"Proud of the House We Built" is a song written by Ronnie Dunn, Terry McBride and Marv Green and recorded by the American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It was released in June 2007 as the first single from their album Cowboy Town. The song reached a peak of number 4 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
"Proud of the House We Built" was co-written by Ronnie Dunn, one-half of the duo, along with Marv Green and Terry McBride, who also plays bass guitar in Brooks & Dunn's road band and has co-written several singles for the duo. The song is a mid-tempo, featuring lead vocals from Dunn, describing a couple who are just starting a family. In the beginning, the narrator states that although it was difficult to start the family, he and his wife survived the stress that comes with raising a family, and overall, they are satisfied with how far they have come.
Kevin John Coyne, reviewing the song for Country Universe, gave it a B- rating. He said that it is "a decently good lyric that celebrates a love that started with nothing and still is fairly modest, but worthy of pride nonetheless." He also added that the melody was weak and the production was a problem.
"Proud of the House We Built" debuted at number 48 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs for the week of June 16, 2007.
