Teens in Montgomery County designed and built a house — and it’s for sale

It’s listed for $549,000


Many of us probably struggle to remember our final projects, but the students at Thomas Edison High School of Technology in Silver Spring will never forget what they worked on in high school. WAMU has a very interesting story about how teens at the high school’s two-year Construction Technology program pick specialized trades, then work together to design and build an actual house. What a group project.

So far, students from the school have built 41 “Young American” homes with the help of their teachers and non-profit Construction Trades Foundation. One such home was just finished last week, and after students took their parents on a tour, the 3,000-square-foot brick colonial hit the market for $549,000.
