A house is on the move this morning traveling in seven pieces along Palm Beach County’s roadways.

The house is the second modular home built by the Seminole Ridge High School Construction Academy for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. The students completed their assignment five months ahead of schedule.

Habitat supplied the building materials. The students, mentored by their teacher, a volunteer project manager and local subcontractors, did all the work.

The house rolled out of the Academy’s shop yesterday, according to the school district’s web site.

Loaded on seven tractor-trailers, It will be driven in pieces to 130 South E Street in Lake Worth. The goal is to have the 1,206 square-foot house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms “completely installed” by sundown.

Habitat for Humanity takes over after that , completing the roof, siding, painting and cabinetry work. Then more students will have a crack at the house when the Royal Palm Beach High School’s Air Conditioning Academy will install the duct work and AC equipment.
