Construction students offer shed-building talents
ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb.
2, 2018) -- Construction technology students at Albany High
School’s Abrookin Career and Technical Center are looking to showcase
their skills to people in need of a well-made, custom-built and
reasonably priced shed.
Last year students built an 8’ x 10’ shed for the Athletic Department's
fields at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School (see photo at right).
Want something different? Submit photos of potential designs and the
construction team will work with you.
If you’re interested, here's how the process works.
If you want a shed like the one at Myers, students are ready to go.
Otherwise, send photos of what you’d like to Abrookin technology teacher

You pay for the building materials required. Erbe and his
student team will determine the materials needed and get a quote from a
lumber yard for your approval. Materials are delivered to Abrookin, and
the students build it there.
Moving the shed:
You are responsible for the cost and arrangement of transporting the
shed from Abrookin to its new home. Contact Erbe if you need help
finding a mover.
