Nantucket Dormer on Cape Style Home

May 2012

This Cape style home was custom designed and built in Orleans, Cape Cod.

PLF Construction was hired by the homeowner/contractor to build the home tight to weather. This a unique home with many different details. A Nantucket dormer on the rear of the house. Exterior trim is Bodyguard, a product from New Zealand that is a finger jointed pine that is treated with a preservative and insecticide.

Flying rakes at the gables with a crown moulding detail. Pre oiled red cedar siding with woven corners and a Dutch flare at the base. A copper roof on the overhang over the front door. That ties into a architectural roof shingle. Kolbe windows and doors with historic sill and 1x4 trim surround.
