The students who participate in the class take time out to construct a home.
This year, the home is being built in the first cul-de-sac on Bill Brown Court, located in Clay View Estates, the exclusive subdivision for the Clay Building Trades program.
The project is in its 36th year of existence. Brown was the first instructor of the program.
Dan Dragon is the current instructor.
Three students from Clay City High School, 16 from Northview and one from Cumberland Academy have worked on the project.
The current home, according to Dragon, has 2,109-square feet of living space, with a two-car attached garage and both a front and back porch under roof.
The exterior of the house is bricked and trimmed out with aluminum soffit and fascia and EIFS (synthetic stucco) on the porch ceilings.
The exterior color theme is a reddish brick with gray trim.
The interior of the house has veneered plaster walls with 9-foot ceilings.
There is a cathedral ceiling in the foyer/great room, and a step ceiling in the formal dining room.
In addition, there is a paneled ceiling in the master bedroom.
The house has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths as well as two walk-in closets.
The kitchen is designed with an open concept, with a breakfast nook, and a computer desk station off to the side.
An open house for the home will take place, but no time or date has been scheduled as of yet.
