Habitat home moves to permanent location

SCHOFIELD (WAOW) - D.C. Everest students got to watch a house they built from scratch move to its permanent spot Friday.

Nineteen students worked on the Habitat for Humanity house every school day since September. A crane took the 56th habitat house from the high school to its foundation on Sternberg Avenue in Weston. A D.C. Everest teacher says that moment means the most to students.

"They were all very excited this morning. It's kind of the culmination of everything that happened all year long," said D.C. Everest High School teacher Chad Pernsteiner. "I've had a lot of students through out the years say this class teaches them more than all their other classes combined."

The home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and it will go to a family in need in the community.
