Very noice. There are houses in Oz - bungalows that have had a first storey added - called Cape Cod (design). I wonder if there's a connection? Anyway, I can understand why you're so attached to that part of the world, JustinO. You should be so lucky.
I guess there is some sort of architectural connection. . . but I could not describe "a Cape Cod house". . . hahahhaaa. . . all the houses on the Cape are "CapeCodHouses". . .NO???OK, ok. . I'll go to my room. . .hehe. . .besides, Peter is there. . He came for supper and just didn't go home. . . ;-)
A Cape Cod cottage is a style of house originating in New England in the 17th century. It is traditionally characterized by a low, broad frame building, generally a story and a half high, with a steep, pitched roof with end gables, a large central chimney and very little ornamentation. Traditional Cape Cod houses were very simple: symmetrically designed with a central front door surrounded by two multi-paned windows on each side. Homes were designed to withstand the stormy, stark weather of the Massachusetts coast. Modern Cape Cod architecture still draws from colonial designs.Oh, and the cheapest of them will set you back about $500,000 in Provincetown. :)
