Cape Cod Style Floor Plans

Cape Cod-style homes cropped up on the eastern seaboard between 1710 and 1850. Abundant timber resources in the New World encouraged the expansion of these traditional, one-room cottages and marked them forever as the quintessential New England style. Cape Cod homes are simple and symmetrical, usually one-and-a-half stories, without a porch. A dominant roofline extends down to the first floor ceiling level, and often incorporates dormer windows indicating living space under the roof.

  • Steep gable roof with small overhang
  • Symmetrical design with clapboard siding
  • Multi-pane, double-hung windows with shutters
