Mill and House Carpentry is a three-year program that is divided into two major parts. The first year, students receive basic instruction in the process of milling lumber into various components including cabinets and counter tops. The second and third year, students spend the majority of their time learning how to construct a house from foundation to finished product.
The annual house-building project provides the setting for the “on the job” learning activities. The Carpentry Program has the major role in the house-building program, as we are responsible for completing the structure of the building in a timely fashion. This enables the other trades of Plumbing and Electrical to perform their work. The carpenters also install all windows and doors, shingle the roof, and install finished products to both the exterior and interior of the house.
