On Thursday, November 18, 2021 Blain Snipstal—founder, designer, and lead builder of Earth-Bound Building—joined us in conversation with Preservation Carpentry Instructor Michael Burrey. Blain and Michael talked in-depth on the negative impacts modern construction have on our planet and how low-impact building can benefit us all, intersections with historic preservation, and the difficulties the face in building green. Plus, Michael gave a tour of his lime pit and kiln! Watch the full event.
Our Carpentry program encourages a commitment to excellence and a mastery of the craft. In 36 weeks, you’ll be able to jump-start your carpentry career and earn a return on your educational investment. Our small class sizes give you plenty of one-on-one time with your instructors, who are master carpenters.
In this program, you’ll learn how to construct and renovate residential and commercial buildings. You’ll use hand tools and machines, and learn the different practices of current and emerging industry standards. You’ll experience the importance of working together safely and efficiently on building sites to meet your clients’ needs.
Our Carpentry facilities are well-suited for lectures, benchwork, and small building projects. In addition, you’ll work off-site on construction that may include house additions, garages, or similar projects.
