Time Period & Region

The Cape Cod house style started in England around the 17th century, while the Bungalow style comes from Indian province of Bengal and didn't see much action outside of India till 1870s.

Which House to pick

Honestly the house are very similarly due to fact that many of the Cape cod ideas come from Bungalow style of house. If you want more order and everything in an orderly fashion we recommend the Cape Cod due to simple design and small size so you don't get too much in one package. While if you want a house that has everything packed in the middle then we recommend bungalow due to fact that mostly everything revolves around the living room.
