David Kaplan's architect friend, Brett Zamore, created a hybrid of two regional housing types: the shotgun and the dogtrot. He calls it the "shot-trot." Zamore's design respected the history of the Houston neighborhood while incorporating a modern feel. Using durable materials and energy efficient ventilation, he constructed an environmentally responsible house. Kaplan loves his unique home with the lowest utility bill on the block.
By adding a freestanding wall in the center of the long house, Zamore defined a dining area and also created an entryway for the front door.
