Des Plaines Cape Cod Homes
Often dubbed as the 'quintessential American home," Cape Cod houses have their roots in-you may have guessed-Cape Cod. In fact, many Puritans lived in Cape-Cod-style homes and, even today, their layout hasn't changed much over time. Cape Cods are known for their symmetrical interiors and exteriors. Typically, the front door is located centrally and flanked by a pair of windows on either side. The upper story may include anywhere from two to four (sometimes more) perched above the lower story's windows.
Cape Cods can be found in various sizes and are known for their large living spaces, low ceilings, and bedrooms placed in dormers or beneath gables. These houses tend to have large chimneys and steep roofs, an important feature as the slope of the roof alleviates the weight of snow. Although this house style remained popular throughout the Colonial era, it enjoyed a terrific boom after WWII. Cape Cods tend to be easy to maintain and efficient to heat and cool.
