The triangular design of the A-frame cabin is simple yet effective. The shape makes the structure suitable for areas susceptible to heavy snowfall as the snow doesn’t gather upon the roof. The A-frame design is also beneficial for warmer climates as the majority of the heat travels upwards, away from the living space.
Constructing an A-frame can be as easy or difficult as you want to make it. A traditional, equilateral design is the simplest to build and can be performed by a small team with basic tools.
The larger and more complex the build is the more difficult it will be. Larger constructions might require the assistance of specialist equipment and a larger workforce.
Ditching your 4 bedroom townhouse for an off-grid A-frame cabin can do wonders for the environment and your bank balance. The smaller A-frame structure can be easily heated by a wood-burning stove and the sloping roof offers a great opportunity for solar panel installation.
A-frame cabins are traditionally constructed from large wooden joists, built upon foundations and covered by a metal cladding. The wooden structure typically needs more maintenance than alternative building methods, but the structure can stand the test of time if well maintained.
A full assessment and necessary repairs should be conducted every 5-10 years depending on weather conditions.
Yes, just like a brick and mortar build, A-frame cabins require foundations. A huge benefit of A-frame cabins is that they are self-supporting.
This means that the structure does not need to sit upon a large slab foundation. This can save lots of money on labour and material costs.
