We’re on a mission to elevate women in the trades and prove that girls can accomplish anything.

These are the women who built the house
The House That She Built Book

Inspired by a true story.

The House That She Built educates young readers about the people and skills that go into building a home. One by one, we learn about the architect, framer, roofer and many more as they contribute their individual skills needed to complete the collective project — a new home.

With illustrations that connect and empower and words that build upon each other with each page, this book will leave all kids (she, he, and they) excited about their own skills and interested in learning new ones.

Proceeds support workforce development initiatives in the homebuilding industry.
