Remodeling Projects That Fit Your Home’s Architecture – Cape Cod Style Home
Originally single-story cottages with shingles on the sides, modern Cape Cod homes feature steeply pitched roofs, clapboard or brick siding windows flanking the front door, and often dormer windows on the upper levels. Most of today’s Cape Cods were built following World War II. This style of home dates back to the 1600’s. They are popular throughout the Northeast, stretching to Ohio and West Virginia.
1. Pop-out Windows:
a. If your Cape Cod home doesn’t already feature pop-out windows on its second floor, consider replacing some current windows with them.
b. This is a common feature found in many Cape Cod homes and will add a nice look and feel to the home while giving a little extra space to the rooms where they are added.
