Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: (3) Level: Beginner Category: , ,

Would you like to know more about how a house structure is made? Are you planning to build your own framework for your future home one day?

This workshop is designed to get you started in the world of carpentry.
We’ll look at the topic of the timber-frame house from a global perspective, i.e. why and how it’s so prevalent in our Western societies. Then, we’ll review the main techniques essential to the realization of a carpentry project.

During this 3-hour workshop, Pierre will pass on his knowledge in the following stages:

– In the first theoretical part, we’ll discover the wood-frame house (its history, usefulness, advantages and
advantages and disadvantages), as well as the means required for its implementation.

– In the second part, we’ll discover the composition of a wall (load-bearing, non-load-bearing, perimeter, etc.).

– And in the third part, during a participatory activity, we’ll be practicing the principles of house stability (participants will be asked to imagine possible
and we’ll see together if it holds or not, and why).

Skills required: none, this workshop is suitable for beginners and the very curious.

The price includes all materials and the advice of a professional carpenter.

NB: feel free to bring your own notes.

Excellente vue d’ensemble qualitative. L’instructeur maîtrise et a présenté exactement ce que j’espérais voir couvrir (et pourtant je suis très, très souvent déçu des formations théoriques en dehors du domaine professionnel). Rapport qualité-prix absolument imbattable sur ce sujet. Et encore, la formation est nouvelle et en amélioration constante: elle ne peut qu’être parfaite quand vous la ferez.
