Cape Cod Architecture

Cape Cod ArchitectureI recently came upon an interesting article about identifying the various home architectures. First on the list was the Cape Cod architecture. The article points out that the design dates back to America's beginnings in New England, re-invented in the 1920's and popularized in the 1950's and 1960's. In fact, my parent's first home was a small Cape in Yonkers, NY.

Interestingly, the article notes pro's and con's of the style. The con's have been mostly eliminated by the modern versions we see in Eastham (and on Cape Cod) today. Read the article on HGTV's While there, check out the other 17 home architectures presented.
