Home-Building 202

Submitted by Ricardo A. Bilton

During Interterm each year, Amherst College offers Homebuilding 202, a hands-on course where students learn the basics of bulding as well as the fundamentals of architecture. Learning takes place both on-site and in the classroom, with lessons being given on subjects like the concept of the "green home" and the benefits of providing low-cost housing.

More information on the 2009 course will be provided as it becomes available.
