New Orleans Camelback
This was the largest house that Keith Long taught, in fact
we built it
in two pieces so we could transport it home!
No one knows exactly how the camelback style developed,
but you see quite a few in New Orleans, and many people convert single shotguns
into camelbacks for extra room. It is essentially a shotgun style house
with a second story on the back section only.

The front room is a parlor
Next comes the family room, which is awaiting a new sofa,
but does have the TV in place over the fireplace!
I plan to add a half bath under the stairs (eventually)
The kitchen still doesn't have its upper cabinets, but
I did make the lower ones as well as the French door fridge. Many of the
items on counters and shelves came from the annual swap at Half Scale Digest.
The upstairs hall has a Munch Four Seasons screen that
First Bedroom, complete with cat bed and scratching post
Master Bedroom has flocked wallpaper
