Wellfleet Drive in movie theater-one of the few left in the country. Flea market by day! Wellfleet, Cape Cod. >>> Wow! Is this still in existence?

Provincetown, Cape Cod Mass. This view is stunning when the sun is setting and you are sailing back into the harbor... all of the lights come on to welcome you in.  Ah, blissful!

October to early April is the Cape’s off-season, and what many don’t know is that the exorbitant prices for accommodations fall precipitously during this time. Despite what the low prices may suggest, there are plenty of things to do in the winter – without the crowds of the summer tourist season.

Hello, We are looking at actually re-doing the HVAC system (gas forced hot air) in the attic of our cape cod and while doing this I want to address future needs for finishing the walk up attic into living space. My question is about the insulation. It gets very hot up there in the summer (up to 110F...

Provincetown. One of my favorite places. This is where we spend every Thanksgiving with my sister in laws @ their B & B, Heritage House.

Add shed dormer to existing barn roof line, then add porch. :-)    Aptly named, because it looks like a shed that's been placed on the roof, this type of dormer will maximize the amount of usable interior space. Shed dormers are common at the back of Cape Cod houses, where the extra space they provide trumps the charm of a doghouse dormer.

Cape Cod. 1880-1960. This is a subtype of the Colonial Revival style and was popular throughout the same period though it peaked from 1920 to 1960.    Once the simplest type of small New England home, the Cape Cod is seen in almost every neighborhood. The principal advantage of the Cape Cod was its small size and economy. Where a larger Colonial Revival was out of reach for many a young couple or first time buyer, the Cape Cod was often relatively affordable.

I've already pinned this once, but there is the story: A simple cottage undergoes a sophisticated transformation that respects its past but celebrates its quirky character.

Antiques dealer Angus Wilkie has owned this foursquare early-19th-century cottage on four acres for 18 years. The house is located 110 miles northeast of New York City, where the Connecticut River meets Long Island Sound.
