AECT 330 - Residential Millwork
Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 2
Laboratory Hours: 4
Prerequisite(s): CNST 110
Restriction(s): Junior status; Construction Management BT major
The more advanced areas of finish carpentry are studied. Practices of complicated interior trim, advanced stair construction and hand-rail systems, as well as a variety of other millwork applications are covered. The course includes some laboratory exercises applying these skills.
Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
- Students will layout specific geometric shapes using a compass and straightedge to tolerances as required by the instructor.
- Students will accurately identify, by sight, various common moldings.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to cut and fit common moldings to fit with tolerances dictated by the instructor.
- Students will accurately identify stair and balustrade components, calculate stairs to within specific tolerances as required by the instructor.
- Students will accurately identify components porch construction and demonstrate knowledge of design as it relates to air movement and decay as well as proper material selection.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to create a custom cornice or layered molding project by layering moldings. Students will be required to build the perform to specific tolerances.
- Students will be required to demonstrate knowledge of producing curved moldings using a variety of techniques. Moldings will be required to be manufactured to specific tolerances.
- Students will accurately identify several of the more common types of architecture as required by the instructor.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to perform an in-depth research project as directed by the instructor such as:
- Residential millwork applications to a commercial building frame
- Design (profiles, detail drawings, material type, etc.) estimate and plan millwork for a comprehensive project, this may involve execution of a project.
- Historical preservation/restoration
