Our Housing

Cherokee Industrial Corporation has partnered with Cherokee’s Washington High School and Western Iowa Tech Community College to construct a house. Students enrolled in the Basic Carpentry classes will actually construct a 2 BR/2 BA home with an attached 2 car garage. The full basement can be finished to include 2 additional bedrooms, a bathroom and a family room. Students successfully completing the course work earned dual high school and college credits and will graduate with a Basic Carpentry Certificate from WITCC. Course work and construction spanned the 2019-20 school year. This home is for sale and any profit from the sale of the home will benefit the Cherokee Education Foundation.
