Mid Century Modern A Frame Cabins

Dave over at Grain Edit posted some pictures of an old booklet called Second Homes for Leisure Living by Douglas Fir Plywood Association.  The booklet contains a few modern prefab designs from various architects including including George Matsumoto, Frederick Liebhardt, David George, and Henrik Bull.

There are some really fascinating A-Frames, one of them with an upstairs deck which was a first for me to see.  Here is a screenshot of the A Frames, for the rest of the scans please visit Grain Edit.  You won’t regret jumping over to Dave’s post.

    There's something about A frames that I love… I can't get over the first design shown here (Double Deck). Nice big windows and a balcony, this would be my choice to build/renovate in the mountains 🙂

    It looks like a pyramid to me.

    I found the site where this booklet can be downloaded in many formats.

    It includes not only the pics, but also the floor plans.
