High students in Belle Fourche have made significant progress on building a house, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The eight students enrolled in the residential construction course are currently installing drywall and ceiling insulation. The projected finish date for the project will coincide with the end of the school year in mid-May.
The residential construction course began out of a collaboration between the Belle Fourche School District, Belle Fourche Economic Development Corporation, and the West River Foundation. The sale of the finished home will be managed by the Belle Fourche Economic Development Corporation. The home must be sold to a Belle Fourche resident who works within the city.
