The Cape Cod I

Architect's Notes

The Cape Cod was ubiquitous in the pre-War suburbs of the 1920s and 30s, when it was the most popular house style in the US. These one and a half story wood homes were patterned on yeomen’s cottages found in the original coastal settlements of Eastern Massachusetts. The Colonial Revival style saw details from different traditional eras freely combined; Cape Cod houses typically added Georgian or Palladian door surrounds to give it a more formal face. This model also includes the engaged pilaster and entablature common to the Greek Revival era.
