Two of Door County’s newest residents purchased this past year’s High School Construction Home Monday. The project is sponsored by the Door County Economic Development Corporation with help from the Door County Home Builders Association and NWTC. The four bedroom, three bathroom home was constructed by eleven students from Door County high schools. DCEDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says the program really helps students learn valuable high-wage earning skills while addressing the need for more housing in the area.
Five former students, who also lent assistance the past year, participated in the program while in high school and are currently working in the construction field. Proceeds from the sale will go towards this upcoming year’s project which will be located in the Evening Shadows subdivision in Sturgeon Bay with a planned groundbreaking next Monday.
