Learn how the surveyor, heavy machinery operators, carpenter crew, plumbers, and other workers build a house.
"As readers quickly comprehend, building a house is a complex project requiring the cooperative efforts of many people. With her usual skill, Gibbons makes the process easy to understand. Beginning with the architect who draws the plans, readers meet the surveyors, equipment operators, carpenters, plumbers, and other people who produce a building. The book concludes with a family moving in, ready to make the house a home....Women are well represented in many non-traditional roles." -- Jeanette Larson, School Library Journal
