step-A-Side) in the Village of Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada.

Langhuses not only redesigned the structure for water to come in and out they made huge efforts to educate the public on their WiWo (water in, water out) methodology. CTV followed their progress, Marian was interviewed on the CBC, and the hosted an open house associated with the 2019 High and Dry Festival in the Village of Gagetown. A brochure describing every aspect to the WiWo build is found here.

If you want to learn about flood mitigation, these are the folks to teach you! CTV Atlantic has interviewed Marian and Bruce many times as they followed them through the flooding of the St. John River (and Gagetown Creek) from 2017-2020. Use their search engine to find many clips produced over the last few years.
