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

Corequisite(s): None

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:
  1. Students will layout specific geometric shapes using a compass and straightedge to tolerances as required by the instructor.
  2. Students will accurately identify, by sight, various common moldings.
  3. Students will demonstrate the ability to cut and fit common moldings to fit with tolerances dictated by the instructor.
  4. Students will accurately identify stair and balustrade components, calculate stairs to within specific tolerances as required by the instructor.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Students will accurately identify several of the more common types of architecture as required by the instructor.
  9. Students will demonstrate the ability to perform an in-depth research project as directed by the instructor such as:
    1. Residential millwork applications to a commercial building frame
    2. Design (profiles, detail drawings, material type, etc.) estimate and plan millwork for a comprehensive project, this may involve execution of a project.
    3. Historical preservation/restoration
