The Cape Cod design of the Buckeye home plan originated from the early 18th century. New England settlers used timbered English houses with a entry hall and living room parlor as a model, and adapted it to New England's weather and natural resources. The Buckeye house plan is a one to one-and-a-half story dormered home featuring steep roof with side gables and an overhang. The Buckeye features a great room, cathedral ceilings, a front porch and a rear deck. The home is typically covered in clapboard or shingles and is symmetrical in appearance with a central door, multi-paned, double-hung windows, shutters, a formal, center-hall floor plan, and little exterior ornamentation.
The Buckeye from Price Custom Homes fits nicely in Eastern, Southern, and Central Ohio.
