Cape Cod style house is known for its slopes roof. This house style is usually found in the cold climate area. This sloped roof is used to prevent a build-up of snow.

The sloped roof gives benefit to the home owner to build an extra space in the gable between the roofs. It is because the house is tall enough to build an extra space. Some of them also can build a complete second floor. They also can build dormers on the roof. These dormers usually have windows to indicate the living space under the roof. You can build an unfinished attic on your gable. The attic space is now can be used as a livable area.

The second floor of this house, is usually accessed by a narrow stair, or usually said as 'captain's stairway,' which has incredibly steep risers and shallow treads to minimize the use of the first-floor space. This house is usually covered with shingles or wood slats.

Weathered gray shingles are one of the most recognizable elements of a classic Cape Cod. These elements work best near the salt air, where the cedar shingles oxidize to a silver gray, sealing them from the elements for three decades.

The house is usually build in symmetrical design with clapboard siding. The multi-pane and double hung decorative shutters on the front facing windows is one of the things that makes this house looks beautiful.

The Cape Cod style house emphasizes the function rather than its form. Cedar shingles on the exterior and the roof helped cut the cold. A steep roof quickly shed rain and snow, so if the rain or snow falls, they are directly carried away from the roof and fall to the ground. So your roof will not hold much snow to make it heavier.

This house also has a big, central chimney. The big, central chimney is literally the heart of the home: It provides heat to all the rooms clustered around it, as well as light and, of course, dinner. It is located directly behind the front door, with the rooms clustered around it in a rectangular shape. A small house on a modest lot costs less than the average new home is the character of the Cape Cod style house.
