Program Description:
The Carpentry Program has been designed to instruct students in all types of house construction and remodeling.  Students are involved in foundation layout work, house framing, and exterior and interior finish carpentry work.  The students work with a variety of building and finishing materials, and become familiar with modern methods and styles of commercial and residential construction.
