BELLPORT - Cold temperatures and a snowstorm didn?t stop some students from building a house in eastern Long Island.

Students of Eastern Suffolk BOCES Brookhaven Technical Center are building a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, ranch-style home in Bellport as part of a carpeting and residential construction class.

The class has about 32 students in the morning and afternoon sessions and most say they didn't know anything about construction when the class began. Now each one is hammering, putting up the roof and laying out stairs.

The house is for sale, but BOCES is looking for donations of kitchen and bathroom materials.
