The class is a rigorous course for the students, as they have to leave campus and travel to the construction site pretty much every school day, but the commitment yields great results when they get to welcome people in to see the house.

"Don’t underestimate teenagers and how much thought we put into it, how much effort and how much we can share," Jew said.

According to Drury, the two-year process allows the students to meticulously construct and fashion a high-quality house.

"We have a longer timeline to get it done," he said. "In the industry, they build them in three months, and sometimes things get lost."

For taking the class, the students can qualify for tuition scholarships to Salt Lake Community College, Snow College, Southern Utah University and Brigham Young University. Drury said he’s thankful to the Murray City School District for supporting the project and to the community for donating supplies.
