Drywall covers more walls and ceilings than any other material in remodeling and construction today. For the DIYer about to embark on an interior renovation project, drywall will most certainly be needed. In this workshop, students will learn about different types and uses of drywall, how to estimate drywall material, and how to properly install (hang) and finish (tape) drywall.

His unique background combines professional experience as both a carpenter and an educator. Michael is currently a middle school principal, but he started out as a journeyman carpenter and has experience in commercial and residential construction. He attended a four-year carpenter’s apprenticeship training program and holds degrees in Economics and Education from Duquesne University and the University of Pittsburgh.
