What does 1 Kings 10:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 10:4

And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom
Which she perceived by his answers to things relative to all sorts of science, natural, civil, and divine:

and the house that he had built;
the singular for the plural, "house for houses"; the house of the Lord, his own house, that for Pharaoh's daughter, and the house of the forest of Lebanon; in all which there appeared not only surprising grandeur and magnificence, but exquisite art and skill; there was a great display of his wisdom in the form and contrivance of them. Josephus F16 says, what exceedingly surprised her, and raised her admiration, was the house of the forest of Lebanon.
