A Frame Cabin Plans...
"A" is for Adventurous!

The striking A Frame cabin plans featured here are bold and adventurous . . . even daring at times.  The triangular shape formed by its steeply sloping sides has been present throughout history.  However, it saw a surge in popularity around the globe after World War II, roughly from the mid-1950s through the 1970s . . . . .

Since that time, architects and designers have modified the shape to express themselves in a variety of unique and imaginative ways!


An A Frame is designed to bear a load in a lightweight, economical manner.  Relatively inexpensive to build, they are very adaptable, enabling architects to experiment with more and more modern designs. 

The adaptability of A Frame designs is clearly evident in the two examples pictured below -- each of which differs dramatically from the other.  The western mountain hideaway on the left is from Aspen Log Homes.  On the right is a more conservative midwestern design by Sala Architects.

Pictured below is another unique design by Sala Architects.  Note how the leg of the "A" steps back on the left side and is cropped at a higher level than the leg on the right side.
