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 de-
signers 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  archi-
tects 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.

The lovely A Frame pictured below is from House Plans And More and fea-
tures  a  soaring two and a half story living room with a floor-to-ceiling 
fireplace.  A large wraparound deck expands the interior living space dur-
ing the warmer months.

The unique waterfront design that  follows  --  also  from  House Plans And More -- has both upper and lower wraparound decks for even more outdoor living area!

The unusual -- albeit striking -- modified A Frame log home design pictured below is from Log Castles By Bet'r Bilt. Featuring a soaring cathedral ceiling in the living room and four bedrooms plus a loft,  it has plenty of room for a large family and for entertaining guests.
