A-Frame CottageÂ 24' xÂ 24'Â - Building Plan
Build a great cottage like this one as a staff or guest house, lakeside retreat or for an array of other uses! A-Frame cottages can be erected in very little time and are perfect for high wind or snow load areas. Also, because the sides are all roof, expensive siding costs are eliminated. Make the cottage's roof out of metal as shown, or save even more $ using a plywood and shingle system.
This cottage offers almost 1200 feet of floor space on two floors. There are two bedrooms on the upper level, and with the first floor open concept, flexibility and spaciousness abound. A-Frame cottages require no centre bearing walls! And best of all, you can sleep up to 10 in a pinch, for those busy long weekends!
