high school student-built saw horse sitting on vacant lot | P-Tn


This (Turner High School) student-built saw horse is the only piece of equipment on the vacant site for a soon to be underway residential home build, which is the focus of a Turner High School Building Trades Class program that involves management of the entire build (and eventual sale, of course) of a house in the local community.  At the same time, high school students who have an interest in the construction industry and associated trades are offered a unique level of participation in the process.  

Learn more about the program thru this 2017 KSHB FEATURE article.  Instructor Hughes … “we use the house as a method to expose them to all sorts of trades, we bring in contractors.”  Principal Alan Penrose says, “every two years students build a new house, from start to finish.”  Spring of 2022 begins a new house building cycle, and P-Tn has the opportunity to support this effort by contributing the hardware and electronic to deliver site-monitoring throughout the build, and create a quality Time-lapse Video of the completed home; months of construction will be witnessed in less than a minute! 

Help us bring this video to life!
