Matt Blomquist: Build, Learn, Teach

Matt Blomquist: Build, Learn, Teach

What did you make in your shopclass?

My next guest Matt Blomquist and his students build high performance homes in his shop class.

In my talk with Matt, we talk about the guts of a home building shop class and how to set one up where you live.

Join us!

That’s my guest today on the contracting handbook podcast, Matt Blomquist. He’s a shop class teacher that builds houses with his students. Today we are going to look at what it takes to start and operate a program like this. The idea is, lets get more schools involved and do whatever we can to get todays kids to be tomorrows builders.

Mike Knoche has been running his general contracting business for 16 years. It's been trial by fire and in The Contracting Handbook, Mike shares his successes, his failures and asks other industry leaders to join him in a discussion of how to run a construction business! The Contracting Handbook podcast discusses the behind the scenes running of a small construction company. It’s everything from starting up, working with employees, subcontractors, and clients. Remember, it won’t just be Mike’s perspective as he will talk to contractors from all over the world about theirs too! Why the world over? Because through his travels in the off season he’s come to see that contractors everywhere have similar business needs, struggles, and ideas in common. We a are a global community of builders!
