WSU’s School of Design and Construction is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to finalize building an affordable home in Uniontown, Washington.

The groups will be holding an in-person viewing of the final wall raising at 2-3 p.m. Sept. 2 at 503 Prairie Ave. in Uniontown, according to a WSU Events post.

Students and professors who helped build the home will host the event, according to the post.

The Center for Civic Engagement will provide transportation to and from the event, according to the post. Vehicles will leave from Carpenter Hall at 1:15 p.m. and will return at 3:30 p.m. 

The house is made from recycled materials, which leads to a lower cost for low-income families, according to the post.
