Coldest Class…

March 3, 2008

One of the great programs offered by the South & West Washtenaw Consortium is the Building Trades class. In this class students learn construction techniques – literally from the ground up!

Mr. Ruhlig works with local contractors to provide a complete overview of home construction. While there is a “classroom” space in an on-site trailer, the students are eager to get moving and work on the house. He typically pairs the students up and they work on specific sections of the house so they get to look back at (and show off to visitors) areas where their skills were put to the test.

The current house is located on Judd Road, just east of Warner Road. When it is finished it will be a very nice 3 bedroom ranch home.

I took a picture of the backpack rack – clearly, it is the only one of its’ kind in the district.
