Combine cells and use as a worksheet name within the same formula

I am trying to combine 2 cells together to make the name of another worksheet within the same workbook.  All so I can use references to another worksheet in a formula.

Setup:
Worksheet1 = Dashboard
Worksheet2 = House1
Dashboard.CellA7 = House
Dashboard.CellB7 = 1
Dashboard.CellC7 = =A7&B7&!B6 (want to translate to "=House1B6" or "Bob")
House1.CellB6 = Bob

The spreadsheet has confidential info in it so I cannot send the actual workbook.  Since I cannot get this to work, I am not sure if making a "dummy" workbook would be very helpful.
