Don’t you just love a shotgun house? A shotgun house typically has one room leading into the next without hallways. This style of house is particularly well suited for hot climates because one can open the front and back doors, and the breeze will flow through the entire house, and the porch provides shade for outdoor visiting. Shotgun architecture is now recognized as an African American contribution to American architectural styles. It also is a great choice for those considering the cottage way of life! Here are some wonderful shotgun houses!
