What does it mean to build a house?

How can it change a life?

What happens if the builder if a woman, a teacher and a writer, a woman unaccustomed tools? How does such a woman come to build at all? What happens, then, if that first house, whose every nail is known, is sold? How does one leave such a house, leave and go on to build another?

This is a building story, but more is a story of a woman builder and those without whom she could not have built. It is about how building changed not only that woman but also her sense of what a house is, how she came to know that building houses of wood builds the house of the spirit.

Written by a Shelter Institute graduate, this book takes you step-by-step through the process one woman went through to create and then share with others her dream of buidling not just a house, but a home.
