A Lindale High School class designed a house.

Today, the students toured what was once their project.

"It's really fun to be able to walk into the house and see everything you designed be put down into the real world," says Ethan Gott.

Gott helped design the house when he was a junior at Lindale High School.

The house had three bed rooms, a bonus room on the second floor and three and a half bathrooms.

Stan Surratt is the superintendent at Lindale Independent School District.

"It makes me proud as a superintendent... to know that students worked to help design this, to come see the finished product. It's very exciting," said Surratt.

Students like Josh Moore said designing the house was a stepping stone to his future.

"It's given me a head up on drafting and working with computerated drawings and other stuff for whenever I start designing," said Moore.

"It's given them life skills and let them see if that's a career field they want to move into," said Surratt.

Red Baron Building Company worked with the students to build the house.

"The kids are very enthusiastic... lots of smart kids, lots of great talent...so it's very enjoyable to work with them," said Red Baron President Jerry Alexander.

The biggest challenge for the project?

"Going from the beginning where they're designing houses around the Maserati in the garage or the fancy motorcycle that only fits in the garage... to building something that works for a large group of people," said Alexander.

Moore was proud he designed a place where people can live and enjoy.

"I'm thankful for the opportunity that was given, and I'm glad they chose our designs," said Moore.
