Construction Trades students at the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC) are putting the finishing touches on this year’s home. The home, at 2534 Chestnut Trail in Muskegon, features three bedrooms, two baths, a designer kitchen, a great room with nine-foot ceilings, a full basement prepped for a third bath, and a two-stall garage. This is the fifth home the MACTC students have built in that subdivision.
The 1,775 square foot home, like four other MACTC student built homes in the subdivision, has been built to Energy Star standards. Features include low-flow plumbing, a high-efficiency heating/cooling system, and a basement made from insulated concrete forms that are more comfortable, quiet, and energy-efficient than traditional block or poured walls.
