narrow shotgun house

Jon Miller Hedrich Blessing

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A narrow lot yields a narrow and linear, or shotgun, plan. The second floor is nearer to the street to give the house more presence. To the west (the right side of the photo) is a large forest preserve. Even though the lot is narrow and the building's footprint is small, the neighboring forest preserve allows for nice light and views.
