Although I agree that the house in THB is supposed to recall the 
house in LB, there are some differences. The haunted boardinghouse is 
a more or less normal house (architecturally speaking, although it 
has had various additions/subtractions over time) except that each 
side is a front, each in a different architectural/historical style.

The Drinkwater house has five different fronts and is actually five 
different, interpenetrating houses, somehow folded together. And it 
was designed that way deliberately, from the beginning.
