Students of the SLCC Framing Assistant Program are building two 8’x 12’ storage sheds as a final project of their training; the sheds are available to purchase for $1,900, which covers materials. Students will perform the labor under the supervision of their SLCC faculty member.

The program is a partnership of the Salt Lake City government, Catholic Community Services, SLCC Workforce & Economic Development and others.

    • Someone over the age of 18 must be present on either Jan. 26 (for Shed 1) or Jan. 31 (Shed 2) to sign for delivery and indicate where the shed will go.
