The Alabama Home Builders Foundation (AHBF) has partnered with the Shelby County College and Career Center to offer a basic residential carpentry course to adults in the area.
The class will teach the basics of residential carpentry such as safety, construction layout, reading blueprints, framing, window and door installation, siding and exterior trim.
A survey of single-family builders conducted by NAHB in June 2016 shows that shortages of labor and subcontractors have become more widespread than they were a year ago.
The survey consisted of special questions on labor and subcontractor availability that NAHB has periodically added to the instrument for the monthly NAHB/Well Fargo Housing Market Index. The questions have covered 9 key trades in a consistent way since 1996. Averaged across the 9 trades, the share of builders reporting either some or a serious shortage has skyrocketed from a low of 21 percent in 2012, to 46 percent in 2014, 52 percent in 2015, and now 56 percent in 2016.read more
