In this episode Amy talks about their involvement in workforce development for the residential construction industry. The Wood Tech Center (WTC) in Seattle has been struggling for several years and is threatened with closure. A task force has been created on the state level with Frank Chopp, state representative from the 43rd district, and Louise Chernin, chair of the Seattle Colleges Board of Trustees, acting as co-chairs along with faculty and industry representatives. This task force is working on finding solutions to the funding shortfalls these programs have and find innovative solutions to reviving these much needed programs for the sake of the residential construction industry and ultimately the issue of housing shortages and affordability.

Alicia gives us an update her bathroom remodel project which is scheduled to start in a few short weeks. Stay tuned to hear how it goes.
