Ecce homo... ecce domus?

How can we use the fourth declension feminine noun domus in an adaptation of the classic phrase ecce homo? In this instance the meaning would be behold the home or this is the house or even this is the place.

For the former: Ecce domus
And the latter: Ecce loco (here using the 2nd declension masculine locus).

Latin grammarians, I sing to you...

Ecce domus is right. Ecce loco isn't. It would have to be ecce locus.
