High school’s home-building program gains interest

KSAL StaffJune 16, 2014

The work of some northeast Kansas high school students has gotten the attention of a developer and at least one family that wants to buy houses built by their school’s construction tech class.

Chapman High School teacher Josh Schlesener says it’s a compliment that homes built by his students are in high demand, and it would be great to have the materials for the projects paid for up front.

But none of that changes the fact that his students can build only one house a year.

The Chapman School Board is considering requests to pre-purchase the homes, including from a local developer that wants to buy up to 12 of them. The Abilene Reflector-Chronicle reports last year’s house was auctioned off for just over $60,000.
