KIRKUS REVIEW

 A photographic biography of a new house being built on a picturesque hill, from blueprints to clearing the site, excavating, laying the foundation, framing, finishing, and even furnishing. The clear, simple text here tells a little about the process and its magnitude: ``The carpenters...will use 400 pounds of nails....'' The color photos are crisp and bright, showing each step as new crews--carpenters, electricians, plumbers, etc.- -enter the scene. With one minor exception--a different part of the roof is shown than is described in the text--readers will always know just where they are and what's happening. Attractive and entertaining. Glossary. (Nonfiction. 6+)
