SAN ANGELO AREA - Westbound on Arden Rd., slightly past FM 2288, a line of matching rooftops is the first visible sign of the Railhead, one of the sparse temporary housing locations around Tom Green County.

Railhead is another effort by local entrepreneurs to meet the increasing housing demand around San Angelo as the oil industry heats up and lodging at a reasonable price becomes scarce.

Dozens of neatly placed identical tan homes have sprouted from the patch of dirt and gravel about five miles outside San Angelo city limits. John Brinkman, owner of Railhead Rentals, is building a handful of 336-sf lodges until he hits his goal of 163.

Nearly 30 of the fully furnished two-bedroom units are up and ready, with 20 more nearing completion. Each place comes stocked with a full-sized refrigerator and microwave, Wi-Fi connectivity and a TV mounted on the wall.

According to Railhead's website, nightly rates start at $50.
