The Bensen House in Grant, Florida (Cracker style)
Cracker houses are of three basic types:
1- Farmhouse (one room deep and two rooms wide)... 2 rooms, total
2- Townhouse (one room deep and one room wide)... 1 room
3- Plantation house (a simple home that is two rooms deep and two rooms wide)... 4 rooms, total
Usually a kitchen was built with a shed roof off to the back of the house, or separate from the main structure.  Outhouses were also usually built separate from the main structure.
