Teen builds house for late father

Posted: Updated:
MARIETTA, Ga. -

A Marietta girl and her father were building a 128 square foot "tiny house," but the project took an unexpected turn when an accident changed their world.

Sicily Kolbeck,14, and her father started building a tiny house as part of a school project, but just two weeks in construction tragedy struck.

Kolbeck’s father was killed in an unexpected car accident. The Kolbeck family was devastated, so they decided to put the house project on hold.

It took a couple of months, but the family found the strength to start on the project again. The family started a fund to help pay for supplies and materials.

For a year and a half the Kolbecks worked on the house. The house is now complete with a kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom loft.

In a corner of the house there is a family photo that reminds the Kolbecks of all they overcame to complete the project.
