Description: An interactive teaching tool for the middle and high school classrooms. The simulation presents a macro view of the entire home building process, from site selection to final sale.

The new program is part of the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) ongoing educational outreach initiative, in partnership with the National Housing Endowment, Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters and Freddie Mac.
