The double-pile house, in contrast to all the house types previously described, is two rooms deep. This is a regional modification of the Georgian detached house (which has two rooms on either side of a long central passage.) Utah has no examples of the true Georgian form; instead, the double-pile plan generally reflects a New England adaptation in which the central passage runs only halfway through the house, with a tier of three smaller rooms to the rear. Other double-pile forms in Utah extend the hall parlor, pair house, and double-cell types one unit to the rear.
