Building Trades Open House

The public is invited to attend the 54th annual Four County Career Center’s Building Trades Open House on May 19 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.  During this past year, 100 high school students at the Career Center have assisted with the construction of the 84th new home as part of their career training. 

Curtis Miller, Carpentry instructor, and the senior Carpentry classes did the general construction of the home including exterior finish, interior, and drywall finish, for Phil Rupp.  It is located at 328 Miller Avenue in Archbold.

The Rupp home is a single story ranch with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, great room, kitchen, and a full basement along with a two car garage.  The outside of the home is covered in stone and vinyl siding .

Scott Williams, senior Electrical instructor, and his class did the low voltage, data communications, service and finish electrical wiring for the home.  Installation of the water supply, drainage, and inside plumbing was done by the senior Mechanical Systems & Piping class with instructor Steve Steingass.  The Interior Design students and their instructor, Lisa Hall, painted the interior walls and ceilings.

Students at the Career Center build one house each school year.  The home building project is part of the high school curriculum in the Construction Trades programs.
