Decks provide outdoor living spaces that are great for barbecues, gatherings, or some quiet book reading in the fresh air.  It is essential that best practices in construction are used to build a safe deck.  In this workshop, students will learn the procedures to build a deck that meets building code regulations and provides a safe outdoor space.  Students will learn about deck layout, footers, setting posts and girders, and framing the deck.

About the presenter: Michael R. Wetmiller is a Pennsylvania-Registered Home Improvement Contractor specializing in interior renovation.  He grew up in a family of tradesmen and attended a four-year carpenter’s apprenticeship training program.  He became a Journeyman Carpenter in 1999.  Michael has worked in both commercial and residential construction in all phases from foundations to finish carpentry.
