Description
Originally published in 1970, this charming book by "native Cape Codder" Doris Doane (with beautiful drawings by architect Howard Rich) is a portrait of the quintessential American home. Economical, easy to build, and generally impervious to the bracing winds that swept in from the ocean, Cape Cod–style houses were built all across New England from the mid-1600s to about 1850. When the population exploded after World War II, tract-housing architects managed to adapt a basically 17th-century design to the needs of 20th-century living. It became the house of choice for the burgeoning suburbs, from the modest 720-square-foot models of Levittown to the sprawling, expanded Capes of Concord.
