A-Frame House Plans

An A-frame house is a style featuring steeply angled sides in the shape of an A. The A-Frame house plan differs from other plans simply due to the shape of the structure. The interior of the home is based on the exterior being an “A” and limits what can be done on the interior. But one would be surprised how roomy the design can actually be. High interior ceilings, loft spaces, large windows, and gables are common features of an A-Frame home.

If you’re looking for a home that’s practical, easy to build, and perfect for a natural location, look no further than our A-frame house plans.

A-frame homes definitely strike a different tone when you look at them! With sharply steeped rooflines that go all the way to the foundation, these designs reduce walls and eliminate the need for certain supports that most structures require. This means A-frame houses offer great stability with minimized material use—that translates to more savings when you build! Many people prefer this unique architectural style for recreational cabins and other homes built in natural locations, and they’re particularly suited to cold climates because the roof easily sheds show and offers better insulation potential.

House Plan the Pikes Peak

Scoffers and non-believers had a field day when the A-Frame first began to appear. Impractical, some said; uncomfortable, declared others; too expensive, ugly and more. And yet people built them and enjoyed them–and like the Volkswagen Bug, found them to be economical and practical, and yes, even beautiful to many beholders. Through the years, there has been a steady demand for these ubiquitous structures, and Plan H-15 is one of our more popular models. With this design, you will not be experimenting or pioneering because it has been built successfully many times. Though it covers only 654 sq. ft. of main floor living space, it boasts an oversized living/dining room, a U-shaped kitchen, large bedroom and closet spaces, fully equipped bath plus a standard stairway (not a ladder) to the large second floor balcony dormitory. An old fashioned wood stove or a modern pre-fabricated fireplace adds warmth and cheer to the main living room. The huge glass wall that dominates the front facade enhances the romantic atmosphere of the vaulted interior.

Killington Modern Rustic Lake Style House Plan

If your searches have included the words “view, windows, vacation home, or waterfront,” you might have just found your future home. This 1,424 square foot stunner screams relaxation, rest, and memories of fun for years to come. Guests will enter the home from the covered porch that is the opening to the magnificent wrap around porch built for summer nights in rocking chairs, days with wet beach towels hanging on the railing, and weekends of friends, family sharing incredible views. Inside the main level of the home you’ll find the open concept style of living with the kitchen, great room and casual eating area claiming the back side of the home bathed in the natural light and views of the incredible full back elevation of windows, windows, and windows. The back of the main level hosts 2 of the 3 bedrooms that share the full bathroom on the main level, and the laundry room does a great job of separating the sleeping spaces from the living spaces. Up the stairs the masters of the home have their own private romantic hideaway that has an ensuite bathroom with dual vanities, a shower as well as a tub…and the private deck off the bedroom is a dreamy spot to share a bottle of wine while watching the sun set. The basement level holds the 2 car garage and could even be used as a future hobby area, workout space, or for a workshop or water toys.
