Gingerbread e-Template for the New England Salt-Box Gingerbread House by Gingerbread-By-Design.  This is a cute little New England Salt-Box Gingerbread House, with the style reminiscent of days-gone-by, and could easily be a real house on any street in the New England area of the US!  Originating from a classic I-house form, in the early 18th century the I-house footprint was expanded to the rear to provide more interior space, resulting in the one and one-half room deep Salt-Box house design.


This gingerbread house is great for novice builders.  A little more difficult than the Elf or Pixie house since the back side of the house has two roof pieces; one roof piece to cover the main part of the two-story house, and to one cover the one-story addition on the back.
