Mine is small1700's 2 room with above attic. a long back room was added side to side so it became a saltbox. finally a square was added to the back for a kitchen and bath. Has evolved over last 200 years and still in process of fixing up.

Its wonderfull to read and see how many of us are fond of the Cape Cod style.
This summer I visited the Cape and this time we stayed in the Truro and Wellfleet area, more north. Actually, as most of us know, painter Edward Hopper had its summer house in Truro. If you visit that area, you know exactly why. As an illustrator (www.nosybirds.com) I was really inspired by this place. So I created attached painting of Corn Hill, thats about 5 minutes from the Hopper summer house. If you like it, just let me know.

I love Capes so much. My husband and I are retiring and we have a Cape Cod house plan we plan to build in the Northwest. Most people move south when they retire but we've lived in the land where nothing grows and the grass is brown and void of color. We are more than ready to talk long walks on the beaches in the misty mornings and watch the leaves turn as the summer goes to sleep.
