Student Contractors

By  | 

After being on the market for just one day, a house built by students is sold.

Before letting the new owner move in, the Career Center's Construction Class held an Open House to show it off. This is the ninth house Construction Trade Students have built, but only the second two story house they've built. Students build each home from the ground up, but the plumbing and electrical work is done by professionals.

The house sold for 260 thousand dollars. District 51 has been running this construction program since 1998. The students build one house per school year.
