A-frame house plans feature steeply pitched roof and angled sides that usually begin at or near the foundation line and meet up at the top in the shape of the letter “A.” It is often a typical style for contemporary vacation homes. The design of this style home became popular because of its snow-shedding capability. A-frame plans are more popular in vacation spots with a lake-front view and can oftentimes be spotted in ocean and mountainous regions.

Characteristics of This Style

A-frame cabin plans are often popular for their cozy fireplaces, offering comfort after a long day of skiing or snowshoeing. The typical home often consists of high ceilings, comfortable bedrooms, and lots of storage space. These homes are easy to construct because of the simple structure, and they have more durability than other houses as they can withstand any sort of harsh weather.

Due to the simplicity of A-Frame house designs – and the oversized windows typically used – more light and air is allowed inside the house. The outdoor space typically consists of large decks that may wrap around the house, which extends the living space of the floor plan. This space can be used for anything from entertaining to relaxation.

This architectural style is perfect for creating a special retreat in the vacation spot of your dreams. Even though the structure is typically simple, that doesn’t mean these homes can’t be extravagant. Browse through our A-frame cabin plans and start building your perfect getaway today!

TPC author Brian Toolan
