David has nearly 35 years of construction experience, and his business, “Casas Acapulco” in Mexico creates awesome custom trailers. But he contacted us to share his A-Frame cabin that he, his wife and six children built. He lives in it with his wife.

The one bedroom, one bathroom cabin is about 336 square feet. It’s 12 feet wide and 28 feet long, and includes a staircase up to the loft where the bedroom and bathroom are. Enjoy the photos of David’s handiwork below!

I’ve seen a lot of A-frames with a classic cabin feel or even a Nordic overhaul, but this gorgeous A-frame renovation is filled with mid-century modern charm and a totally unique loft set-up.

When you walk in you’ll find yourself in the large open living area, complete with a white fireplace and modern sectional sofa. It blends effortlessly into the kitchen, where you’ll find charcoal grey cabinets with a subway tile backsplash. There’s also a bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor.

The loft is something completely new, with a closed-off living space that doubles as a second bedroom, and a queen bedroom in the apex of the A-frame closed off with barn doors. There’s also another full bathroom. Love the decor? Jennifer, who renovated the a-frame with her partner, compiled a list with links here. Book your stay in this fantastic spot on Airbnb.

This traditional 70s A-Frame cottage in Huntsville, Ontario got a modern makeover and has become a stylish woodland getaway. While there’s plenty of that old school A-frame charm inside, the bright while walls, modern appliances, and new furniture make it a luxury couple’s getaway.

Off the front of the cottage is a large deck, complete with outdoor seating and a grill. Inside the lower floor has an open-concept feel with a sectional sofa, dining table, and newly-renovated kitchen. The bathroom has an old-fashioned clawfoot tub with a shower adaption, and upstairs the Master bed looks out of gorgeous windows to the swaying treetops.

You can rent this spot over at Airbnb, and follow it on Instagram here.

Some months back we showed you the Tye Haus, but here is one of her sister dwellings, the Foss Haus — another spectacular a-frame hand built in 1978. The home sits among lovely Douglas firs and is a secluded vacation spot for a family.

This is an ideal resting spot for hikers and adventurers, as you’re just minutes away from plenty of outdoor activities. But if you just want to stay snuggled in all day, the wood-burning gas stove, game cabinet and a good book should keep you more than happy! Plus, this house is pet-friendly with a $50 pet fee, which is awesome if you like to bring your pup on vacation. Enjoy the photo tour below and book your stay on Airbnb.

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!
