Schematics and Plans

Rancho La Paloma Ministry Center collaborates with several volunteer groups and sister ministries that facilitate house and latrine building logistics in Mexico.  If you would like to build a home or a latrine for a needy family, please contact us.  We can arrange all the logistics for you, as well as guide your trip if necessary.

If you are going on a house building trip, please take the time to read these helpful tips and reminders before you leave for Mexico.  Listed below are plans and other aides for building these structures:
