Cape Cod Modular Housing by Bayside Homes Delaware - “It’s a Shore Thing”

April 20, 2018

Offering a timeless appeal, the ever popular Cape Cod style of architecture has endured for over three centuries. The term, “Cape Cod”, often associated with an abundance of this style of housing noted in Cape Cod Massachusetts in the late 1800’s, was originally built to withstand the brutal New England winters, Cape style homes are surrounded in a rich history dating back to the early Colonists.  The large central fireplace of these earlier homes supplied heat, light, and the ability to cook meals, while the steep roof provided protection from excessive snow accumulation.. Dying out for a spell, in the early 1900’s the style made a comeback, and later provided inexpensive housing for thousands of returning World War II soldiers and their families, While early designs were quite basic, the style evolved through the years, with the addition of dormers, garages, and many points of architectural interest, better suiting today’s modern lifestyles.  But what creates the endless attraction of this style of architecture may be deeply seated in their warm and cozy appeal, coupled with the affordability of this smaller footprint home. At the Delaware Shore, Bayside Homes finds this to be popular with younger couples and first time home buyers, who may not be prepared at the current time to finish the upstairs, thereby enabling them to save this completion for a later date, without necessitating the extra expense of “adding on” to the original structure.  They also are a preferred housing choice of many retirees who are downsizing here at the shore. While desiring a single floor lifestyle for themselves,they love the bonus upstairs for visiting friends and extended family, which provides a perfect space for visiting children and grandchildren.
