This book was inspired by the team of real women who came together from around the country to build a one-of-a-kind home — The House that She Built.
The home was created and completed by The Utah Home Builders Association’s Professional Women in Building Council of NAHB.
Driven by the fact that less than 3% of the onsite workforce in housing is women, the goal was to highlight and utilize skilled tradeswomen and women owned companies for all stages of the project. As momentum and national interest grew, women from all over the country traveled to Utah to contribute.
Mollie Elkman and Georgia Castellano were proud participants in The House that She Built project. They created the overall branding and marketing for the project, which helped secure donations, labor and media coverage. They were so inspired by the mission that they created this book to be able to continue sharing this important story long after the home was completed and sold.
