The Columbia Basin Student Homebuilders Program invites community and industry partners to an open-house for its first student-built home. The home viewing will be Monday, March 2, from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the home site, 895 W Angus Ct., adjacent to Armand Larive Middle School.

The student workers, program advisor, and district representatives will be present to guide community members and guests through the state-of-the-art 2,000+ square foot home. Participating members of the Northeast Oregon Homebuilders Association and Energy Trust of Oregon will also be present to showcase their involvement in the program.

The students recently completed a partnership with Mr. Insulation Co. of Hermiston to insulate the home, which features a super-efficient “flash and batt” technology. “We are at the perfect stage to showcase the incredible work from our students and NEOHBA partners,” noted Wade Smith, HSD deputy superintendent. “Visitors will be able to see the care, craftsmanship, and top-shelf design and components put into the house before they are covered by the wall, ceiling, and floor coverings.”
