Various types of houses can be designed and built, depending on the individual’s needs and preferences who want to construct a house. An architect can determine what kind of house would suit a particular person’s taste and lifestyle and what kind of house would suit the land where the house is built. One type of house is an apartment, which may also be called a villa, loft, or bungalow. Other types of houses include condos, townhouses, row homes, pre-construction units, and modular homes. A condominium is different from other kinds of houses. It is usually one unit in an independent building or part of a group of buildings on a particular tract of land. Unlike an individual apartment, which is bought and never rented, a condominium is usually purchased by signing a contract for either a long-term or short-term lease. This is unlike apartments, which are usually bought based on one-to-one renting. The main difference between these two kinds of homes is that many different types of condo structures are available. Condominiums are usually separated into different types, depending on their use. They can be grouped either into single-family residences, or into different types of condos such as townhouses, row homes, and lofts. Some common types of condo buildings include condominiums that are used for residential purposes, condominiums that are used as second dwellings for residential owners, and condominiums that are used for recreational purposes. In these cases, the individual who owns the condo may not even live in the condo but can still use it as a house. One other type of house is a row home, which unlike buildings with two or more units, features one single house on its property. Rows have different architectural styles than other types of houses. One notable example of this type of building structure is a Cape Cod row home. This is because the front and back faces the Atlantic Ocean, providing an ideal setting for children to swim and play. Single family homes, also called tract houses, houses that have just one building on their property. These houses may be single-family homes, townhouses, row homes, or condominiums. Like other types of houses, they differ in their size, number of rooms, and architectural styles. Some examples of this structure type are single-family homes in the city, bungalows, villas, and condos. The typical architecture of these houses are those that follow European architectural styles. Townhomes are designed as houses with spaces between their floor plans. It is like a series of small houses that have been built in one large building. Its common feature among this structure type is that they are made using different architectural styles, making it easier for home buyers to pick a house among many available selections. Condominiums are houses that are built in a planned development or condo association. Unlike townhouses, which are usually set in different locations, Cape Cod condos are built in a defined area, which is further categorized into distinct neighborhoods. The typical styles of condos include those that follow European colonial styles and those that are designed with the French provincial style. In terms of size, the average size of Cape Cod houses is about three stories. Some of these houses have more than three stories, while others have two or only one stories. Most Cape Cod houses follow European colonial styles in terms of their architectural styles, while others have more contemporary designs. Given the many different types of residential building structures that one can choose from in Cape Cod, finding a house that will suit your taste and style should be easy to find.
