Good to know. I was wondering whether बनाना was only used for children making a house with blocks or making one out of a packing crate, while the building done by construction workers would have to be some other Hindi word.
I can make a house out of almost anything ad hoc, but it is not the same as building a house. I don't think we collocate "make" with "house" if is is a question of normal construction. Or if I am playing with paper or cardboard I could say "I am making a house."
