ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAU) – Another Wausau area family will be moving into a Habitat for Humanity home this weekend, this time in Rothschild.
This home was built by the students at DC Everest High School in a partnership with Habitat. This is the 51st home built by the organization since it started, and director Berland Meyer says the partnership has done a lot for the group. “It's helped us complete homes we otherwise might not have been able to, and get more families into their own homes.”
The home is a 1,458 square foot ranch style house with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Eighteen DC Everest students under the direction of teacher Chad Pernsteiner spent all semester working on the house as a project for the Tech Ed department. Meyer says those students will come away with skills that will prepare them for a working future.
The new owners of the home will be getting their keys at a ceremony Sunday morning. They put in their 300 hours of 'sweat equity' working to clear the property and get it ready for the move in.
The ceremony starts at Sunday at 12:30. The home is located at 7812 Volkman Street in Rothschild.
