snout house
 n.— «Bored with mere breezeways that connected detached garages to houses, homeowners sought to bridge the distance with direct access to kitchens, laundry centers and dens. Garages doubled, even tripled in size to accommodate second pantries, wood shops and sports lockers. Often these structures jutted toward the street, creating what is euphemistically called a “snout house” and throwing off any respectable sense of symmetry—unless you bought out the neighbors and added on a wing.» —“What were they thinking?” by David Keeps Los Angeles Times Apr. 30, 2006.
