CU-Boulder students build a monumental hut

A group of 15 CU-Boulder environmental design students previously scant of construction experience can look back on the summer and say they built a building -- from foundation to roof, from insulation to siding, from caulk to paint. 
The students built the structure for a client, the Lama Foundation in Questa, N.M.

The location is about 300 miles south of Boulder. Full story>>
