Shotguns and Dogtrots
I've always been a fan of these two regional building styles. The shotgun house with one room placed right before another was fairly ubiquitous in New Orleans back in the day, and although no one I know would build in that manner nowadays, there are many people who still live in a shotgun house with a porch on the front.
We've lived in Texas for many years now, and have had the pleasure of visiting dogtrot homes in historical parks. Even stayed at a B&B that featured a modified dogtrot as one of its guesthouses. The owner screened in the center trot and accomodated guests on either side.
Did anyone get any inspiration from a regional style when building their new homes? There have to be innumerable examples to draw inspiration from-
