It’s one thing to hear about polyurethane foam and how it is the world’s greatest insulation. It’s quite another to spray the foam yourself and watch it expand into a firm yellow matrix.

We will teach you the best patterns for rebar reinforcement, then you tie rebar yourself, laying it out in a criss-cross pattern. You will get an in-depth discussion on how to apply shotcrete, then you get your hands—and pretty much everything else—dirty by spraying shotcrete yourself.
