Modular Home Built by High School Students

Students at Mountain View and Evergreen High Schools in Clark County, Washington collaborated to build a modular home for Habitat for Humanity that a single-mother and her two sons will move into in September. Each school literally built half of the 1,100 square foot home, and the students will receive class credit, plus the hands-on experience in construction. As thecolumbian informs MHProNews, Habitat volunteers finished up the home because students were unable to complete the project before the summer break. “This was the first year, so there was a learning curve,” said Kris Cowan, the Evergreen Habitat for Humanity construction manager. “Next year, we will have it ready to move at the end of the (school) year.”
