The windows of Cape Cod homes are widely similar to those of other traditional houses. The things that give cape units character, though, are the details unique to them.
Transom windows are a different kind of specialty window that, despite not many homeowners knowing about them, have been a key architectural element in many classic and historical homes. They have a flexible design and are used to add more light and air in a room that already has enough windows.
