A-Frame House Plans
A-Frame plans feature steep angled rooflines beginning low towards the foundation line and rise up and meet to form an “A”.
The A-Frame house plan rose to popularity during the post-World War II era of the mid 1950’s through 1970’s for the inexpensive nature of building an A-Frame plan and the desire for a vacation home. Modified A-Frame homes use the steep pitched roof with raised side walls to create a more conventional first floor.
Cedar, stone, or log construction is common for an A-Frame home plan which blends beautifully into natural settings. Steep snow shedding rooflines are idyllic for mountain cabins. The A-Frame design can also make great lake cabins or coastal beach houses.
Interiors of A-Frame home plans often feature fireplaces or woodstoves, open and high ceilings with a loft on the second floor, and expansive oversized windows to take in the view. Generally wide decks extend the living area to the outdoors for entertaining.
