Relevant for homeowners, first time home buyers, and renters. The first hour will be lecture, followed by Q&A.

Home Fundamentals helps you understand the systems that provide comfort and safety in a home, structural, plumbing and electrical. You'll learn technique, terminology and materials used to build each system.  

  • Structural explores foundations, framing, roofs, structural load, drywall and lots more.  
  • Pluming examines rural water/waste vs. city water/waste as well as the materials and fixtures that supply water and remove waste from the home.
