Double-Pile Cottage

Isaac Kremer/ January 9, 2021/ / 0 comments

A double—pile, 1- or 1 1/2-story dwelling with gable roof, most eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century versions have two rooms paired on either side of a central hallway (a). Chimney placement varies, with paired interior chimneys common. A flat hipped roof version of this cottage was also popular. Twentieth-century structures only approximate traditional prototypes. The central hallway is reduced or eliminated, the front door frequently opening into the living room (b). For eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century versions, see Swaim 1978, 40; Ieane and Purcell 1978, 53, 70. For twentieth-century structures, see Walker 1981, 113; McAlester and McAlester 1984, 98. (Jakle, 1989)
