A three-bedroom, 2,090-square-foot home built by Pasco high
school students was under contract nine days after it went on the market.
The home was listed for $333,500.
Students, teachers and other partners celebrated the
completion of the Team Pasco House at 4118 Vermilion Lane, south of Interstate
182 near Road 68, on May 29. It’s the district’s 21st house built since the
program began 22 years ago.
It was put under contract June 7, said Vicki Monteagudo,
designated broker and owner of Century 21 Tri-Cities.
Century 21 Tri-Cities donates the listing commission of
nearly $10,000 back to the program to use toward student scholarships each
The Team Pasco Homes project is a joint effort involving
students from Chiawana, New Horizons and Pasco high schools.
Originally called the Bulldog House, the name changed when
Chiawana and New Horizons high school students joined the program.
Construction trades students built the home under the
guidance of teacher John Weatherby, with contributions from agriculture
science, floriculture and metals and welding technology students.
Some of the house sale proceeds also go toward buying the
lot for the next home, or the materials, said Shane Edinger, spokesman for the
Pasco School District.
The Team Pasco Homes Foundation oversees the program through
a partnership with the district and handles the program’s finances.
