MEDFORD, Ore. -- Today women across the Rogue Valley can learn how to get comfortable with building. It's part of the Lowe's and Habitat for Humanity's free "How to Clinics".
There are six classes covering the building process, job site safety, and power tools. Each week will focus on a different step of the building process, and by the last class the women will be putting the finishing touches on a completed project.
The classes take place every Tuesday at 6 p.m.
They will be held at the Medford Lowe's store at 3601 Crater Lake Highway, and taught by local staff.
Here are the classes:
Class 1 - Safety and POWER Tools
Class 2 - Framing Walls and Roof
Class 3 - Roofing
Class 4 - Insulation and Drywall
Class 5 - Exterior Siding
Class 6 - Finishing
All of this is a build up to Nation Women Build Week April 29th-May 4th. It will be a week filled with events and themed build days. Participants will get the opportunity to put their new skills to work on an actual Habitat House.
For more information you can call the Habitat for Humanity office at (541) 779-1983.
