Built in 1975 from a Bow House kit, the home is pleasantly understated but elegant and sophisticated. Bow House, started in 1971, produces “Museum Quality” home building kits that are custom designed for the homeowner. According to the Bow House website,, they have built 425 homes across North America.”This was No. 10,” Elaine said, pointing out that the kits are numbered. Bow House homes are reproductions of the 300-year-old Bowed roof Cape found in Colonial Cape Cod. The timeless design gets its name because the shape of the roof looks like the bow of a ship, Mel explained.
