In Residential Construction, students build a model size of the corner of a house using our exclusive construction kit complete with tools, materials, and procedures. First the foundation, where students learn about the components of a sill plate, foundation header, and support beam as they put them in place. Next, they build platform framing, which includes setting floor joists, measuring bridging, and adding sheathing. Then, students add exterior and interior walls and roofing. Each major step involves reading a framing schedule and building plan as well as measuring, cutting, and attaching a variety of pieces.
