A-Frame Glamping on the Mississippi River


Here’s another A-Frame inspired by Deek Diedricksen’s plans. Because of the hot weather in Missouri, they decided to frame in the expansion and it makes for some great extra space — very clever adaptation!

You can book your stay here on Airbnb. There’s a nearby bathroom cabin with enclosed outdoor showers and private toilet/sink areas, as well as an outdoor kitchen with gas and charcoal grills, a microwave and gas camp stove.

For an additional fee, you can rent a kid’s tepee tent and make it a family vacation (the a-frame holds a queen-sized bed). Want to build your own? Get the plans here!

A sitting area with an off-grid cooler air conditioner (that they say really works!)

    Looks great! I do like this design a lot better than the usual A frame head banger style. Seems a lot more open!

    Certainly a much bigger type construction that Deek was doing circa 2012ish.

    Much more liveable too, to my thinking.
