two-room plan

A relatively common floor plan for a simple two-room dwelling in colonial architecture of New England, the mid-Atlantic area, and the South. This plan has many variations but usually consists of an all-purpose main room (the hall) and an adjacent room (the parlor) containing the best furniture and a bed for the parents. Also see hall-and-parlor plan.
