CARP 250

This course introduces the student to all of the key elements of residential construction from building site requirements, excavation, footings and foundations through beams, columns, floor systems and framing, roof systems and exterior and interior finishes. Students are exposed to the principles of building science throughout the course and come to understand the house as a system. The shop component of the course provides experiential learning activities designed to reinforce construction theory and to prepare the student for larger culminating projects in Semester 3 and for the workplace.
