According to student Amy Meyers, the experience was a rewarding one.
"We got to work with our hands and learn how things are constructed," said Myers. "The experience gave us an opportunity to apply all of the information from our first-year classes about construction and materials."
Students worked with Keith Reycraft, principal of Orchard Design, who provided information on design considerations relating to residential construction and working specifically with Habitat. Reycraft also observed the final design presentations by students and offered feedback to each of the students.
In addition to working on design strategies, the students also worked at the build site on three separate occasions.
When the build was complete, students were invited to a Habitat for Humanity appreciation dinner to meet other Habitat volunteers and families.
