Special Student “Women in Trades” Shed Build during this Year’s Showcase of Homes!
This year’s showcase will be featuring a student “Women in Trades” shed build on Saturday, October 8 from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM adjacent to the Kodiak Construction Showcase Home #4 in Mulberry Estates II. The all-female students from the 9th & 10th grades will build six 4’ x 8’ lean-to-sheds, one design, on one lot, in one day, all at the same time! These sheds will be auctioned off during the Showcase of Homes event with the proceeds being donated to our two charities and the Workforce Development Coalition.
The construction trades present nearly limitless opportunities for all students, including those who may not have considered pursuing a construction-related career. Today’s students are discovering what this field has to offer. Come view the work of these student teams from six area high schools: Corinth – Greenwich – Mechanicville – Northville – Schuylerville – Stillwater. Teams will be led by area females in the building industry with the support of local construction professionals. Many thanks to our generous shed sponsors: Career and Technical Education (CTE) – Curtis Lumber – DA Collins Companies – Hoosick Valley Contractors – LeChase Construction – Teakwood Builders – United Brotherhood of Carpenters – Whitbeck Construction – Witt Construction.
In case of inclement weather, the rain date for this exhibition will be Saturday, October 15.
In addition, a new 12’ x 18’ “Cozy Cottage” will be on display at the same location built by BOCES students. The cabin features include wood stove, kitchen nook with base cabinets, eating area at the kitchen counter, pump sink, refrigerator/freezer, electrical outlets throughout, and multiple windows for lots of natural lighting. This will also be available at auction after the Showcase of Homes event.
