If you would have asked me six weeks ago if I ever thought I’d be a pro at using a nail gun, I would have told you to keep dreaming. But after a day of cutting plywood to fit the frame and nailing panels up, I can confidently say that I am on my way to becoming a nail gun aficionado. There is something inherently cool about claiming that as one of your skills, and I’m so glad this class is helping me become more adept at construction – a life skill that many people our age go without.
