Summary Beginning with design and estimating, through laying the foundation and installing the finishing trim, this series shows students the proper techniques for home construction. In addition to detailed skill-based instruction, students also learn about industry-standard techniques for estimating materials, new trends in foundations, framing, and other phases of construction, identifying the appropriate material for different applications, and how the trades work together to construct a home.
