2020 – Cottage on the Cape Idea House
Welcome to our Cottage on the Cape, a classic shingle-style home in Eastham, MA on scenic Cape Cod. Designed by award-winning Union Studio Architecture & Community Design, built by the region’s leading custom home builders at Cape Associates, and featuring the design-savvy of Denise Enright Interior Design, this home features a comfortable, company-friendly floor plan; welcoming front porch; an upstairs master with en suite bath; guest bed and bath; sleeping loft for four; a finished basement; generous outdoor entertaining spaces; a maker’s workshop; and an in-law apartment.
For our 2020 Idea House: the Cottage on the Cape, we chose our white cedar shingles factory-finished in a rich Atlantic Blue to save time and labor. We captured the full installation in this amazing time-lapse video!
We are inching ever closer to completing our This Old House 2020 Idea House in Cape Cod, Mass. Here’s a peek at our progress.
A heat system is installed in the bathroom floors for extra comfort, and Matt explains the plan to heat and cool the entire home with both efficiency and visual appeal in mind. Outside, the entryway to the ADU gets completed.
The window and door trim is preassembled in a shop, then shipped to the Idea House site. A large casement window gets installed, then trimmed with the preassembled unit. Meanwhile, the roof system goes down, one layer at a time.
