CIT to Auction Student-Built Home on Oct. 24

This home, built by PCC Construction and Industrial Technology (CIT) students, will be up for bid next month to raise funding for future CIT projects.

WINTERVILLE—A house constructed through the combined efforts of Pitt Community College Construction and Industrial Technology (CIT) students will be sold by public auction next month to fund future CIT training activities.

The home, a 1,568-square-foot ranch-style house featuring three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, is the latest to be built by the college’s Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration, Electrical Systems, Building Construction and Architectural technology students.

Will Pack, chair of PCC’s Building Construction Technology Department, says the home-building projects began at Pitt in 1988. He said each project takes four semesters to complete and provides students with knowledge of the construction trade and extensive hands-on experience.

According to Pack, an auction to sell the most recently completed home will take place Oct. 24, starting with a minimum opening bid at 10 a.m. The winning bidder, he said, must be prepared to make a 10 percent-down payment following the auction and is responsible for having the home moved.

Pack said the home up for bidding this fall meets or exceeds Greenville Utilities Commission E300 standards for energy efficiency and features a spacious den with cathedral ceiling, painted molding and trim, insulated windows, custom-built oak cabinets, fiberglass-insulated doors, and a high-efficiency heat pump. Appliances include a disposal, stove, dishwasher and microwave, and there are refrigerator icemaker and washer hookups.

Potential bidders can schedule appointments to see the home in person or attend one of three scheduled open houses that will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 3, 10 and 17. The home is located on PCC’s main campus at the corner of Reedy Branch Road and Warren Drive.
