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!
This is a thatched roof A-frame tiny cabin resort on the Island of La Digue, which is the third largest island of Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. Depending on the cottage, you are either just a few steps from the sandy beaches with incredible views of the ocean or you’re tucked in a tropical garden with an upper mezzanine.
The cabins feature a double bed, air conditioning, a mini bar, television, phones, hairdryer, bathroom, and a kitchenette. This island is only accessible by boat from La Passe and features beautiful turquoise water and sandy beaches. Looks and sounds pretty incredible, doesn’t? I’ve always loved A-frames, so I would love to modify something like this to where you’re able to live out of it comfortably year-round.

This is the A45 tiny home. It’s a modern A-frame-inspired structure on a foundation designed by Bjarke Ingels with 180 sq. ft. of space inside.
A45 is the first prototype constructed in upstate New York and will be customizable inside and out for future home-owners to purchase, tailor and have the tiny house built within 4-6 months in any location, for any purpose.
Built back in the 1960s, this prefab house still stands strong today. Owner, Jens Risom, a legendary furniture designer, had this small house built on a seven acre plot of land located at the northern tip of Block Island, Rhode Island.
When he had the house built he knew exactly how he wanted it positioned on the lot to allow the most amount of sunlight inside. Risom says his favorite times of day are early morning and late afternoon.
The home is bolted down on a foundation to stay strong during winter winds and rough weather conditions. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sleeping loft, large living and dining area and kitchen.
At age 97, Risom still visits the island. There’s something peaceful about the island. It’s a unique feeling when you are there. Maybe because he has created so many family memories here over time. Now his grandchildren also come to visit the beach home.
