Would you prefer carpentry as your career or architecture?
Being a carpenter was always a job i wanted since a kid. Architecture on the other hand has been my dream job. I would enjoy learning about designing buildings and write blueprints.
I attended Kansas State University (KSU) where the College of Architecture, Planning & Design (CAPD) offered degrees in Architecture, Interior Architecture & Product Design, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning & Design. While I chose to study Architecture, what was special about the program was the ability to look at design from all scales from the design of cabinetry in a kitchen all the way up to the design of street grids.
You will have the upper hand if you are a carpenter that becomes an Architect because you will actually know how things get put together so you can draw better details and have a better grasp of construction compared to other architecture students that often draw details that are nonsense because they are ignorant of carpentry/construction and only learn from books which is not the same as learning hands on which most students do not normally get in school.
Architecture is rewarding because as you go along in your career you can drive around your city or even other cities where you have project that you worked on and have a sense of pride to know that you contributed to something that will last and become a part of the fabric of that city.
But follow your passion because if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life because you are doing what you love and it will not feel like work.
