Dogtrot Dreams

Josh MuCullar over at Houzz has a lovely post on dog-trot houses, including this gem:

I grew up in the rural Piedmont of the Carolinas, so scenes of abandoned tenant houses, sharecropper’s shacks, and dog trots were the everyday architecture of my childhood. They were humble, poetic, and simply beautiful, without pretense. A very functional need was provided for with the simplest of means, and that is the essential lesson.
