Hints for Homebuilders Videos Now Online
March 6, 2008 — In keeping with EAA's efforts to offer knowledge and information in the most user-friendly and readily available ways, EAA has created Hints for Homebuilders, a series of short videos that are now available online. Subjects for these initial videos were selected and developed by EAA staff and member volunteers.
"EAA has always been about sharing knowledge among members, and these new video tips are just another way of doing that, taking advantage of the opportunities the Internet provides," said Charlie Becker, director of EAA's member programs. "We're hoping to develop an entire catalog of tips, tricks, and alternative methods that will be valuable to EAA members."
There are currently five videos on display that include tips for composite, tube and fabric, sheet metal, and wood construction methods as well as a general category. A new video "hint" will be added each week and highlighted in e-Hotline. EAA is also asking its members to suggest tips that can be included in the collection.
"The vision for this online video project is that members will submit ideas for building techniques, shop tips, or anything that will make construction of a project easier.or perhaps a subject for which they'd like more detailed instructional information," Becker said. "We're looking for a broad range of tips that appeal to someone just starting out in homebuilding as well as the experienced builder. Remember, if something's new to you, it's new to others as well."
To submit ideas for future Hints for Homebuilders, e-mail Info@EAA.org and please put "Hints" in the subject line. Meanwhile, check out the videos now available online, and look for a new tip every week!
