MEDINA – The Building Trades program and Electricity and Electronics program at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center have been working together on building a modular home Habitat for Humanity.

Bill Leggett and his Electricity students recently got the good word from Tim Enderby from Empire Inspections, that the house passed their “rough in” electrical inspection.

“This will allow Mr. Anastasi and his Building Trades students to go forward with our next steps which will include insulation, drywall hanging, taping and mudding, then painting,” said Mr. Leggett. “After those are complete, the ‘finish’ electrical happens which is the connecting of the switches and receptacles and lighting outlets.”

Mr. Enderby will them return to the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center to make his final electrical inspection so the house may be moved to its final location. Both programs are enjoying the process of building the house and giving a deserving family a home.
