The Student Home Build program has kicked off their 13th year with the construction of a Cloverdale Masters floor plan at Reid’s Heritage Homes’ Westminster Highlands community in Fergus. The program consists of 19 students this year.
The Student Home Build program is a partnership between Reid’s Heritage Homes and the Wellington Catholic District Schoolboard (WCDSB) that provides high school students with the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in the trades associated with homebuilding. The class is on site for three credits, working for approximately four hours per day. The first two weeks of the semester take place in-class for safety training, blueprint reading and skills with tools.
The home will be taken to the framing stage and a celebration ceremony will be held in mid-June.
