Shotgun House Diorama


As written by famed New Orleans historian Richard Campanella, “Few elements of the New Orleans cityscape speak to the intersection of architecture, sociology and geography so well as the shotgun house.” A shotgun house typically has one room leading into the next without hallways. This style of house is particularly well suited for hot climates because one can open the front and back doors, and the breeze will flow through the entire house. This is the style of house you see all over New Orleans from the French Quarter to Uptown.

Note: Colors vary, so so the color you receive may not be the color in the picture.

Pete of Pete’s Papercrafts is a master of including small details in his dioramas. Look closely!
