Students at Northeast Technology Center, Afton campus, have started working on a home-building project that will keep them busy for a year.

The project gives several NTC classes the opportunity to work on a 1560-square-foot, hands-on housing project to be built on the school campus.

To begin the building project, the occupational industrial and carpentry classes are teaming up to lay the foundation.

The masonry class is in the process of laying a block foundation.

According to Masonry Instructor Terry Clarkson, they hope to finish the foundation by the end of next week.

At the conclusion of construction, the house will be sold.
