A little History behind the Shotgun House:
The shotgun houseA shotgun house is a narrow rectangular domestic residence,
usually no more than about 12 feet wide, with rooms arranged one behind the other
and doors at each end of the house. It was the most popular style of house in the Southern United States from the end of the American Civil War (1861–65) through the 1920s. Alternate names include shotgun shack, shotgun hut, shotgun cottage, & in the case of a multihome dwelling, shotgun apartment, Double-barrel or Double Shotgun.
Several variations of shotgun houses allow for additional features and space, and many have been updated to the needs of later generations of owners. The oldest shotgun houses were built without indoor plumbing, but this was often added later, often on the back of the house (sometimes crudely). "Double-barrel" or "double" shotgun houses consist of two houses sharing a central wall, allowing more houses to be fit into an area. "Camelback" shotgun houses include a second floor at the rear of the house. In some cases the entire floor plan is changed during remodeling to create hallways.
