Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of toy wooden logs which he uses to build a house on the floor. As he builds, he sings You're Growing, and then talks about the family that might live inside the house.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lloyd Lingeman is in the castle gymnasium with a group of young gymnasts who are sharing some tumbling techniques with King Friday.

Meanwhile, Lady Aberlin is at the tree talking with X the Owl about fire safety. Henrietta Pussycat gives her a set of curtains she has made for Corney's new factory. With this and the many other items provided by various neighbors, work on rebuilding the factory has begun.

At the factory site, Handyman Negri is hard at work when Lady Aberlin and X arrive to lend a hand. Corney is very pleased with the curtains made by Henrietta Pussycat, but quickly realizes that everyone except King Friday seems to be helping to rebuild the factory. Handyman Negri is called to the castle where he finds a contribution to the factory from King Friday -- a new weather vane resembling the King himself.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers picks up his toy logs as he talks about how everyone in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe seems to be contributing to the factory in their own way. He concludes by singing Then Your Heart is Full of Love.


As Lady Aberlin moves from the tree to the factory, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.

While continuing to work on the factory, everyone sings a variation of I've Been Working on the Railroad -- "I've been working on the factory....Factory won't you grow..."
