Students from Door County’s four mainland high schools have been busy over the last few weeks building their skills as well as a Sturgeon Bay home. Following some introductory coursework going over safety techniques and learning how to read a blueprint, the students have been busy at the worksite putting their lessons into action beginning at 10:30 a.m. every school day. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman says this year’s students are strong academically but are also getting a unique perspective on where this possible career can take them.
Frostman says with the foundation and concrete walls poured, he expects framing to occur in the coming weeks. The home built by the class will provide an affordable housing option in Sturgeon Bay, course credit for the students, and revenue for future home build projects.
