New Mexico Week continues here at OPOD with this picture of a couple living in an Adobe Home. The picture was taken in 1940, and the couple are homesteaders who had just moved to New Mexico from Oklahoma. They built this adobe home the previous winder.
Adobe homes are an important part of New Mexico tradition, and they remain popular today. They are rustic, beautiful and very warm. The thick mud bricks make excellent insulation, so the homes stay nice and warm in winter with their wood burning fire places.
