Construction house

The construction trades house sits on the south side of Litchfield High School, awaiting its move to a location following an auction that brought $162,000 for the student-built house.

A booming housing market and reputation for a quality product earned the best price ever for Litchfield High School’s construction trade house.

The house, constructed by students during the 2021-22 school year, drew a winning bid of $162,000 during an online auction in July. That’s $57,000 more than the next-highest sale ($105,000 in 2020) and should result in the largest profit ever.
