File Description:
These are DEW line sites in northern mainland Canada, to the east of Tuktoyaktuk.

Nicholson Peninsula is 100 miles east of Tuktoyaktuk and was not included in FS9. The peninsula is sometimes more like an island than a peninsula as it is barely connected to the mainland and at times is not connected at all (see the current Gogle Earth!). At the northern end there is another long and narrow gravel bar that is formed by the tide and currents and the gravel runway is on the top of this. It is now officially closed, but is still usable. The annual refuelling and maintenance to the NSW station up on the hills is carried out from a barge that lands tanker trucks onto the shore for the drive up the existing gravel roads that have been there since the early DEW station was established.

Liverpool Bay is 50 miles east of Tuktoyaktuk, up on higher land at around 300 feet ASL. The NWS (there was no previous DEW station at this site) is serviced by helicopter from Tuktoyaktuk or from a barge a mile away on the beach. There is a gravel landing pad on the north side of the station. To answer your question, the three little houses on stilts are actually fuel tanks for the generators, shaped to shed snow.
