GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- If you're in the market for a new home, we may have one for you! And it's thanks to some Green Bay high school students.

The students unveiled a new home they helped build Thursday in the Fort Howard neighborhood.

The students have been working on the home since September, for three hours a day.

The students are from East, Preble and West High Schools.

They were working with the group "Neighbor Works Green Bay" to finish the home.

"It makes me more proud that the students when they take pride in what they do," said Doug Jahnke, Bridges Construction & Renovation instructor. "That's where I take my pride from seeing students complete a project."

The students not only picked up some skills by helping build the house, but they also had the opportunity to earn college credit.
