Wood framing is the structural skeleton of your home. If you are planning a remodeling project that includes opening walls or adding on, this workshop will help you tackle the job in a safe and structurally sound manner. Students will learn safe use of hand and power tools, layout, measuring, cutting, and ultimately how to frame a wall with a door opening.

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.
