Residential Construction


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 joints, measuring bridging, and adding sheathing. Then, students add exterior, 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.
