The A-Frame Cabin - Back To Basics ...

Updated: Apr 2, 2021

Throughout the years it has always been a treasured privilege to receive a request to provide custom design service for any new residential or commercial building plan. Almost invariably a phone call or email has initiated correspondences, followed with discussions and a meeting, as is typical in design/build relations. Many of our projects have been very sizeable, while a good number have been on the modest size, even approaching what is currently referenced as "Tiny Homes". Regardless of size, architectural style, or crossover blends of multiple architectural styles, all clients and their projects are highly valued and forever memorable.

The A-Frame cabin design previewed in this blog post is an example of the creation of a plan that offers solid curb appear and utilization of high performance low maintenance materials, in answer to our client's expressed design preferences, all the while targeting the client's budget parameters for their project.

Though not yet illustrated in this blog post's images, concepts for finishing the lower level are being formulated to incorporate the following spaces: A large family room, a bedroom and bath, a mechanical room, and a walkout area to an exterior patio.

This plan's name is simply "The A-Frame Cabin."
