What are the defining features of Acadian style homes?

Acadian homes represent much of the people and culture in Louisiana, offering a striking balance of traditional French themes and Southern American life. You can spot an Acadian home by its:

  • Steep-pitched roof, often incorporating gables
  • Covered porches for classically southern outdoor living
  • Brick or stone exterior features
While many Acadian homes are one-story, many modern designs incorporate additional living spaces or storage on a second story. Want to find out more? Contact your local Acadian home builder to set up an appointment.
