Building a House

We bought this book at Charlotte's book fair this year and I love it!  The story is about a family that packs up and moves to the country where they build their house from scratch.  It takes a few years (they live in a little trailer in the meantime) and a lot of hard work, but what a beautiful sense of community, environmental responsibility, and self-sufficiency they have.  The best part is, the story was based on the author's true experience of his parents building their house when he was a child.
