    I have...

    done it like that several times. The key is having proper access to service the unit. Usually getting the duct work from one side of the house to the other can be a pain, if there are windows. Usually requires adding bench seats below the windows to conceal the duct. Are both floors finished? The last 3 cape's we did, we went with mini-splits. But it can be done either way.
