News8000.com: A new home is built in the city of La Crosse by area high school students.

Students in the School District of La Crosse’s Architecture Construction Engineering Academy finished their first complete home construction project.

They showcased their work at an open house Wednesday.

Last year’s senior class framed the building, while this year’s group of seniors built the garage, put on the exterior siding and finished the interior work.

For city leaders, partnerships like this are big for the community.

“It’s incredible. I mean, we’re so proud of them and the workmanship and the skills that they’ll take through their whole life now, whether it be for actual careers or for their own homes,” said Jason Gilman, City of La Crosse’s Director of Planning and Development.

The home is part of the district’s partnership with the City of La Crosse’s Replacement Housing Program.
