MISHAWAKA — Building trades students at Mishawaka High School will learn renovation skills in addition to constructing a new house next year if the school district “buys” a house to upgrade.

The Mishawaka Redevelopment Commission on Monday will decide on an agreement  to sell a house at 324 W. Mishawaka Ave. to the building trades program for $1. The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 600 E. Third St.

The house renovation plan is a first for the school’s building trades program. With currently high costs for building materials, teachers in the program have decided to expand its skills for students by offering a renovation program that will return the two-story, 1890s house on Mishawaka Avenue to its original state.
