This hands-on course provides useful skills and pointers for fixing problems in and around your home.   Topics include replacing toilet valves, fixing holes in walls, installing shelves, fixing sticky doors, controlling rodents and other pests, light bulb selection and replacement, basic tools, and lots more.  If you’re recently on your own or are tired of calling for service for everything, this is a great way to learn the basics.  One class will be a field trip to Lowes!
