Acadian home plans blend maritime Canadian and West Indian home styles that are raised on piers. Acadian homes have Georgian style floor plans that are two rooms deep, plus a central hallway and chimney. Most Acadian floor plans are 1-1 1/2 stories high and have a steep gabled roof. This provides space for an attic sleeping area. Acadian style homes are built of native cypress wood that is not affected by moisture or insects. They are also raised on blocks to protect them from flooding, termites and heat. A 1970’s renaissance created a Cajun and Creole revival that included French Creole architecture and a building boom of this charming home style.
