Mario is one of our Tiny House Talk readers and submitted this fantastic guest house/weekend cottage that’s an A-frame with a terrace (porch) and absolutely stunning views.
He was inspired by Derek Diedricksen’s $1,200 transforming a-frame cabin (check it out here) and spent Saturday and Sundays building the a-frame with his brother over the span of about 5 months. While the home doesn’t have water and/or electricity right now, Mario plans to add in a kitchen and some solar panels in the future. There is an out-house near the cabin, and a second-story loft that sleeps about one person.
With the porch included, the A-frame is about 5 x 4 meters ( approx. 16×13 feet), and the inside of the a-frame is 3 x 3 meters (around 10×10 feet). He spent $4,500 on the build and it’s quite fantastic!

10 x 10 Weekend A-Frame with Terrace for $4,500
Getting started on the build. Look at those views!
Things are starting to take shape.
Love the wrapping porch for outdoor relaxation.
This barrier protects from rain/snow.
Inside there are two cots and a table.
The ladder leads up to the very tiny loft (sleeping for one!)
Down the road this will become a kitchen
He plans to add a rainwater collection system here.
The giant hill provides great sledding during the winter.
You can see the outhouse just down the hill.
