Building Trades Open House WEB

The public is invited to attend the 46th annual Four County Career Center’s Building Trades Open House on May 15 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. During this past year, 76 high school students at the Career Center have been constructing the 76th 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 Luke and Renee Grime. It is located at 19778 County Road H in Wauseon. The Grime home is a single story ranch with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one half bath, great room, kitchen, and a partial basement along with a three car garage. The outside of the home will be all brick. The junior Carpentry class, under the direction of instructor Matt Dye, assisted with the rough construction. 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 the senior HVAC and Plumbing class with instructor Steve Steingass. In past construction projects, the Interior Design class with instructor Lisa Hall assisted with the painting. This home’s interior has more of a country interior finish of mostly wood. 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.
