Cape Cod House Plans
The Cape Cod style house emerged in 17th Century New England as pilgrims created this design to provide protection from the harsh stormy climate on the East Coast. They used indigenous materials in the construction of the homes, including cedar shingles. Small panes of glass were brought over from England by ship and combined with large, symmetrical windows, and chimneys which are an essential element of the design to provide heat throughout the house.
