An early look at the 2019 St. Jude Dream Home

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — Construction is moving right along on this year’s St. Jude Dream Home. We’re bringing you a look at what crews have accomplished so far!

The 2019 Dream Home is in Marshall County, about 1.5 miles from the McCracken County line.

The framing is up, and workers are finishing work on the roof. The finished home will have two stories and plenty of storage space. It will have three bedrooms, three bathrooms, an office and a bonus room, as well as a two-car garage.

Talking with Local 6 on Wednesday, contractor James Mitchell says they are a few days behind because of recent heavy rains, but they’ll be able to progress smoothly once the roof is finished.

“Once we get it dried in, we will be able to move into the inside with all the rough-in things (such as electrical and plumbing lines) and then installation and drywall to follow,” Mitchell says. “And in the meantime we will have stone and siding ordered.”

They plan to work on windows Thursday and move on to electrical and plumbing next week.

Tickets for the 2019 St. Jude Dream Home Givaway will go on sale starting in May. The money raised will help benefit the kids at St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
