This beautiful A-frame tiny house is 252 square feet, but its extra tall ceilings make it look taller and skinnier than it truly is on the inside. The house sits in the Desert of Maine Campground, located near sprawling sand dunes smack-dab in the middle of the Maine forest — a natural leftover of the last ice age!

The simple cabin has a queen-sized bed, and two twin mattresses that can be pulled out at night for kids. A half-bath sits behind the bed, and there’s a little kitchen area with a retro mini-fridge, kettle, and Keurig. Outside the A-frame, you’ll find a small fire pit with Adirondack chairs, and a picnic table for meals. What do you think of this cute space?

A-frames are a fun design, but they’re not always the most practical. The Little A in Pennsylvania is an A-Frame + Cabin combo, that allows for a first-floor bedroom and extra sitting room without detracting from the charm of that grand A-frame roofline.

The main portion of the home is clad in bright pine boards and houses the open-concept living room and full kitchen, with an eat-in island. There’s also a full bathroom with exposed copper pipes, and you can stand in the queen-sized loft upstairs. While this is an Airbnb in Pennsylvania, I think I could easily live here full-time — even with kids!

Tucked in the forest of Jamaica, Vermont sits this fun, family-friendly A-frame decked out with Mid-Century modern artwork and furniture. The home has a finished basement area that’s perfect for game night!

Additionally, you’ll find bunk beds appropriate for older children, and up in the loft, there’s a full-sized queen bed for parents. The A-frame lacks nothing in terms of amenities — there’s a full kitchen, a bathroom with a luxury rainfall shower head, and even a single-person hot tub on the large deck outside.

  • Vermont’s Jamaica forest hides a family-friendly, art-filled Mid-Century Modern A-Frame with a game room.
  • The A-Frame offers modern amenities, including a hot tub, grill, and fully equipped kitchen.
  • Not suitable for young children due to steep staircases, but perfect for a cozy getaway with a stunning view.

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!

You can book a stay on Airbnb.

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.

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!

You can book your stay over at Airbnb.

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.

You can book your vacation at Airbnb.
