Local Couple Build Round House for Protection Against the Winds

DEL HAVEN, NJ.- The Guerin’s didn’t build just any vacation home; they chose a unique, round house to fit their lifestyle and location on the Delaware Bay near Cape May, NJ.

“We wanted to create a home that would be open, energy efficient and resistant to the winds coming off the Bay. We built a Deltec home to achieve our goals,” explains Dr. John Guerin.

“We spend most of our lives in boxes. Deltec is a chance to get out of the box,” says Deltec homeowner and psychologist John Guerin. “I did most on the creative end and my wife Kathy focused on the details of the house. Our entire experience with Deltec Homes was delightful.”

The first round house experience for Cape May builder Bob Obermeier, of Town Bank Builders went very well. “I was amazed at the sturdiness of the home. I really like the house and would recommend it to anyone building in high wind areas. The quality of the building materials were over and above my expectations. All components were heavy duty and the house is very sturdy,” according to Bob.

People find a round home is earth friendly, durable and healthier to live in. A circular home requires less of a footprint than traditional box houses, withstands hurricane force winds and is symbolic of wholeness and completion.

The circular shape allows for less surface area per square foot than a standard home so there is less to heat/cool. In addition, with outstanding aerodynamics, wind literally flows around the home consequently cutting air leakage and further lowering energy costs.

“The open floor plan of the Deltec design is perfect for entertaining our friends, family and clients. We looked at dome homes, but preferred the Deltec because it doesn’t have sloping walls,” said John.

Deltec Homes, an Asheville, NC based company, is a leader in round home construction worldwide. “We don’t just build green homes: we build homes in a green way,” says Steve Linton, Director of Sustainable Technologies, Deltec Homes. “From zero waste and 100 percent renewable energy initiatives to our internal sustainability task force, sustainability is an integral part of our business.” “We look to make homes to outlast its neighbors and use as little energy as possible,” he says.

This is the future of homebuilding; a durable, healthy living house that uses less energy year after year. Some of the bigger builders have already committed toward more sustainable building, at scale.
