110th house is auctioned off in Milford


Since 1961, students at Southeast Community College’s Milford Campus build houses from the ground up and auction them off to a winning bidder. The 110th house was sold for $88,000 to Christopher and Mary Sowers of Denton.

Students from three programs take part in constructing the house: Building Construction Technology; Electrical Technology and Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology.

Larsen & Associates of Cordova auctioned off the house, as they have since the beginning.

“The four generations of their family who have auctioned this home since 1961 has been one of the longest college-industry partnerships in SCC history,” said Ron Petsch, program chair.

The house was constructed over a 50-day period. The Sowers family will move it to Crete. For more information on the house, please contact Petsch at 402-761-8213 or rpetsch@southeast.edu.
