dogtrot cabin

dogtrot cabin

A dwelling, often of log construction, consisting of two single-room cabins separated from each other by a covered open-air passageway (dogtrot); a common wood-shingled pitched roof typically covers both cabins, and each cabin has its own entrance and a chimney at its gable end. The dogtrot or breezeway not only serves to link the cabins, but also provides an outdoor sitting area. Also called a double-pen cabin.
