My senior graduation project will be based on a skill that I have decided to pick up on through life and hope to continue into my own business. This is related to my applications because I spend my free time fixing up areas of my house and doing side jobs. Thesis Statement
Personal Relevance This projects relates to me because it is what I have been working towards my whole high school career. Right at the start of my 8th grade year when we visited the tech school and I saw the possibilities in the construction trade I knew I wanted to be there. I wasn’t completely sure witch area of construction I wanted to be in. As I worked on the several projects they gave us and the side projects I have done on my free time I decided I enjoyed home renovation the most and that’s how I became upon this project because it is what I want to do with my life and I enjoy doing it.

Conclusion The main thing I learned from my project is color and material relations. I learned how certain materials can relate to each other and also what materials are a good choice for certain kinds of rooms. I also learned about how people think of there homes and why some materials are so popular.
