- You will need more than a pen and paper to pass this class at Northland Pines High School.
Students are building a house and CornerStone Custom Builders are helping and funding the project.
On Wednesday the students got to skip their other classes to spend the whole day working on it.
The day's goal was to get the trusses up and sheet the roof.
"They're helping us set walls, set trusses, get the roof sheeted," said teacher Tim Lehman. "The contractors work right with the kids all day long. We take the day off from traditional classes."
There are about 10 students in the class.
This is the high school's fifth house.
"It's good skills to learn," said student Drake Schneider. "It's stuff you'll use for the rest of your life."
The project will take the students all year, and it will be finished in the spring.
Then CornerStone will put it up for sale.
