We aim to bring clarity to the home building process.

And we consider community education a part of our mission.

Dirty Hands Workshops

A house is the biggest investment many people have.  But lots of homeowners—particularly women—lack basic knowledge about how to maintain it, how plumbing and heating systems work, or how to do simple repairs.

We’re empowering homeowners to do-it-themselves, with one-day, hands-on workshops on topics like easy energy-efficiency projects, how to prevent moisture damage, weatherization.

Understudies Mentoring Program

We’re bringing the internship model of on-the-job training to the construction trades.

  • If you want to learn about home building with an eye to getting in the business…
  • If you’ve already got a grounding in some aspects of building, but want to shadow a pro in a new area (the latest in energy efficiency design, finishing, plumbing, etc.)…
  • If you’re a contractor or subcontractor willing to mentor motivated interns who want to learn from you…

…then we want to include you in our clearinghouse, matching construction interns with contractors.
