WECT Showcase Home

HAMPSTEAD -- If you're looking for new ideas for your home, a house under construction may be the model you're looking for.

WECT's first ever showcase home is under construction in Pender County. Once all the finishing touches are done you can head inside to check it out for yourself.

Everything from the roof to the carpet is being installed by local companies, giving them a chance to show off their work.

The house will open its door to the public the first three weekends in June. All proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Thalian Hall, the Domestic Violence Shelter, and Habitat for Humanity.

Tickets aren't on sale yet. We'll let you know when they are.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
