Driving down the road we see a real estate sign ' 13 acres , 3/2 Cracker house ' . She wants to know the difference between a Cracker house and a gingerbread house ! Hard to tell a smart 8 yo anything

I don’t know what a 3/2 Cracker house is, so she’s smarter than me.

A "3/2 Cracker house" is a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom cracker style house.

No, you shouldn't be offended.

Cracker House is a type of architecture that was common in Florida in the days before A/C. Often times they had large verandas or porches that wrapped around the entire home to shade the windows and wall. Read more at wikipedia. I assume the 3/2 Cracker House is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Cracker style house.

I like the Cracker style homes with large wrap around porches. I see them a lot in new builds around southeastern GA.

Learned something new today, my sister told me I should look at a dog trot home. She had to explain to me what that was.

Dog trot house was a Cracker house where the kitchen was separated from the other living areas so as to keep kitchen heat out of the other spaces . Dogs would lay there looking into the kitchen hoping the cook would drop something ! All over the South this was common , rich and poor a like .

My grandfather used to talk about 'the cook room" meaning the kichen. I have seen old houses with the dog trot with little more than a walkway wth a roof. Papa said the cook room was off to end in case it caught fire from the wood fires used to cook back then that maybe the whole house would not burn down when they were trying to put it out.

A cracker house has salted siding. A gingerbread house has sugar and spices on the outside.
