Taos, New Mexico home of Adobe

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Taos Real Estate | Page Sullivan Realtor, Associate Broker

Making a house of mud, straw and sand?  Sounds like the three little pigs right?  Actually Adobe bricks have been used for building homes for centuries.  In the Taos County area, many homes are made of adobe which is a really fine green building material and is a great insulator.  The Taos Pueblo Indians used adobe to build their Pueblo in 1100. The Pueblo is still standing in 2010 and is still being used as housing for the modern Pueblo family.

How is it in Taos, have not been there for a while, we sold our pottery there for years to a gallery on the Square, always loved the drive in from the Colorado side over the Rio Grande.
