Rhinelander High School building trades students help build house for Habitat for Humanity

The newest Habitat for Humanity house was unveiled Friday, June 7 and the Rhinelander High School residential construction students who built it got to take a bow.

The house, at 912 W. Phillip Street, was a joint venture between the nine students who worked on the house and Habitat, with some assistance from skilled tradespersons on the more specialized work, instructor Ryan Paszek explained.

"They spent the entire year working on it," Paszek "They built some of those walls four times, but they got them right."

The building was built behind RHS and designed to be transported to its final location in two pieces. It was lowered onto the foundation by a crane two weeks ago.

"This house is an eighth of an inch from perfect on the foundation," Paszek said. "When they first lowered it into place, it was a quarter of an inch from perfect, and the crane operator suggested we leave it like that because that's close. But I decided to make one more attempt to see if we could get it even closer."

The process of lifting the pieces into position was complicated by uneven weight distribution, but Paszek said the operator was able to close the gap. He said he knows of other school districts who have built the same house that ended up not as close.

He said the RHS students, all seniors, got a chance to work alongside skilled workers in several branches of the building trades such as plumbers, electricians and carpenters.

"Every single one of the students are going into construction in some form or another," Paszek said.

"That is great to see."

Another thing that was great to see was the dedication of the students, he added.

"They put in a lot of volunteer hours outside of class to get the house finished," Paszek said.

There is a bit more work to be done before the keys are handed over to the family that will receive it. Paszek said the work is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.
