Bids Now Open: FSCC Students Build Pirate Ship Playhouse


Fort Scott Community College Construction Trades students took on a huge project. They built a pirate ship playhouse to auction off. Proceeds in excess of the minimum bid of $3,600 will go towards Skills USA competition, traveling expenses and materials for the construction trades program.

The playhouse sits at 27 feet long from tip to tail, 8 feet wide at the base, and 9 feet 10 inches tall. College officials say the frame, deck, trim, windows and railings of the ship were built with treated wood and the siding is white pine. Everything has been finished with stain and seal.

Students included a swing set, slide, a captain's quarters and more.

Some of the items were donated by surrounding businesses in Pittsburg, KS. Home Depot helped with the stain and seal, Mid-American Roofing provided the commercial grade roof on the captain's quarters and Backyard Discovery provided the swing set and slide.

FSCC is accepting sealed bids for the purchase of the pirate ship playhouse. The playhouse can be seen at Van Becelaere Greenhouse & Feed Store, 2513 E. 4th St. Pittsburg, KS 66762.

Bid details and forms can be obtained inside Van Becelaere Greenhouse or by contacting Kris Mengarelli, Director of FSCC CTEC, at 620.232.5644 or email at krism@fortscott.edu.

Bids will close on June 20th at noon.
