First All-Women Built Home Breaks Ground in Utah

There’s a project like no other being built in Saratoga Springs, Utah, where everything from engineering to plumbing is being done solely by women. The project, The House That SHE Built, is believed to be the first home built by an all-female team. The 3,200 square foot home will be unveiled in June 2021 at the Utah Valley Parade of Homes and all proceeds will go toward construction management or trade program scholarships for women, along with women-run charities, such as a local domestic abuse shelter and educational resources for young girls. 

Stephanie Sharp, of Steven Dailey Construction in Draper, Utah, is one of the general contractors on the project. Sharp got involved in construction because her father was a builder, and she noticed early on the small number of women in the industry.

Sharp is hoping that the project will increase visibility about not only the varied career opportunities available for women in construction, but the number of good-paying jobs available, which in turn can help more women become interested in the industry and aid in filling the existing labor shortage.
