(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – The most recent Buckeye Career Center student-built “Buckeye House sells at public auction for $278,000 to
Gerald and Dawn Chenevey.
The home sold on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. The Buckeye Career Center Board of Education accepted the offer at its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday evening. The three-bedroom ranch includes two full baths and one partial bath.
The layout features an open kitchen/great room with custom-built cabinetry, quartz countertops, a tiled fireplace, and a walk-in kitchen pantry. The master suite has its own private bath and 9ft by 8ft walk-in closet.
The home features a first-floor laundry area and office, off the front entrance. Outside, a stone walkway leads to a front concrete porch and a raised-stone block patio highlights the back yard.
Construction of this house began in August 2017. Buckeye students in Construction Technology, Energy Operations, Masonry, Landscaping, HVAC-R, and Electrical Systems Technology had a role in building the house. Buckeye officials say the construction project provides real-world training for students hoping to enter the construction field.
“The Buckeye House gives on-the-job experience for our students through the entire building process,” said Assistant Principal Trent Edie. “It’s really a great learning sample for our students.”
Construction of the next Buckeye House will begin during the 2019-2020 school year.
