TDS Construction Classes

Tierra Del Sol offers two different construction experiences. The second period class allows students to create a wood project of their choosing. Students get inspired to build chairs, tables, desks, even skateboarding ramps. Third period exposes students to three-week lessons in a variety of construction-related fields. Some of the units available include: plumbing, electrical, concrete, masonry, framing, roofing, surveying, hand tools, power tools, blueprint reading, job estimation, as well as others. See the pictures and projects below.
