During the period 1912 until 1930 there were various propositions made for residences in Glomfjord, family residences for the directors, for the officials and workers, along with residences for single individuals, both officials and workers. Everything was for letting, there was the power plant or smelting plant which built residences that housed its employees. The residential buildings in Glomen, their size, design and features all bear witness of a hierarchal society. The permanent workers' residences were to a large extent localised at Jæra, which as this photo shows, an area that was situated just as far up on the hillside as the official's residences at Hylla, but the topography resulted in separate areas. The residences for the director of the smelting plant and the manager of the power plant were located at the highest point of Glomen.
