What is the purpose of this class?

I wanted to give students the chance to do real world problem solving applications.  Everybody will (hopefully) live in a home someday, and it will probably need some type of repair completed.   So, why not learn about these repairs before they happen? 

What made you want to start this class?

I always wanted to do something like this.  I know what kind of headaches come with home ownership (my house is older) from fixing this and fixing that.  Learning  doesn’t have to be done to pass a test.   Learning can be trial and error and experiences.

What kind of assignments and projects do students in the class have to complete?

I try to cover the main units of simple electrical wiring; framing/adding a simple wall; drywall installation and repair; and finally, copper and CPVC plumbing.  If we have time, I will touch base on other applications.  

Do you have plans to add any new projects or assignments to the class later on?

We will see how it goes  I have the materials ready for Home Maintenance II and would like to go…in-depth (with) things like roofing, cement work, and who knows what else.
