A-frames — like yurts — hold a special place in my heart. The unconventional structures aren’t necessarily the most efficient use of space, but they look awesome and give a great feel. This particular A-frame is 200 square feet and sits on a 30-acre woodland plot in New York.
It’s entirely off-grid, but a Cubic Mini woodstove and solar lights let you enjoy comforts, and it’s definitely a step-up from tenting with the king-sized bed. There’s a fire pit outside, as well as a nearby outhouse. What a perfect place to unplug and truly rest!
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.
Did you see the historically-accurate Viking hut we featured earlier this week? When I came across this Mayan Coba Hut in Tulum, Mexico, it was remarkable to me to see the similarities in the building style — the thatch roof, the a-frame design — just goes to show you that great tiny building transcends time, geography and cultures!
This hut in the jungle is an awesome vacation spot, where you can sleep in a queen bed while listening to nature sounds all around. There’s an outdoor bathroom area walled in by trees, including a magical shower. The hut is run 100% on solar power, and there’s even WiFi!
There’s a time for a luxury vacation, and then there’s a time for an off-grid adventure that gets you closer to nature. This rustic A-frame in Colorado is the perfect place for a couple or a handful of friends to get together and enjoy stunning views, tons of nature experiences, and a cozy wood-burning stove.
Inside the tiny aframe you’ll find a couch, and a bunk bed with a twin and full bed. Up the stairs is a loft bedroom with another pull-out bed for two. There’s also a kitchenette, outhouse, and shared shower house. Solar power will keep your phones charged and the lights on, but they provide lanterns and a flashlight just in case.
