KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A summer project came to an end Tuesday for some local students.

Youthbuild KCK members teamed up with Kim Wilson Housing to build tiny homes for the homeless this summer.

They started construction at the end of August and now what they've created will  be transported to Pittsburgh, Kan.

When finished, the house will feature two separate 64-square-foot homes, each with a platform bed with storage underneath.

The duplex will have a refrigerator and microwave, and residents will share a bathroom.

Youthbuild is an organization that works with at-risk youth to give them an opportunity to finish high school while earning a construction certification.
