HOUSTON — High school students in Kingwood are using nails and hammers to help veterans.
The teens unveiled their second tiny home Monday they have built for a homeless vet.
“I’ve been working on this house for two years,” C.J. Schoettlin, a student at Kingwood Park High School, said.
In only 209-square-feet, students were able to fit all the essentials: a bed, dining table and chairs and cabinets.
“We hope to make these for years to come,” said KPHS senior Parker Ryan.
The tiny house is the second built by the architecture and engineering students at KPHS.
The home was built for a veteran in need of a place to live.
“Being able to pick up a veteran off the street and give him a home to live in and grow is just amazing to me,” Ryan said.
U.S. Marine Corps veteran Edward Rodriguez had a stroke two years ago.
