Student playhouses sell, benefit Habitat for Humanity

POSTED: October 22, 2007 5:04 a.m.

Playhouses built by construction students in the Hall County school system sold for $17,000 during this past weekend’s Mule Camp Market in Gainesville.

All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity of Hall County.

A similar effort last year raised $12,600.

Mike Hollimon, president of the Greater Hall Homebuilders Association and chief organizer of the effort, praised the work of the students and teachers.

"All of them did really quality work building and selling," he said.

The best part of the weekend was when three construction teachers agreed to build a playhouse for a child with autism for Christmas.

"There were cheers, tears, hugs and chill bumps when this conversation turned into a project for this child," he said.

For the second straight year, East Hall High won "Best of Show" for its playhouse, dubbed "East Hollor."
