Our previous home was a classic New Orleans "Shotgun Camelback" called

that because the house itself  was (long and narrow) over 100' long, 35' wide,

looked like a single story from the front but the rear half had a second story.

 Built in 1870. Of course it had purple shutters on it after we moved it. 

  It had 11' windows, 13' ceilings on both floors.
