Students Put Classroom Skills Into Use By Building a Hom

SHENANDOAH VALLEY, Va.-- Some exciting news for students at Triplett Tech in Shenandoah County. A house they have been working on as part of a class project, is nearing completion.

Tim Stephens, the Electrical Instructor at the school, said this is the first time they have built a home this large, made out of brick.

It is also energy efficient. Stephens said they used extra foam to insulate the house and regulate the temperature. He said, this will save the home owner nearly 40 percent, on their electrical bill.

Stephens said, this project helps students put their classroom skills into use.

"The exciting thing for me is to watch the students learn. By knowing and experiencing the construction process, they are more prepared for the work force," said Stephens.

The goal is to have the home complete by early Fall.
