Dog Trot Style Houses


The dogtrot house, also known as a breezeway house, is a style of house that was common throughout the Southeastern United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The primary characteristics of a dogtrot house is that it is typically one story and has at least two rooms.

We, at Cornerstone Tiny Homes, are expanding our Florida Building Code Compliant offerings to include a Dog Trot Style Home. A new version of a century old proven product.

The breezeway through the center of the house is a unique feature, with rooms of the house opening into a breezeway. The breezeway provided a cooler covered area for sitting, and the combination of the breezeway and open windows in the rooms of the house created air currents which pulled cooler outside air into the living quarters efficiently in the pre-air conditioning era.
