I'm looking for 1/72 scale paper houses for WWII in Europe, mainly Normandy or France, but I cannot find any.

Have you checked Wargame Vault? There might be some on that site.

I did but could not find nothing except ruins which I'm not interested. Cheers,

Poke around here:
It's more fantasy and medieval, but I think there are some that would work for you. Also see his modeling guide on the home page, it's got percentages to print at your scale of choice.

I loaded up on anything looking it could be from the Napoleonic era but think easily could be used for WWII.
Just search back here maybe 8 years.
I mount my houses around wood blocks, only need to be under the roof edge to give them weight.

Buy Wargames Vault 28mm. If your printer won't scale down, office Depot's will. Actually, never a bad idea to go slightly early on terrain. If you build Bauhaus, your choices are WWII or Cold War Gone Hot. If you build half-timbering, that same building can be used over a period of 500+ years.

Salutations, Blacksmith and gentlefolk,

You might want to check out

Hint, for printing out at different scales than original: (I use IrfanView, Paint.Net (aka paintdotnet), and ClipMate clipboard extender)

Figure out the size of printed page (7.5"x10" in USA) in the original scale (so converting 1/64 models to 1/72 you'd create a page 8.44" x 11.125"). Then copy and paste from the original onto that page, and when page is filled, print that page to the size desired.

Some years ago I found a site with some very nice c. 1940s buildings and walls appropriate for France or NW Europe. I can't recall the site address, but it was intended for one of the SF WWII rule sets with robots, etc.-- possibly Gearkrieg. Might be worth a google search using that term.

PaperTerrain has a range of European WWII buildings in 20mm scale (which is about 1/72). See them here:
