2018 Construction Technology Students Show the Fruits of their Labor

May 28, 2018

The 2018 Construction Technology house build is finished and this past weekend an open house was held at the home located at 2475 Hillcrest in Plymouth.

Instructor Craig Schoof said the 3,300 square foot home is priced at $280,000. Schoof is in his second year of teaching the Construction Trades program, part of the North Central Area Vocational Cooperative (NCAVC), which includes ten nearby school corporations.

Prior to working in this role, he was self-employed as a residential builder and built homes throughout the Marshall and surrounding counties. He said both years he has looked forward to teaching his students everything he knows about building a house. Schoof and his students construct one house each year from the ground up.

The Construction Technology program is taught twice a day and is designed to teach students the skills needed to construct residential homes. It is also designed to provide training toward an occupation that students could follow after graduation such as: carpenter, electrician, mason, cement finisher, plumber, sheet metal worker, roofer, painter, drywall hanger, drywall finisher, or landscape worker.

Students who are enrolled in the course attend regular classes part of the school day and then they report to the job site for the remainder of the day. Students who attend schools within the NCAVC can sign up for Construction Trades I or Construction Trades II by talking to their school’s counselor. For more information about the program, visit

If you are interested in purchasing the home you can contact any local realtor to set up a tour.
