ROCKAWAY - A group of college students drove over 150 miles from Pennsylvania to Rockaway this weekend to help a Morris County man build his environmentally friendly dream home.

The environmental and earth sciences students from Susquehanna University traveled to help Jim Reilly with his ambitious house, which includes a green roof with plants and growing vegetation.

Reilly is in the process of trying to secure a construction mortgage loan to help with the last phase of the project.

After more than 15 years of planning and work, he hopes to have it completed by next year.
