Students have been able to gain some real-world experience as they renovate the gazebo in the center of Wrentham. The junior and senior students and their instructor, Jeremy Barstow, have been working on replacing all of the trim and roofing and repairing structural framing. They hope to have the roof finished by the end of this year. Barstow comments, “The roof is a traditional cedar shingle system which is a labor-intensive process. It is an excellent opportunity for the students to work with one of the classic roofing materials.”
Chad Lovett, Director of Facilities for the Town of Wrentham, reached out to Tri-County for the renovation. The students have been working on the renovation for a few months now. “This is a great project for our students with a lot of unique detailed work. It will certainly push our students to grow as carpenters while having a lot of fun. The students are learning skills they can apply after graduation and are proud to be part of a build project that will be enjoyed by the community for many years to come,” says Jeremy Barstow, Carpentry Instructor.
