A future family will have over thirty students and a number of local businesses to thank after the Door County High School Home Construction Program dedicated the newly built house last week. Sturgeon Bay’s Jaeger Brusky, Caleb Diller, Jason Claybaugh, Peter Anschutz, Erik Escalera, and Elijah Heimbecher, Southern Door’s Caleb Buchberger and Jared Delwiche, Sevastopol’s Tyler Dvorak and Eli Zielke, and Gibraltar’s Ben Desotelle have been working on the house since last year as a part of their coursework. Sevastopol’s Landscape and Nursery Design class also got in on the fun by helping design the landscaping. Business and Education Partnership Manager Korey Mallien says it was great to have the local business community take the time to work with the students on building the home.
Sturgeon Bay High School Technology Teacher Seth Wilson says it was amazing to see the growth the students took in both their skills and their attention to detail during the build. The Door County Home Construction Program is looking at potential build sites for next fall and hope to add a few more students to the class.
