A long-delayed desire to teach construction students how to build a house got an assist from an unlikely source, the performing arts.

Staff at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center offered a win-win suggestion to allow construction trades students to work on a house project this winter. 

Instead of starting from scratch and building a new house, why not remodel a house the Bowlus owns but wants to move so it can use the space for a new parking lot?
