When Sam, the library mouse, and his friend Sarah wake to find the library being packed up to prepare for a major renovation, they realize that they won't have a home during the construction. So off they go in search of a new place to live. Sam knows that research is key, so he finds books about architectural styles to get ideas for building a temporary home from the many objects found around the library. They build and live in a variety of houses: a castle, an igloo, a yurt, a modern house, and even a geodesic dome.

Sam would much rather spend his time learning about new things. In the end, the two can do just about anything if they work together.
