High School Seniors Learn Modular Home Construction

WGRZ2 reports from Cheektowaga, New York, just outside Buffalo, that two modular homes built by seniors from area high schools will be auctioned off, and the proceeds will buy supplies for next year’s students to build homes.  Thirty students, all interested in working in the home building field, spent two hours a day for nine months to build one of them, a 1,248 square foot three bedroom, two bath home.  Building trades teacher Chris Burgio worked with the students, and noted that most building trades journeymen are over 50 and there is a need for younger workers.  The other modular home was built by students from the Potter Road Career and Technical Center in West Seneca, NY.  In years past these factory-built homes have sold for as much as $52,000.
