A-Frame in Michigan’s UP Built w/ LaMar’s Plans


We’ve introduced you to LaMar Alexander’s A-Frame Plans before, but it’s always fun to see a fully-finished build based off of the PDF plans. Our reader, Blitztog, sent in some pictures of the A-frame he built using the plans. It was a “spare time project” for him, and the building sits in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Take a look at the pictures below, and buy the plans yourself here.

The green roof and log-like siding are fitting for a cabin.

There’s even a nice deck off the front.

    Cute and simple. . .I like it! Love that the metal roof covers most of the outside so less upkeep, and that it has nice overhangs to protect the siding. The inside is so adorable and still spacious with lots of possibilities. Yeah, I like it!

      I built an 8×8 a-frame for our chickens and ducks, and it’s awesome. I want to build a larger one as a guest spot since we don’t have a guest room!

        That’s funny because the tiny house in which I live is only 8′ x 8′ and our chickens can’t understand why I won’t let them inside this big coop. I am forever running them off the deck. Lol!

    Was just scrolling through the website when I seen the picture of that A Frame and thought “Hey, that looks a lot like my cabin plans?”

    Well it turns out it is and that A Frame has now been built by several people all over the country as a full time off grid, recreation cabin or rental.

    Blitztog did a really nice job and I like the log plank siding and pine interior. I think he will have more interior finishing and a kitchen when it is finished.

    There are more pics of this A Frame on my website by other DIY builders with different finishes and materials: https://www.simplesolarhomesteading.com/clientcabins.htm

    Just love all the wonderful pictures and heartfelt stories. I wonder…do you have a section for small houses four to five hundred square feet. We are thinking of retiring in Yorktown, Va. on my sons property. Thanks ahead for your help.
