Residential Construction and Cabinetmaking - Build a House

Second-year Residential Construction and Cabinetmaking students begin with a basement foundation and nine months later end with an impressive finished house. They do all the framing, sheathing, shingling, siding, along with window and door installation, and trim work to turn building materials into a professional-looking house. The students go from learning the basics of house construction to applying these skills to construct and finish the house project. Below are photos of Residential Construction and Cabinetmaking students in the process of this endeavor.
