Senior Citizens Project. Final Report 1984-85.
Somerset County Vocational Technical Schools, Bridgewater, NJ.
A program was undertaken to provide hands-on training to high school students enrolled in building trades programs. Students would plan and construct dwellings that would eventually be turned over to the local community services agency to be offered as rental units to low- and moderate-income senior citizens. The initial project was a one-story home designed and built as a multiperson dwelling suitable for up to eight residents. Students in the school's drafting and design programs developed a scale model of the dwelling, after which an architect drew up plans for the actual house. After several advisory board meetings, materials and supplies were ordered for the initial phase of construction. (A complete breakdown of the hours spent in designing and constructing the house is attached to this report.) (MN)
