Cape Cod Shingle Style

This house is an excellent example of Meyer & Meyer’s work transforming existing homes into classic New England shingle-style architecture. The owner’s program called for specific elements to be included in the design, including wraparound porches on the front of the house, a completely rebuilt second floor, and an addition to the north side that included a new master suite wing and library. The house sits on a high bluff with dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The existing cottage’s foundation, chimney, and several window locations were retained. A pool house, family room and breezeway were added five years later.

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Black-Eyed Susan
The bright blooms are often the primary source of yellow in a colorful cottage garden. Tip: Be sure to check the estimated mature size on the variety you choose. It can range anywhere from approximately 1 to 3 feet high. This will affect your plans for placement when you're plotting out a planting plan.
