The ~/.guix-home directory is created by the `guix home' command automatically. 
The manual says:

So, after you wrote your home-enviroment declaration, say in the file 
myhome.scm, you'd invoke

$ guix home reconfigure myhome.scm

which will create the ~/.guix-home directory as well as the appropiate 
~/.bash_profile file if your home-environment also contains a shell 
configuration (this is recommended). No worries about existing config files, 
guix home will back them up for you.
