The Cape Cod home style originated in colonial New England and usually is one-and-a-half stories. Frequently, there are dormers. Windows are generally multi-paned, double hung windows with shutters at their sides. The best windows for this architectural style are double hungs, traditional in style, with grids to match the multi-pane look. French swinging or French-style sliding doors are best for patios.
