Cape Cod Cape Cod Houses Faced the South

Cape Codders years ago made common use of the architectural idea, common today, that the living room of the house should face the south.

This is to take advantage of the sun’s warmth, when it ranges across the winter sky to the south of the meridian, and to avoid it in the summertime when the sun moves across the heavens to the north. Usually referred to as “Southern Exposure”. Cape Cod houses were some of the first “real houses” in America. The settlers took every advantage that was offered to make what were rugged living conditions back then, as easy as possible.
