Series: Let's Build
Slip on your overalls, pop on your hard hat and jump in the digger - let's build a house!

First the floor, and then the walls,

Then the roof. Let's build it tall.

You and me - we'll build it all!

Up, up, up.

A step-by-step look at how a house is constructed from digging the foundations and laying the bricks through to fitting the drains and painting the walls. Let's Build a House is a high-energy, gorgeously illustrated picture book written by a real-life engineer.
