Vor 3 Jahren: “We built this three years ago.”
A typical mistake is to use “for” because it sounds like the German “vor”, so the sentence: “We built this for three years.” is not correct.
We write for before a period of time: I lived in Germany for two years.
We write ago to indicate a time in the past: I lived in Germany five years ago (2007).
