This course has been offered since 1980 and is the heart of our curriculum. It is appropriate for a range of individuals, from the person who wants to “do it all” to the person who simply wants to be informed enough to have meaningful and productive conversations with his or her architect and builder. Students will learn through hands-on construction projects, studio sessions, lectures, slide shows, house tours, and discussion. The Home Design/Build Course will provide individuals with the fundamental skills and resources necessary for creating their dream home – be it new construction or renovation. This course is also a good introduction for those interested in pursuing an architecture or building career. At the end of this intensive course, students typically leave with schematic floor plans, a scale model, and section and elevation drawings. They have gained a new awareness of design, materials, and the process of realizing a home that reflects their values and lifestyle.
