Many Minimal Traditional homes are a simplified version of the “Cape Cod” style, a name given to a wide range of one-story houses with a simple gable roof. In this case, there is a garage underneath what would typically be the front elevation of a Cape Cod house, and the simple entrance porch is attached to the gable end. Incorporating a garage underneath the main house was unusual when this house was built in 1936.
