First a disclosure. I have a soft spot for A-frame homes and it seems I’m not alone. It’s their simplicity and symmetry that I find so attractive. Driving around mountain towns I’m always on the lookout for a good A-frame. They have the ability to blend into mountain environments from the Adirondacks to the coastal mountain ranges with ease, looking right at home (pardon the pun).
Youtube is fully aware of my affinity for this architectural styling. I have poured over videos on how to build an A-frame, how to rehab an A-frame, how to connect two A-frames, and even how to move an A-frame.

Once I even spent a night at a bar with a general contractor buddy of mine going over all the different ways you could layer the materials of an A-frame roof. So when I stumbled upon an A-frame filter on cabinhomes.com a new bookmark was added to my manager.
