Canyons District's Project House helps students build a strong foundation for the future. Students involved in the project, which requires students in construction-related classes to build a house from the ground up over the course of a school year, are busy at work on this year's project.
Last year's project, which was sold for $366,000, featured hardwood and tile floors, granite countertops, crown molding, a gas fireplace, custom cabinets, air conditioning, ceiling fans, a covered porch with a sound system, landscaping, and energy-efficient appliances. It can be seen at 571 E. Rose Bowl Court in Sandy.
CTEC Principal Ken Spurlock says students from several programs worked on the six-bedroom, three-bathroom house. Those enrolled in construction-management, electrical trades, interior design and horticulture classes, among others, contributed to the completion of the house.
Proceeds from the sale of every Project House help fund the next year's project. Two years ago, the student-built house sold for about $330,000. That house was one of 35 homes featured in the 2012 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/54721266-78/students-smith-homes-parade.html.csp
