Taylorville High School To Build House On Vandeveer

The Taylorville High School Building Trades program will be building a house in Taylorville. The house which will be built at 727 West Vandeveer Street will be started once the school year starts for the building trades program. The building trades program, was started in the 1960’s but recently Taylorville High School had to put the program on hold due to lack of funding. Teacher Matt Blomquist is excited because the program has started again. 


The goal is to finish the project in one year. The houses use to be a two year project, but since this is a smaller house it should only take a year to complete. Blomquist appreciates the support from the community.


Although houses of this nature used to be sold in an auction style, once this house is complete, with the help of Craggs Realtors, the house will be sold conventionally.
