  12. 12. New Mexican Vernacular
  13. 13. Haciendas • Small highly placed windows • Rooms only as deep as locally available vigas would allow • Covered walkways provide shade in summer and weather protection in winter • Courtyards with trees and wells act as swamp coolers
  14. 14. • Massive walls control heat and cooling • Small highly placed windows control solar gain • Exterior terraces allow for fresh air, ventilation, shading, and communication with each other and with nature • Solar orientation controls solar gain in summer Pueblos
  15. 15. • Near-constant earth temperature of approximately 56 degrees inside, year-round • Efficiently heated with small fire • Uses only natural, locally- available materials • Simple construction Pit Houses
  16. 16. Vernacular models reduce the size of your pie! (Which means more money in your pocket!) They also help the environment because they use local materials, minimize transportation costs and effects, and they can be made… by you.
