Home Building


Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Marywood University students recently participated in a Habitat for Humanity project in Cape Charles, Va. Kevin Wyllie, assistant professor and graduate director for the Interior Architecture program at Marywood University, led the team of ten Marywood University undergraduate students for the week-long service trip.

Together, the team met with the clients, then worked on completing the siding, rafter trimming, railing systems, electrical systems and two stairwells for the project.

Beyond working on the home project, Professor Wyllie and students designed a bath house for a local campground, which they hope to build next summer after raising funds.
