Student Shed Build Event to be a highlight of Saratoga Showcase of Homes

The upcoming Saratoga Showcase of Homes will feature a female student Shed Building event spotlighting women in the trades on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (rain date Oct.15) at 16 Indigo Way in Wilton, next to the Kodiak Construction Showcase Home.

Teams of 9th and 10th grade female students from Stillwater, Greenwich, Northville, Schuylerville, Corinth & Mechanicville high schools will construct sheds on the site – all at the same time, on one lot, in one day. The teams will be led by area females in the building industry and supported by local construction professionals.

“The construction trades present nearly limitless opportunities for all students, including those who may not have considered pursuing a construction-related career,” said Stillwater Superintendent Patricia Morris. “Today’s students are discovering all this field has to offer, and we are proud to partner in this exciting event.”

Builders sponsoring the shed builds include Teakwood Builders, LeChase Construction, Whitbeck Construction, Hoosick Valley Contractors, and Witt Construction.
