What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Capes Across America
In response to the hot and humid climate, the variation of the Cape Cod style for the Southeastern part of the country includes a large porch to shade the interiors from the sun, and large windows to capture cooling breezes. This variation also includes lifting the house a few feet above the ground to avoid the often wet surroundings while providing an opportunity for a grander entrance. And often the chimneys were placed at the sides of the house to keep heat out of the interior.
Element: A wide front porch. Colonial versions of the style did not have front porches, due to climate and construction concerns, but they are common in revival incarnations of the look. How to make it your own: Porches are a great way to help smaller homes live larger by extending the living space outdoors.
