The council work with schools to get kids on project work like building a house from scratch. The design and civil engineering bits could be done by college students on apprenticeships but the trades and crafts and business admin bits like ordering bricks etc. would be for pre-16. The house could be a meeting centre for new mums, older people, young people with health issues, something for the community.
They would literally build a house, or another idea, build a kit car. There’d be all sorts of rubbish about H&S (you cant do that!) but not difficult to overcome, just needs commitment.
