House built by carpentry students to go under the hammer tomorrow
A four bedroom house built by Otago Polytech carpentry students will go under the hammer tomorrow, with proceeds going to local charities. The project looks set to have raised more than $500,000 since its inception five years ago. And the recipients say the contribution the students are making is likely to have a ripple effect throughout the community.

Charity House to be auctioned today
By Vaughan Elder
Now in its sixth year, Otago Polytechnic’s Charity House project looks set to pass the $500,000 mark in funds raised for Otago charities after the latest house is auctioned today. Under the initiative, polytechnic carpentry students build a house for auction, with the profits donated to more than 30 local charities. So far, the scheme has raised about $465,000, with today’s auction set to bring the total to more than half a million dollars. This year’s four-bedroom home comes complete with an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe for the master bedroom and is fitted and furnished with state-of-the-art appliances and fixtures. It was built on campus in Dunedin to maximise learning opportunities for the students, two-thirds of whom had no building experience when they started the task. Polytechnic carpentry programme manager Graham Burgess said the success of the initiative was a “real credit to the students and staff involved”.
