I see you've been a member for going on two years, and this is your first post. Hopefully, this means that you've been taking the universal advice and reading every word here. It's worth it.
Also, good on ya for doing all the education! Education is a Good Thing in and of itself; it keeps your brain flexible. I've done the construction trade classes at a community college, and I sure wish there was somewhere near to take diesel mechanics. Alas, Washington DC area is far too advanced to pay any serious attention to any manual trades.
Also, be aware that this is similar to but by no means the same as house construction. The skills will come in handy, but everything is custom and hand-built.
