Quintessentially American, the Cape Cod is a widely popular cottage style that traces its origins to colonial New England. Drawing some inspiration from thatched cottages common in Britain, the settlers adapted the structure to keep out inclement weather. Characterized by its low, broad profile, it is generally a story and a half tall. The steeply pitched roof with end gables ensured that snow did not build up during harsh winters. The big, central chimney was the heart of the home: It provided heat, as well as light and, of course, dinner. Everything about the Cape Cod style was adopted for its function rather than its form. The earliest forms had little exterior ornamentation to suit the stormy weather of the New England coast. Colonial capes did not have front porches; however, they are common in many revival styles.
