Architecture: Cape Cod Style Home
Cape Cod Style Homes have a history that dates further back than most styles. The Cape Cod style home dates back to the cottages that people built in the medieval times. They were adopted by America and were being constructed in the Northern Colonies. They remained popular in the early 20th century. Cape Cod style homes were also popular during the post-war building boom in America. They were mainly popular in the suburban areas. Many Cape Cod style homes you see today were built after World War II. Thousands of American soldiers returned home. They needed an inexpensive home for their family. These homes were the most popular choice for these soldiers.
