You will: learn about different types of roofing structures and how to construct a traditional ‘cut’ roof; learn how to lay floor joists, create hatches and fix different joist coverings; develop skills in fixing and fitting stairs, mouldings, encasements and kitchens; learn to install all types of doors; explore how to organise, plan and price jobs.
