From New Orleans. The house is a long series of rooms one following the next from front to back.The saying is based on the idea that if you stand in the front door and fire a shotgun toward the rear of the house the pellets will travel all the way through and out the back door without striking any interior walls. Shotgun House.

This house is very old. It was probably built in the early 1900's. The tall windows are indicative of area back in the day. Tall windows allowed air to flow through the house easily. It's very hot and humid in New Orleans. Years ago it's how they stayed cool. If you call it cool...lol. You can walk through these without having to duck! My grandparents had a similar home when I was young. I grew up there and summers are very steamy!

Marvin Windows makes magnum windows as large as 5'w x 10.5'h. Marvin made our 5' x 8.5' windows for our raised Acadian that we are building in Texas. They are gorgeous!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to An Architect's Wish List for the New Year
I wish that all of our homes be good neighbors. While a complete break with the past and history may be cathartic, there’s been too much of it in the past century. Let’s find what makes a place special and celebrate that by respecting it. This isn’t to say that we should be trapped in some century of yore, only that we can be familiar when being progressive.Consider Janus, the Roman god of beginnings and transitions, and ask your architect or designer how to look at the past for inspiration and the future for hope.Good Houses Are Good Neighbors, Too
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 8 Benefits of Cottage Living
Lower your environmental impact. In 2010 the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, in collaboration with the Oregon Home Builders Association and Earth Advantage Institute, concluded that constructing smaller homes is among the best ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste generation from the residential construction sector.
