This is adorable. Love that muddled gray/blue color of the building w/ that cream trim! This just might work for my outhouse paint colors! ;D Sorry, my house has siding and that won't be changed anytime soon since the house was recently built!

The houses are notorious for their layout which requires passage through each room to reach either end of the house. They were originally designed this way for ventilation purposes to make the intense heat of New Orleans summers more tolerable in the era predating air conditioning.

New Orleans Shotgun House. Tiny little houses with two rooms opening into each other. Why Shotgun? Open the front door. open first room door and open the back door and you can fire a shotgun through the house and out the other side. Probably not the actual reason for the name of these houses but it sounds good.
great small house... looks like gulf coast
New Orleans "shotgun house" from Michael Eastman's project "Vanishing America"...you have to walk through every room to get to the back of the house, no hallways.
A shotgun house is a nickname for a long narrow house with sequential rooms and no hallway. The nickname comes from the idea that if you stood at the front door and fired a shotgun the buck would fly out the back door without hitting the house.
