Learning as they build, students follow the process of constructing a scale model of a storage shed, which includes framing the side walls, building a back wall and covering it with sheathing, framing and sheathing window walls, and completing the door wall. The students then put all of the walls together, set the roof trusses, soffits, fascias, and sheathe the roof. Students will also find plenty of highly useful construction information—such as the kinds, sizes, and grades of lumber available—as well as fascinating histories and facts about significant building structures.
