Acadian home plans blend maritime Canadian, a Norman country, and a West Indian home style that was raised on piers. Mid-19th century these homes had Georgian floor plans that were two rooms deep, plus a central hallway and chimney. Most of Acadian homes were 1-1 1/2 stories high and had a steep gabled roof. This provided 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 including French Creole architecture and the building of these style homes.
