315S: Bandits take over the hand built house

Here’s what I’m looking for … a children’s book about a boy who builds a house, step by step (NOT “The House That Jack Built).
The 2 details he clearly remembers are “…a little bit of paint on/in his ear” … and the fact that bandits move in, using his house as a hideaway …
Can you please help me find this book?

  1. Could he posdibly be mixing two stories? Such as (naybe) Tony’s Hard Work Day (building a house) and Miss Suzy (bad red squirrels moving in)?
