Residential Construction


Residential Construction - 100 Hours

WSWHE BOCES, in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, and the Saratoga-Warren-Washington Workforce Development System, is pleased to announce a partnership with the Saratoga Builders Association and Curtis Lumber to build a Tiny House. WSWHE BOCES high school level Career and Technical Education and adult students and Habitat volunteers will work in collaboration to complete a fully functional Tiny House, which will be presented to the community during the 2019 Showcase of Homes. The Tiny House will feature the latest in building techniques and products, beautiful interiors, as well as high quality furnishings - all built by local students and volunteers!

“We are so excited to be able to engage in partnerships that will enrich the workforce in our region, and provide both students and adult learners, the opportunity to gain hands on experience in the construction field, while working as a team,” says Dr. Turina Parker, Executive Director for Educational and Support Programs.

The Tiny House build will be part of a new, 100-hour course, divided into four modules (25 hours each) which provide an introduction to the various stages of home building. Topics include residential construction codes and regulations, safety, tool usage, materials selection, and various construction techniques. Participants are eligible to receive OSHA certification upon completion of the course. 

*Students are required to come prepared for each class with workboots that cover the ankle and workpants.
