REFUGIO, Texas — Students with the Del Mar Rebuild Texas program say to create a structure it takes much math, science, and hard work.

“I mean there's a lot of math that's involved and you kinda got to be precise when it comes down to the measurements,” said student Matthew Natale.

Del Mar College Rebuild Texas Carpentry students say there’s a lot of work involved but are glad the mini house they built will be donated for a good cause.

“I feel really thankful that we had this opportunity and to know that it's going to a good cause is extremely you know, I'm glad for that,” said Natale.

The class says the finished product took about five weeks to build and will be given to the First United Methodist Church in Refugio.

The church will hold a drawing for the mini home and proceeds will go toward its Sunday meal feedings and youth programs.

“We're also going to deliver it, in that feat so it will be delivered to the spot you want and it will be painted before it goes,” said church board member Lenny Anzaldua.

Students say being part of this experience is something they can take with them and apply their skills to future builds.

The last day of class for this Refugio group will be Thursday.
