This little sod house is very simple to put together so I included a more difficult element to add to the appeal. After seeing some black and white photos from the 1800s, I noticed most sod houses included water barrels as well as covered and uncovered wagons in the photos. With this extra pattern for a wagon and a barrel, the pattern can be used for very young students with the house only, and older students who may want to tackle the wagon or barrel or both. Cutting around the spokes of the wheels can only be done by older high school students or adults. The finished house is only 2.5” x 3.5” x 3”. However, the wagon measures 5” x 3.5” x 3” and another 5” for the harness.
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 a 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.
Materials for construction:
Printed pattern on heavy paper
