Forum Title: How To Become A Framer
Hi guys, looking for any and all advice on this subject if possible. I am currently working as an electrician here in Scotland, and while i do enjoy my work, i really wish id started off as a joiner. Something about constructing things and working with wood really brings a smile to my face and i try to help the joiners i work with as much as possible. However, my true dream is to move to the states to be a framer. Over in the uk, we don't differentiate really between framers and finishers, we just have joiners. So the question is, if and when i was to move over, how exactly does one become a framer? Is there an apprenticeship to go through? Do you have to go back to college? Or do you just ask someone to teach you? I know the work is hard and that the weather can be less than favourable, but it really appeals to me, the skill needed to construct a home always impresses me. Anyway, any advice would be much appreciated.
