After a poor housing market forced the cooperative effort into hiatus, local districts and the Door County Economic Development Corporation are bringing back the popular High School Home Build program. Under the supervision of Sturgeon Bay High School’s Seth Wilson and local contractors, twelve students will work on the single-family home for course credit over the next year. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman says the program is a great way for students to learn some new and valuable skills.
After closing on the land in Sturgeon Bay last Friday, work on the new home is expected to begin during the first few weeks of the school year, which begins September 5.
