Here’s a fun spot to unwind for a weekend getaway! This adorable A-frame looks like it was based on some of Deek’s A-Frame plans, and the result is a great off-grid glamping cabin.

It sits on a little farmette where there are ducks and chickens and fresh strawberries. The nearby water and overgrown foliage provide a home for local wildlife.

Take a look at it below! I want to build one now.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Anyone else dreaming of all the places you’d like to go once this pandemic is under control? The Tye Haus A-Frame in Washington is high on my “must stay” list.

This is a spectacular Airbnb rental (@tyehaus on Instagram) that sits next to two other similar a-frames. It clocks in at just over 1,000 square feet and is someplace I could live forever. It even has a hot tub!

The downstairs features a great open concept living area with a wood-burning stove and kitchen at the back of the house. Go upstairs in the loft to find two queen beds. Get more details and book your stay on Airbnb!
