Four County Career Center’s Construction Trades students were able to complete 65% of the construction of the 83rd new home as part of their career training before school closure in March.
Curtis Miller, Carpentry instructor, and the senior Carpentry classes did the general construction of the home including exterior finish, interior and drywall finish, for Jake & Erin Wyse in Archbold.
The Wyse home is a single story ranch with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bath, living room, kitchen, sunroom, and a full basement along with a two car garage. The outside of the home is covered in vinyl siding .
Scott Williams, senior Electrical instructor, and his class did the low voltage, data communications, service and finish electrical wiring. Installation of the water supply, and drainage was completed by the senior Mechanical Systems & Piping class with instructor Steve Steingass.
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.
