CapeBuilt homes are designed with the homeowner in mind. As an industry leader in coastal construction, we focus on building high performance coastal homes that are fortified to better withstand the effects of living in a coastal community facing weather events including natural disasters, high winds, beach erosion and flooding, and the effects of rising tides due to global warming. Our passion comes from the belief and knowledge that coastal homes and communities can be built to higher standards through superior design, planning, and implementation. Located on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, we have been afforded the ideal location to design, test, and deliver a superior coastal home to provide more peace of mind for you and your family.
Absolutely! While we do offer an extensive array of existing floor plans and home models to choose from, our architectural and engineering teams can design a custom coastal CapeBuilt home to your specifications.

How long does it take to build a Cape Built home?
From the time an order is placed for a home to the time you can move in typically takes between 6-9 months. This is up to 1-year faster than a traditional stick-built home. Variables that can impact this timeline include, but are not limited to, customizations, permitting, local zoning, and site work.
How complete is the home when it leaves the factory?
Depending on the design of the home and the amount of finish work you want your builder to complete, homes typically leave the factory between 60%-90% complete. The majority of homes are closer to 90% complete when they leave the factory. It is usually a matter of attaching the modules to the foundations, connecting utilities, and completing minor finish work.
Is it possible to tour the manufacturing facility?
Yes. Homebuyers may tour the production factory by appointment if desired.
Do I need to live on the coast to purchase a CapeBuilt home?
Absolutely not! While our homes are designed and built to the highest specifications to support coastal living, you do not need to live at the coast to purchase a CapeBuilt home. You can have peace of mind knowing that your home was designed for the toughest environment even if you seldom experience it.
Are your homes “green”?
Yes. We pride ourselves on utilizing the best technology available to us and incorporate as many “green” and eco-friendly strategies, technologies, and appliances as the design permits and home owner requests
Will your homes withstand a hurricane?
While no home, engineered or stick built, is guaranteed to withstand a hurricane, numerous studies have shown that engineered homes do in-fact withstand hurricane force winds better than traditional stick built homes. All of our homes employ the latest technologies and adhere to the most stringent building codes to fortify, strengthen, and reinforce your home to withstand the toughest conditions and mitigate or eliminate any damage. We solely focus on coastal construction and are passionate about providing the safest and highest quality product on the market today.
