 Building Homes of Our Own is an interactive teaching tool for the middle and high school classrooms. The simulation presents a macro view of the entire home building process from site selection to final sale. Students collect information, solve problems and make choices as they build a 3D home against a budget, then review credit applications and sell to the buyer of their choice.
  The new program is part of the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) ongoing educational outreach initiative, in partnership with the National Housing Endowment, Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters and Freddie Mac.

Thanks so much for posting this link!  My son has a huge interest in architecture and building homes.  This looks like a great resource for him.
