Mechanics in the Shop

Right now, we are at the shop at Canosa beginning our training to prepare us for getting on the construction site. The mechanics have learned a lot over the last three weeks and we wanted to share our new skills with you!

Things we now know how to do:

• How to build a little house, complete with window, a door and a roof.
• How to read a tape measure.
• How to identify tools and use them.

• How to use a worm drive and circular saw.
• Use construction terms.
• Learned construction process by visiting Red Rocks.

Along with working and learning, we had a lot of fun playing games that had to do with construction and competition.
