Pasco High School Students Build Another House

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wa.,--Pasco school officials say this is the 10th Bulldog house that students have built. After seeing the house, its obvious that these kids have a bright future.

After months of sweat and spending time on the weekends, the 10th Bulldog house is complete and now ready for the open market. Pasco school officials and State Senator Mike Hewitt attended today's event. 40 students divided amongst two classes worked on this project, honing existing skillsets and learning about teamwork. Student Sean Sommerville says he feels a great sense of accomplishment.

"It's really nice to see all these people so interested in what a bunch of high schoolers did. The house looks really good today," said Sommerville.

This is the first Bulldog house that's energy efficient, equipped with solar power technology. More than 40 local businesses including Franklin PUD and Brashear Electric donated supplies, time, and labor in helping to mentor these future builders.

It's important to know that profits from all Bulldog houses go towards supplies and land for the next house, which will begin in the fall.
