There is a lot to do more work, but today something like a gift was for the students who saw the House on paper drawn.
"To see this, here and now be, have we described it like Christmas, because we at a project worked for over a year, some of them two years and around here we see it actually physically go to a House, that we is designed fairly well", student Dana Cook said HU.
Another student said, it was good experience at work.
