This course is still very detailed...even though you will be taking on multiple trades, we try to give you as much experience and understanding as we can, you will learn the fundamentals of your chosen skills and progress rapidly through each.

  • Ensure your walls are square and vertical
  • Build a corner, a pillar, a pier and a  cavity wall.
