Beyond the Sheetrock: Tour a student-built home on January 14

Every year, the Career and Technical Education students at Manchester School of Technology build a house. Every year, that house is put on the market for anyone in the community to buy. Last year’s three-bedroom, three-bathroom home sold for $325,000! Proceeds from the sale go back into the program.

Supervised by their professional instructors in the carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC trades, the students do nearly 100% of the work it takes to build the house. You are invited to see this year’s building in progress. The walls inside have not yet been sheetrocked, so visitors will have the opportunity to see all the plumbing and electrical work. The house is located on a street where about two dozen other MST homes have been built over the years.

Current high school sophomores from Manchester, Londonderry, Bedford, and Goffstown interested in enrolling in MST’s two-year CTE program to learn those skills are encouraged to attend this special open house, ask questions, and see what can be accomplished by students in one school year.
