The Construction and Remodeling program prepares students for a career in residential construction and/or remodeling. Through intensively hands-on coursework, students learn how to take a project from prints and specifications through the final finish work. They will learn about site preparation, layout and foundations. In a semester-long hands-on course, students frame floors, walls, ceilings and roofs. In another course devoted to learning by doing, students install roof shingles, windows, doors, stairs, exterior trim, siding, cabinets and interior trim. All phases of home construction are covered, including estimating materials, understanding building codes and maintaining tools and equipment.
