Emery High students build a house

The Emery High Construction class along with their instructor Jim Keele stand in front of their recently completed house near the Aquatics Center in Castle Dale.

The Emery High construction class spent the last school year building a home in Castle Dale. They learned how to roof, put in carpet and flooring, framing and all other aspects of home building. The Emery County School District supports the building of a student built home each school year.

The students enjoyed the roofing and some of them became expert framers during the project. The feeling of accomplishment at the ending of the project was felt by all students.

Teacher Jim Keele said this was a different year because he was off work with an injury and the students weren't able to work on the house during that time. The students worked extra hard to make sure the house was completed on schedule. This year's house is the largest and nicest of any the class has constructed to date. It has a large kitchen, four bedrooms, living room, garage, three full bathrooms, wash room, large walk-in closet and large tub in the master bedroom. The house is being sold by JuNette Terry of Trails End Realty.

Construction students include: Kittyara Barnes, Jordan Davis, Tyler Fairbanks, Jace Fausett, Brooke Fisher, Hunter Huntington, Kyle Johnson, Joshua Knighton, John Lindquist, Michael Nelson, Erika Olsen, Brett Sorensen, Seth Stephens, Jesse Winn, Cammie Boyce, Nila Keele, KaRanda Krompel and Brandon Randall.

To celebrate the completion of the house they had a pizza party during the last week of school.
