BOOK OF CAPE COD HOUSES

From the mid-1600s to about 1850, capes were built all across New England, homes to fishermen and farmers, to city dwellers and shipwrights. Their low-slung design meant they were economical, easy to build, and generally impervious to the bracing winds that swept in from the ocean. They could be enlarged by equally symmetrical wings, and if you couldn’t afford clapboards all around, you could easily sheath the back and sides with inexpensive cedar shingles and let them weather to a stormy gray. After World War II, these straightforward practical designs were adapted to 20th-century living across the northeast.
