6-Week Beginning Home Construction EVANSTON

$450.00
Learn how to build a simple structure using standard construction methods and tools.

This class meets 6 Consecutive Weeks. Class Dates: June 4, 11, 18, 25, July 2 & 9.

Want a DIY tool shed or playhouse for your yard? This is the class for you!

We’ll start by covering construction terminology and how to read simple plans. Participants will then work as a team to build a backyard shed.  Steps include laying a deck, framing and sheathing walls, framing out doors and windows, installing rafters and shingling the roof. 

You’ll learn measuring techniques and how to safely use chop saws, brad nailers and drills.

At the end of the class you will have the confidence to build your own simple structure.
