In this video, four young teens try their hands at home building and decorating on real work sites with experienced tradesmen. John, a professional mason, shows Nora how to lay bricks for exterior house walls and decorative yard sculptures. Andre, a contractor, teaches Misha how to construct the framing for a townhouse. Painter and decorator Pat instructs Camille on pasting wallpaper and stenciling interior walls. And Jim, a licensed electrician, shares some of his tricks of the trade with Peter. Concise and engaging, this video is an ideal introduction to the building-related trades.
