Acacia House

This is a promotional video for another home designed and built by Dominique. This was our own personal residence, so the furniture you see is ours.

Industrial Farmhouse is the best way to describe the exterior style. Paris Boutique Hotel summarizes the interior pretty well. It’s that way Dominique and I like to live.

The house is super insulated with closed cell spray foam defining the entire envelope. We also added fiberglass batt to code, yielding very high overall R-values. We also used hydronic radiant floor heating with 7 zones. We wanted a ductless house, and did not add AC. This was near the beach so open windows provided all the cooling we ever required.
