Shotgun House

Long and narrow, shotgun houses are made to fit small city building lots. Only one room wide, these homes pack a lot of living into a narrow space.

Features Include:

  • The entire house is no wider than 12 feet (3.5 meters)
  • Rooms are arranged in a single row, without hallways
  • The living room is at the front, with bedrooms and kitchen behind
  • The house has two doors, one at the front and one at the rear
  • A long pitched roof provides natural ventilation
  • The house may rest on stilts to prevent flood damage
