American Dreamers Donates Women in Construction Books to Pittsburgh Public Schools

Pittsburgh General Contractor American Dreamers Renovations recently donated more than a dozen copies of The House That She Built to Pittsburgh Public Schools. “Even though many girls have great vision, there is a reason people say, ‘Seeing is believing.’ I hope to reflect every day a vision for the women and little girls in our community and I am delighted to help add that same imagery into our public schools to expand our reach.”

The House That She Built is a children’s book that educates young readers about the people and skills that go into building a home. All the illustrations feature women in the key roles including the architect, framer, roofer and many more. The book was inspired after a team of real women came together, from around the country, to build a custom home in Utah. The home recently sold but the legacy of the project lives on through the pages of the book.

Dr. Ann Fillmore, the Executive Director of K-12 Literacy and Library Services confirmed the books were distributed in January and American Dreamers Renovations is thrilled to continue the mission of inspiring all children, especially girls, to pursue careers in the trade professions.


American Dreamers Renovations is a home renovation and construction company in Pittsburgh, PA led by leading female contractor, Morgan Kumpfmiller.
