A Cape Cod is a style of house originating in New England in the 17th century. It is a low, broad, frame building, generally a story and a half high, with a moderately steep, pitched roof with end gables, a large central chimney and very little ornamentation. Traditional Cape Cod houses were very simple: symmetrically designed with a central front door surrounded by two multi-paned windows on each side.
We have built many Cape Cods over the years. The customer for our current project wanted a specific roof pitch that we have designated as “the swoop”. This enhances the roof profile, and makes our customer very happy.
