As a supplement to yesterday’s little rant about cooling your home, I present to you the Dogtrot House: two cabins with a shared roof connected by a breezeway. Cabin doors open onto the breezeway– or dogtrot. It’s all about air circulation. One cabin served as kitchen and dining area, the other was living and bedrooms. Lots of open windows. Can’t find any information on how they were typically oriented (N-S).
That infallible source has more.
