What you'll do

We plan to not only help you create miniature New Orleans styled homes but we will assist you using recycled materials since we are also very concerned with our environment. Cardboard boxes will be reused as well as any other materials that we feel can be recycled. We are adding a creative flare but including burned matches for the finishing touches on surface of the houses. As a team we will guide you as you create your own house step by step. The overall all outcome will result in a memorable piece of a structured home representing New Orleans in which you may display in your own home or business.
