• 1600s - 1950s. The Cape Cod house style originated in New England in the late 17th century. Today, the term refers to one-and-a-half story homes popular in the United States during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.
  • Wikipedia has a fine entry on Cape Cod style houses:
  • It is a colonial style of home, which was built to withstand the extreme weather conditions on the coast. It doesn't have a porch, but may have a small stoop. It is usually square or nearly square, story and a half with a steeply pitched roof. It may have doghouse dormers on the roof. The style became popular in the forties and fifties and was easily interpreted as a modern home in the subdivisions going up at that time. If you google it, there are many images available.
  • It's like his home
