Playhouse walls will rise with speed, efficiency and artistry during the Habitat for Humanity of Hall County’s annual competition and fundraiser at Mule Camp Market this weekend.
Currently in its ninth year, this year’s competition has the theme of Battle of the Builders. Each playhouse will be built by construction classes from area high schools including Gainesville, Chestatee, Flowery Branch, West Hall and Johnson.
A panel of community leaders and construction professionals will judge the entries on the following categories: built to specifications; best exterior design; best interior design; attention to detail; best use of proper construction techniques; and the highly coveted, best in show.
Winners will receive awards, media recognition and an appreciation letter to the local school boards and principals. Winners will be announced at 4 p.m. Sunday.
“So much is accomplished with the playhouse competition,” building director and competition coordinator Tim Williams said. “This event provides learning opportunities and building skills to high schoolers and play time for kids during Mule Camp all while raising money for Habitat for Humanity.”
Visitors to Mule Camp will have the opportunity to buy raffle tickets to win one of the playhouses.
