The typical shotgun house has a living room where you first enter and a dining room and kitchen. This Camelback shotgun House Plan depicts the narrow single-story dwelling popular in New Orleans in the early nineteenth century. The long, thin design was popular among West African and Haitian immigrants, and it was ideal for small plots of land.
