Gingerbread e-Template for the Candy Cane Gingerbread Cottage by Gingerbread-By-Design. The Candy Cane Gingerbread Cottage is a fun little one-story gingerbread house based on the Minimal-Traditional style house, with a Side Open-Gabled roof (commonly referred to as a Cape Cod style). 


This style of house was known as the "house that could" - with a simple exterior design that gave the small house the appearance of maximum size.  Either assymetrical or symetrical, and may include varied window placement, small porches or carports, and perhaps a half-story finished living space under the roof (think attic bedroom).


This gingerbread house includes a front wing, two porches, and an exterior chimney on the side gable.  A fun intermediate skilled house to expand upon gingerbread skills.
