Thanks to their unique design, A-frames have an undeniable charm that reminds many of us of our favorite vacation homes. However, this style of house is actually perfectly suited to year-round living as well.
A-frames typically come with lofts that make them excellent family homes, but the sloping roofs also mean that there is plenty of leftover space that’s ideal for using as storage. The following floor plans demonstrate this perfectly!
1. Two-bedroom Craftsman-inspired home from Floorplans.
This home from Floorplans comes in at a fairly spacious 970 square feet (90 square meters), and it offers deck space at both the front and the back. The living room takes advantage of the large windows at the front of the home, and a kitchen with a breakfast bar is behind it on the left. A bathroom is in the back left corner of the home, and a bedroom is in the back right. Upstairs, the second bedroom has a large storage space on either side.
