Cape Cod Home 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 home plans* 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
