Publisher's Summary

Why on earth should the nail-by-nail building of a house hold any fascination for anyone? Because when you put a lawyer, an architect, and a hippie builder together, that spells trouble. Kidder tells his story so well that you can’t help but take sides.

Good book, well read

Would you listen to House again? Why?

I began reading the book long ago, but found the time to listen to the story. It is a good narrative of the process of building a house.
