Gain a basic understanding of carpentry, electrical, and plumbing systems of the average house. Learn about hand tools, power tools, and construction materials. Each week will have a project. We'll start with building a small wall. Learn how to measure, cut, layout, and join wooden studs. Next, install an electrical circuit through the studs and install a receptacle, wall switch, and light fixture. Finally, install drywall, apply tape, and joint compound/spackle.
