Clay County residents will have the chance to check out the work of students in the Clay Community Schools Building and Trades program this weekend.

The program will conduct its annual open house event Sunday, June 10, from 1-5 p.m., at its latest home, which sits at 1746 E. Bill Brown Ct., in Clay View Estates (located on East Pinckley Street, Brazil).

For 19 years, Building and Trades instructor Dan Dragon has led the students in the program. Each year, the students construct a home at the housing addition.

This year, 13 students took part in the program.

"We did this house with about half the students (than in the past)," Dragon said. "They worked real hard."

The home to be shown Sunday includes three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a two-car garage.

Upon walking into the home, one will see an open concept, with the living room area, kitchen and dining area all visible. Dragon called it a "great room effect."

In addition, he said the master bedroom bathroom has dual vanities and includes a walk-in closet.

There are cathedral doorways throughout the 1,770-square-foot home. Dragon also said the students used a "tray ceiling effect" in the 15-by-16 master bedroom.

There is also a laundry room along with a front and back porch.

The house sits in Bill Brown Court and is the eighth home along the cul-de-sac. Brown was the first instructor of the course, which was established in 1974.

Dragon said the home completes the cul-de-sac.

The Building and Trades Advisory Board will also be on hand during the open house. Advisory Board member Cliff Romas will handle the sale of the home. Anyone interested in purchasing the home should contact Romas at 812-239-2919.

The cabinets look lovely and the description of the house seems very nice, but I've noticed a dearth of electrical outlets in the kitchen along the counter. Should be one on every center for convenience. Thank you.
