BCC house sells at auction

The most recent Buckeye Career Center student-built Buckeye House sold at public auction.


The most recent Buckeye Career Center student-built Buckeye House sold at public auction on June 15 for $317,000 to Dale and JoDee Myers. The Buckeye Career Center Board of Education accepted the offer at its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday evening.

Construction on the home began in August 2019 and concluded at the end of May 2021. The 1,760-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home features a front porch, covered back patio, two-car garage, three walk-in closets, a tray ceiling in the master bedroom, vertical farmhouse-style siding and an outdoor fire pit.

Business-partner contributions have helped make this one of the most modern homes in the University Drive allotment. The design and floor plans were provided by Schlabach Builders, a metal roof was donated by NorthStar Metals and ProVia contributed the windows for the entire house.

Buckeye students in construction technology, energy operations, masonry, landscaping, HVAC-R and electrical systems technology had a role in building the house. Buckeye officials said the construction project provides real-world training for students hoping to enter the construction field.

“The Buckeye House gives on-the-job experience for our students through the entire building process,” assistant principal Trent Edie said. “It’s really a great learning sample for our students.”

Kathy Pietro and Michelle Grimes assisted in the sale with Steve Cronebaugh auctioning the property. All of Barnett Realtors and Shannon Brogan of Williams Furniture helped with the staging of the property.

Construction of the next Buckeye House will begin during the 2021-22 school year.
