    This is a program that the youth need in our home reserve in nwt. Awesome work guys. Very proud of the youth that are willing to do something that would benefit them in accomplishing a project that they can make for themselves n others in the future

    When I was in high school and college the construction students would frame up and finish a structure and then tear it down as it was just for practice and grades. This is the way it should be done everywhere. Good work, it will be rewarding for them to see it being put to use.

    Congratulations! What a great idea and good work. Please flesh out this story. I want to know about the students, the program, community support. It’s an idea that should be shared.

    I’m sure it will be warm too. Saskatchewan is cold cold cold in the winter, and hot hot hot in the summer. It’s a Bi-polar province.
