31st Student House Project Complete

Over the summer, the Frederick County Public Schools Career and Technology Center (CTC) and the Frederick County Students Construction Trades Foundation, Inc. completed their 31st Student House Project at 7924 Yellow Springs Road in Frederick.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom student-built house is a two-story, modern “Cape Cod” model with 2,326 square feet. The home has an inviting front porch, two-story entry foyer, a handcrafted turned staircase, and an expansive living room with built-in bookcases flanking a gas fireplace.

The kitchen is well appointed with a large island, custom-built 42” cabinets, stainless appliances, Quartzite counter top with Herringbone-tiled back splash, double-wall oven/microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, and a gas cook-top. The home also features 2-1/4" Red Oak stained-in-place hardwood floors and Carreras marble tile in the bathrooms.

The master bedroom, with tray ceiling, is also on the main level. The master bath features hexagonal Mosaic flooring, a full access shower with curbless drain and three shower heads plus separate vanities. The main level has a laundry room, powder room, and office/den with pocket doors. The entire first floor is handicapped accessible.

There are two bedrooms on the second level, as well as a den/craft room with two walk-in closets, and a large full bath. The unfinished basement has an outside exit and a rough-in for a full bath.

In addition to realizing cost savings with no city taxes, the homeowner will save with the high-efficiency, dual-stage/dual-fuel heat pump, offering gas auxiliary heat, and a wireless smart thermostat. There is also a high-efficiency, tank-less gas water heater and water softener technology. The home is emergency back-up generator ready with two transfer switches installed and wired, and it sports a large side-loading garage. The yard is landscaped with a terrace and established lawn.

“FCPS has appreciated tremendous support from businesses in the community, each helping to educate the students by donating time and/or materials,” says CTC Principal Michael Concepcion. “The students’ work is first-rate, having been supervised by experts in each of the related industries. Proceeds from the sale of the house will help fund a future student-built house.”
