A cliffhanger, I read it in one setting...You'll be fascinated! The Boston Globe
With all the excitement and drama of a great novel, House brings us into the intimate lives of a family building their first home. We feel tentions between architect, owners and builders... the day to day frustrations and crises, the challenages and trimphs. And in the end we share the joy of a magnificent dream come true.
