Applications sought for Penta home construction

 Penta Career Center is accepting applications and plans for the construction project house for the 2017/2018 school year.  Each year, high school students in Penta’s construction programs build a house as part of their career-technical training. Potential home construction projects must be located within a 10- to 15-minute driving distance of the Penta campus, and it must be located within one of Penta’s member school districts. In addition, only projects of 1,800 to 2,500 square feet in size will be considered.  Since 1966, Penta has constructed more than 85 homes in the surrounding communities. Homeowners benefit from the project because they realize substantial cost savings in the construction process.  For more info about contracting with Penta to build a home, call Jon Rife, supervisor of Construction Trades, at 419-661-6358.
