Home for sale
The advanced building and construction students at Floyd D. Johnson Technology Center are looking for a family for their home.
The students built a 1,430 square foot house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms for their senior project, but need to sell it so next years class will be able to purchase supplies to build another house. They are asking for $42,000. The house was built with a 2-by-4 inch framework and has handmade oak kitchen cabinets. For more information call the technology center at 684-1910.
