Who loves a classic A-frame cabin for a good dose of nostalgia? Even though they may seem frustrating to furnish with their slanted walls and some may say they have wasted space...I still love them. 

Most A-frames were built in the 50's, 60's and 70's...and many are still stuck in the 50's, 60's and 70's. But when they are brought up to the current decade, they are so lovely.

Benefits of an A-frame home:

  • In areas with snow, the steep sloped roof keeps it from building up
  • Inexpensive and easy construction. Kits are also available

Downfalls include:

  • Little space for artwork
  • Spiral staircases are often used and not everyone's favorite
