I love all historic houses but my favorite is a Dogtrot ๐Ÿ’š These vernacular forms are 2 pens connected with a breezeway open at both ends. This one in downtown Macon, Georgia has been dressed up with Italianate brackets. Look at those windows under the eaves!! Imagine before air conditioning in the South. This would've been a perfect sleep porch ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š#historicpreservation #historicgeorgia #vernaculararchitecture #dogtrot #saveoriginalwindows #sleepporch #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #archilovers #historichouse #thisplacematters

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นA mini-tour of Villa Thiene (completed in 1476) near Vicenza, Italy. I could happily live in this ground floor area with matching stone staircases on either side and a dogtrot-like room leading to the stables. Those patterned walls! Centuries later, it's shown up in American quilt designs. In love with terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings, and frescoes. Last photo is one of many archive/museum rooms ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›#historicpreservation #veneto #villathiene
