A-Frame homes fit beautifully in any scenic location. With its steeply pitched roof that forms the “A” of the name (sometimes reaching all the way to the ground), these rustic vacation homes usually hold a large window wall that can perfectly frame a lakeside or mountain view. Decks, patios, and porches give plenty of room for outdoor living. Sometimes this style features elements of a Swiss chalet, or the timber of a log cabin. Generally, an A-Frame floor plan features one large open space with living areas on the main level and a loft above for sleeping quarters. The ceiling can be left open to the rafters, further accentuating the A-Frame’s stylistic details, or closed-in for a more traditional look. An island kitchen adds contemporary appeal. Whether you decide to build by the coast or on a mountain top, your new home will be inviting, modern and economical.
