You may be wondering why such a small house has two front doors. Many of the Creole cottages in the Gulf states of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi have such setups with two doors, spaced close together, opening onto the front porch. The style usually has just four main rooms, one door opening into the living room and the other into a bedroom. The prevailing thought is that these homes were influenced by homes in the Caribbean islands, where the two doors offered a measure of privacy.
