PADUCAH — Crews are continuing to make progress building the 2021 St. Jude Dream Home.

Wednesday, workers poured and smoothed concrete on the front and back porches. Once they’re dry, masons will finish the stone work around the base of the home.

Another crew started measuring, cutting and hanging the staircase leading to the three bedrooms upstairs.

Most of the plumbing is finished, and electricians are due this week.
