The Village Of Tularosa, New Mexico Is Full Of Pride, History, Tradition & Character! Historic Buildings Like This Remind Us Of How Things Used To Be Built. Notice The Thickness Of These Old Walls!
Notice Also All Of The Stray Nails In The Walls... Chile Ristras?
The Trouble With Some Of These Homes, Though, Is Not How They Were Constructed, But WHERE They Were Constructed...
For Instance, Look At The Placement Of This Home.
