The New Mexico Adobe House is just a little more complicated of the paper house models because of its many parts. It is basically three buildings glued together as indicated in the pattern for the main house structure. Then there are little details like the little poles sticking out of two of the buildings, the porch, and the ladder. On top of all this, the roof is a flat top that is folded in and is part of each house instead of a separate piece. As you can see I colored and added a few leaves meant to look like aloe vera plants at the corners of the house. The ladder is optional. This is not one of the easier houses to create making the difficulty level at about 3rd to 4th grade and up. For a homeschool family with several grade levels, this may be one of the better purchases. The younger students can complete the house only while the older students can add on additional complexities.
Each house pattern is made to be printed on a regular 8.5” x 11” piece of cover weight photocopy paper. The complete instructions walk you through the process of creating a charming model paper house. I have included illustrated guides as well as full-color photos of the process. Collect all of them and make your own village or Christmas Town. The download allows you to print as many copies for yourself or your classroom as you desire. Please do not give them away or resell them. Support your local artists who need to eat and pay rent too.
You receive a 12 to 14-page pdf file with the patterns, directions and alternative suggestions for coloring, etc. Perfect for gifts for special occasions, classroom projects or just family fun events, like sleep-overs and cabin-fever curatives.
