Sidney students learn about house flipping

Sidney's Chief Building Official Brad Rowan informs Sidney High School students about requirements when fixing up a home on Thursday.

Sidney High School students planning to flip a house learned about building requirements last week from Sidney's Chief Building Official, Brad Rowan.

Students from the school's design and construction classes will work together this year to give a makeover to an area home and raise scholarship money in the process. The house, located at 1833 Maple St., was donated to the school for the project. After redesigning and fixing up the home, the schools plans to sell the house. It will use the profits for scholarships, as well as to get the classes' next construction project off the ground.

Last week, Rowan took students through the house and informed them about various legal requirements related to home improvements. These included proper house numbering as well as the size and location of windows.

Various local businesses have expressed interest in helping with the project, including Shaw Construction which donated roof sheeting and roof felt underlay.
