As part of his celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, here is the Alberta A-Frame Cottage design by Robinson Residential.

The Alberta cottage is an ‘A’ frame in the “Times New Roman Style”. A frames were very popular in the 60’s and 70’s as they were a pretty simple structure that went up fast and did not take a lot of framing skills or materials. The look of an A frame became what many thought of as a cottage at that time.

One of the biggest hurdles designing them was finding a way to incorporate the stairs between the levels, as headroom was decreased on the top floor. In this plan, I have made the cottage a back to front split so that the stairs are essentially a hallway connecting the spaces. The kitchen is at the lowest level and has a large eating island. The bathroom and laundry are also on this floor. Storage would be built into the sloped exterior walls. Up a few feet is a living room with a very high ceiling and lots of rear facing windows. Above the kitchen we have the bedroom which has it’s own private exterior balcony.

While not tiny, this is a small cottage that should offer lots of storage, abundant windows and the cabin atmosphere that only an A frame can provide.

You might remember Robinson Residential’s work from their amazing Dragonfly 20 Tiny House.

Designer John Robinson just got in touch with us to tell us about a new design series of his: 13 small homes inspired by one of the ten provinces and 3 territories of Canada to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary!

Canada has a very diverse terrain and culture and I want to highlight those unique aspects with these homes. These designs are between 250 and 700 square feet, and provide unique living spaces for people, who want to live in something that is not ordinary and experience architecture of other locales.

These homes will likely not be as affordable as many people will request, but by building them themselves and re-using existing materials, there are potential cost savings. We will offer very detailed construction drawings for these homes so that self builds are possible and practical. The plans follow most building codes but zoning issues may remain in some areas for homes of this size.

We are launching these plans every Friday and will continue doing so for the next 10 weeks…We can modify these plans to suit particular situations as well.

So come Tiny House Talk each week to see the latest from Robinson Designs, starting with the Nova Scotia and Alberta A frame plans that have already been released.
