Tech Center Foundation House!

Virginia Beach school division to unveil 10th student-built house
By Matt McKinney Featured in The Virginian-Pilot Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Looking for a new, two-story house with hardwood floors, granite countertops and an intercom system?
The city's public schools have just the place for you. The 2,228-square-foot home sits near Dam Neck Road and General Booth Boulevard and is going for $399,000. It comes with an unusual back story: Students built it. Today, the division will unveil its 10th such home, a project that was two years in the making. This is the biggest one yet, school officials said. House-building has been a staple of the division's Technical and Career Education curriculum since 1996, the only program of its kind in South Hampton Roads. Nearly 85 students helped with construction, taking the lead on masonry, plumbing, landscaping, carpentry, wiring and heating and air conditioning. The home at 1909 Evar Place includes four bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, stainless-steel appliances and energy-efficient windows.
Thirty businesses donated materials and oversight for the project. Division officials have already received several inquiries on the home, said Debbie Griffey, coordinator of the Virginia Beach Education Foundation. Proceeds will go to paying for classroom grants. On average, the homes have sold for $385,000, officials said. For the past two years, students worked on the home every school day, weather permitting. They shuttled back and forth by school bus, working 90-minute spurts alongside trade instructors. The division originally planned to present the house in June but had to push back the dedication after setbacks in the plumbing installation, Griffey said. Today's dedication kicks off at noon and will include current and former TCE students. As for the 11th house: The process has already begun. Last week, the division secured a building permit for the lot next door."We're ready to get started," Griffey said.
