HOUSE #6

Miss Piney Road, West Palm Beach, FL

The Academy started construction of its 6th house for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County on February 3, 2017.  The students have shown that experience pays, with each successive house being completed in less time, with higher quality, and with less mistakes.  The tentative ship date for House #6 is at the end of November 2017.  This house will be going to a property on Miss Piney Road in unincorporated Palm Beach County.  The Palm Beach County Building Department, and its chief inspectors and chief building official, are providing the inspection services at the school to integrate teaching about the inspection process into the Academy’s curriculum.
